This is an idea for Valentine’s in bed celebration. Most of us prefer to go out for dinner but I think this idea is more hygge and also more romantic.
If you have kids you can also snuggle up in bed together and celebrate a long and cozy morning.
-1 tablespoon baking powder
-1 pinch of salt
-1 teaspoon white sugar-
-2 large eggs (beaten)
-30 grams butter (melted and cooled)
-300 millilitres milk-225 grams plain flour
-butter for frying
-100ml double cream whipped
Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.
Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and, using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing. For me, the easiest way to make these, is to put all the ingredients into a blender and blitz.
Let the batter stand for a few minutes.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. When it’s melted, add a ladle of batter (or two if your frying pan is big enough to cook two pancakes at the same time). It will seem very thick but this is how it should be. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about 1cm (½in) thick.
I also use a tiny frying pan which I bought in Ikea. It is a perfect size for American pancake dream. However for this recipe it is better to use bigger one since you are going to cut some hearts from it anyway.
Repeat until all the batter is used up
Use a christmas biscuit cutter to cut some shapes out from your pancake. I use hearts.
- Cut one big apple in half and leave it ready on the side to arrange your skewers on it. Whip the cream.
- Thread pancake hearts, strawberries and cream and alternately onto the skewers. Arrange on apple.
