Recipe. The perfect recipes for Pancake Day

From this Monday it's carnival here in Spain although this year it will be very different. It usually means three days of celebrations followed by "CUARESMA"' (lent) the truth is that without the dancing, the processions and the partying it just isn't carnival.

On Tuesday of course it's pancake day in Britain so here are a couple of recipes to celebrate the both.

Fried Milk

0.75ml milk plus 1 cup of cold milk
1 piece of orange peel
1 pieces of lemon peel
1 stick of cinnamon
80g cornflour
100g sugar
2 eggs
Icing sugar to sprinkle
Olive oil for frying


1. Put the milk in a saucepan on a low heat and add the orange and lemon peel and the stick of cinnamon.

2. Heat the milk without letting it boil so that the aromas are infused in the milk.

3. Dissolve the cornflour with the cup of cold milk.

4. Remove the peel and cinnamon from the hot milk and add the cornflour using a whisk mix until the mixture thickens.

5. Place a piece of cling film on a baking tray and tip the mixture onto the cling film spreading it out and cover with another piece of cling film so that it doesn't form a skin.

6. Once it's cooled place it in the fridge for 4 hours to set.

7. In one dish add th two beaten eggs and in another the flour. Take the mixture out of the fridge and cut into squares.

8. Heat the oil in a frying pan,cover the squares first in flour and then in the egg mixture and fry until golden.

9. Leave to drain on kitchen paper to eliminate any excess fat. Serve sprinkled with sugar.


The basic mixture for both savoury and sweet.
100g plain flour
2 eggs
300ml semi skimmed milk
25g unsalted butter, melted, plus extra for cooking
1tbsp sunflower oil

Optional toppings:-

Grated cheese, shredded ham, fried mushroom
Lemon, sugar, yogurt, maple syrup, chocolate sauce, blueberries, banana, fresh or frozen berries.
For a healthy topping try blueberries, potassium rich bananas, natural maple syrup and toasted pecans adding healthy fats, fibre, vitamins and protein.


1. Sieve the flour into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre and crack in the eggs. Beat the eggs with a fork, gradually incorporating the flour from the outside of the well as you mix.

2. Gradually pour in the milk, whilst whisking until the batter is smooth and there are no lumps. Stir in the melted butter. Cover and put in the fridge for 15 minutes.

3. Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. When the butter has melted, spoon 1-2 ladles of the batter into the pan. Carefully swirl the pan around until the batter has coated the bottom, cook 1-2 minutes on each side until golden. Repeat with the remaining oil and better.

4. To serve, transfer the pancakes to a plate and top with

125g self-raising flour
2 tablespoons caster sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
150 ml soya or almond milk
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
4 teaspoon sunflower oil, for frying
Pinch salt


1. Put the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt into a bowl and mix thoroughly. Add the milk and vanilla extract and mix with a whisk until smooth.

2. Place a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Add 2 teaspoons of the oil spreading it around the pan. Once the pan is hot, pour a small ladle full of the batter into one side of the pan and spread with the back of spoon until around 4 inches/ 10 cm in diameter.

3. Make a second pancake exactly the same way, greasing the pan with the remaining oil.

4. Cook for about a minute, or until bubbles are popping on the surface and just the edges look dry. Quickly and carefully flip over and cook for a further minute, or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate.
