Pancakes

As I sit here typing on my computer, I can hear the rain falling outside, just hard enough to hear. This is called pancake weather in South Africa!! Whenever the rain comes, we bake pancakes as a family and enjoy the sound of the rain outside.

I baked pancakes yesterday when the rain started, so it worked out very well in the end. We had 2 savoury pancakes with tuna and mayo as well as ham and cheese. The traditional way you should have it though is with cinnamon sugar! Whenever I eat a pancake I remember the lovely church fates. Everyone always buy cinnamon sugar pancakes by the dozen!

I would like to share with you a great pancake recipe so you can bake them the next time you have a rainy day…

Bake while it rains and eat as you go along!

Ingredients:
5 cups of cold water
1/4 cup of oil (not too much)
3 tablespoons of white vinegar (malt is fine if you don’t have white)
6 eggs
3 cups of flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Method:
1. Beat the liquids together.
2. Sieve the dry ingredients and add a little bit at a time.
3. Beat very well.
4. Bake the first pancake in a little bit of oil in a frying pan. (paper thin)
5. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, rol up and enjoy!

Try this recipe to make you feel warm inside! This recipe is enough to feed alot of people. If you are only baking for a few people, you can just halve the ingredients.

Eat and enjoy!
