Yummy Yoghurt Pancakes

Ingredients

2 deciliters of yoghurt
1 deciliter of milk
3 eggs
2 table-spoons of sugar
150 grams of flour
15 grams of baking powder
1 tea-spoon of salt

Making Yoghurt Pancakes

Crack the eggs in a bowl and add sugar, salt, yoghurt and milk. Whisk well together by hand. Measure up your flour and your baking powder and add into the mixture, little by little, while whisking hard. Cover the pancake dough with a cloth and let rest until you see bubbles in the surface. Put your oven on to 50-100 degrees Celsius and put in a baking dish. Get your frying pan ready, non-stick is preferable and add a bit of butter to it, ca 1 tea-spoon. Fry 3 pancakes at a time. Wait until the pancake starts to bubble and check colour underneath before  turning. When the pancakes are done, add them to the baking dish in the oven, to keep warm.

Serve with Nutella, jam & creme fraiche.

Pancakes with Grated Apple

Pancakes with Grated Apple

Ingredients

2 eggs
3,75 decilitres of milk
240 grams of plain flour
1 tea-spoon of baking powder
1/2 tea-spoon of salt
50 grams of sugar
3 apples

Making Apple Pancakes

Crack the eggs in a bowl and whisk in the milk. Take out a new bowl and combine the dry ingredients. Make a dip in the dry ingredients and pour in the milk and egg mix and whisk well. Peel the apples, cut out the cores and add the apples to your kitchen machine, with a coarse grater or just your ordinary pyramid grater. Add the grated apples to the pancake mix and whisk in well. Put your iron pan, or teflon pan on medium heat and add a little clear sunflower oil, I used a brush to disperse it. Fry on one side until the pancake begins to set, bubbles will appear, turn and make sure it is cooked through and leave to rest on a grid. Cover with a clean dish cloth to keep warm.

Serve with sour cream and raspberry jam.

“Lapper”: Norwegian Buttermilk Pancakes

“Lapper”: Norwegian Buttermilk Pancakes

3 eggs
1 cup of sugar
2 cups of buttermilk
1 teaspoon of baking soda
3 cups of plain flour

Making Norwegian Buttermilk Pancakes

Whisk eggs and sugar lightly together. Add half of the buttermilk and whisk in plain flour. Add baking soda to the leftover buttermilk and whisk, leave to rest until  the buttermilk “reacts” with it. Add the now bubbly milk to your first batter and whisk well.Put a pan (preferably an iron skillet) on the heat. Once you have a steady low to medium heat, add a small tea-spoon of butter. Use a ladle and add a 3/4 full ladle to the pan. Turn the pancake when the pancakes have a bubbly surface, and are preferably browned underneath. Make sure that your pancakes is cooked all the way through, before you take it off the pan. You might have to experiment a bit with the heat until you find the right temperature, that will brown the pancake and cook it all the way through and not burn it on either side.

In Norway we serve “surmelkslapper” with sour cream and jam, but since I had some homemade stewed fruit it seemed the better choice at the time.

Tip: This is more of a dessert and coffee break pancake than one for breakfast. For the breakfast kind you should have a look at the Pancakes with Summer Yoghurt, the American Buttermilk PancakesBacon Pancakes, Yoghurt Pancakes or the more healthier option, Apple pancakes.

Bacon Pancakes

Bacon Pancakes

Ingredients

3 eggs
1 liter of milk
1 deciliter of sugar
3 tea-spoons of salt
7 decilitres of plain flour
140- 280 grams of bacon

Now before you start making this you should consider halving the recipe, depending on how many takers there are at the breakfast/dinner table. This recipe serves 4-5 people, 2-3 pancakes each. If you can eat more than that I salute you.

Making Bacon Pancakes

Add milk and eggs to a bowl and whisk together. Sift in plain flour, salt and sugar. Mix well until the batter is smooth. Leave to set for 30 minutes. Cut bacon strips into smaller pieces and fry in a pan. Add the bacon onto a plate, but leave the bacon grease in the pan. When the 30 minutes are up, add to ladles of batter into the frying pan and drizzle fried bacon on top. Remember to cook the pancakes on medium to low heat, so as not to blacken the sides before you can turn them. I fried the bacon on high and then turned down the heat until medium to low. Turn the pancake when the batter has set on top. You can of course flip the pancakes, but the bacon strips makes this a bit harder, so I suggest that you loosen the sides of the pancake with a spatula, before you free the pancake from the bottom. Put it under the middle and flip over slowly. Remember that the pancake needs less time on the other side, maybe 30 seconds to a minute.

Tip: Remember to grease the pan with either the saved bacon fat or some additional butter, not much is needed, just enough to not have the pancake stick to the pan.

Enjoy as they are or serve it, as crazy Norwegians do, with sugar, syrup or jam. The crazy Germans also add cheese on top theirs.

American Buttermilk Pancakes

Ingredients

2 decilitres of buttermilk
1 decilitre of milk
4 table-spoons of melted butter
2 eggs
5 decilitre of plain flour
1/2 tea-spoon of baking soda (natron)
3 table-spoons of raw cane sugar

Making American Buttermilk Pancakes

Whisk buttermilk, melted butter and eggs lightly together. Add flour, baking soda, sugar and vanilla sugar to a baking bowl and mix it well. Add the milk mix to the flour mix and fold the dough together, be sure not to whisk it. You want to keep as much air as possible. Add butter to a frying pan and add some of the pancake mix. Check the bottom of the pancake and flip when brown.

Stack the pancakes on a plate and keep warm under a dish cloth or another plate. Serve with homemade strawberry jam and sour cream or yoghurt.
