5. Sprinkle your desired flavor (see below) onto the uncooked side of the pancake before loosening and flipping it over. Cook until excellent brown on both flanks.
6. Depending on your preferences, you can make these pancakes large or tiny. Serve with a drizzle of maple syrup, or with butter or crème fraîche. Try garden-fresh corn on the cob, crispy bacon or pancetta, blueberries, banana, stewed apple, annoyed chocolate, or whatever other you can think of…
Tips, Pancakes Recipe
The blueberry pancakes (shown above) are delicious, but the corn pancake are to die for. There is one condition: you must use fresh corn. Remove the outer leaves and carefully run a knife along the cob, loosening all the wonderful pieces of corn, then sprinkle these raw over your pancake before flipping it in the pan. I like to top my corn pancake with fried bacon and drizzle with maple syrup. This sounds horrible, but it actually tastes delicious!
