Campfire Beer Orange Pancakes

Ingredients

– 500g all-purpose flour

– 50g granulated sugar

– 1 tbsp baking powder

– 2 ½ tsp baking soda

– 2 tsp salt

– 75g candied orange peel, finely chopped

– 2 tbsp ground flaxseeds

– 900ml beer (any pale lager, such as Heineken, Budweiser, Tuborg Pilsner)

– Oil, for the pan

Directions

1. Using a funnel, pour flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, chopped candied orange peel, and ground flaxseeds into a large plastic bottle (2.5L or 3L) with a screw lid and a wide mouth. Shake until well combined. Store until needed.

2. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat on a camping stove or over a campfire fitted with a grilling grate. Test to see if the pan is hot enough by sprinkling a couple of drops of cold water in it: If the water bounces and sputters, the pan is ready to use; if it evaporates instantly, the pan is too hot.    

3. Pour the beer into the bottle, screw the lid on, and shake until moistened. Don’t overmix. The batter should be lumpy. Let the batter sit a few minutes before using.

4. Add 1 tbsp oil to the pan and swirl to coat. Ladle about 60ml batter into the pan for each pancake. Cook until pancakes rise slightly and form lots of bubbles on top, about 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side until bottoms are golden brown, about another minute.

5. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding 1 tbsp oil between batches if the pan seems dry. Serve immediately with butter and maple syrup.

 

Candied Orange Peel 

Ingredients

– 2 large oranges, bottoms and tops cut off

– 800g granulated sugar

– 700ml water

Directions

1. Wash the oranges thoroughly. Cut peel on each orange into 4 vertical segments. Remove each segment (including white pith) in one piece. Cut into ½ cm-wide strips. Cook in large pot of boiling water 15 minutes; drain, rinse, and drain again.

2. Bring 600g sugar and 700ml water to a boil in medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add peel. Return to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer until peel is very soft, about 45 minutes. Drain.

3. Toss peel and 200g sugar on rimmed baking sheet, separating strips. Lift peel from sugar; transfer to sheet of foil. Let stand until coating is dry, 1 to 2 days.

 

Pandekager med Øl og Kandiseret Appelsinskal over Bål

Ingredienser

– 500g hvedemel

– 50g sukker

– 1 spsk bagepulver

– 2½ tsk natron

– 2 tsk salt

– 75g kandiseret appelsinskal, finthakket

– 2 spsk mallet hørfrø

– 900ml øl (Pilsner)

– Olie, til panden

Fremgangsmåde

1. Hæld ved hjælp af en tragt mel, sukker, bagepulver, natron, salt, hakket kandiseret appelsinskal og hørfrø i en stor plastflaske (2,5 til 3L) med et skruelåg og en bred mund. Ryst flasken for at blande ingredienserne. Opbevar indtil brug.

2. Varm en pande i støbejern op ved middel varme på en grillrist over et lejrbål. Test for at se, om panden er varm nok ved at hælde et par dråber koldt vand på panden: Hvis vandet hopper og sprutter er panden klar til brug; hvis det fordamper øjeblikkeligt er panden for varm.

3. Hæld øllet i flasken, skru låget på og ryst indtil dejen er våd. Ryst ikke i for lang tid. Dejen bør være klumpet. Lad flasken stå et par minutter, før du burger den.

4. Tilsæt 1 spsk olie på panden og fordel olien. Hæld cirka 60ml dejen på panden per pandekage. Bag, indtil pandekagen hæver sig en smule og danner bobler på toppen, omkring 3-4 minutter. Vend og bag færdig på den anden side, indtil bunden er gyldenbrun, cirka et minut til.

5. Gentag med den resterende dej, og tilsæt 1 spsk olie mellem hver pandekage, hvis panden virker tør. Server straks med smør og ahornsirup.

Kandiseret Appelsinskal

 Ingredienser

– 2 store appelsiner, bunde og toppe skåret fra

– 800g sukker

– 700ml vand

Fremgangsmåde

1. Skyl appelsinerne grundigt. Skær fire snit på tværs af hver appelsin. Skrab appelsinkød og det hvide fra. Skær de 8 stykker skal i ½ cm tykke strimler. Lad strimlerne koge i en stor gryde med kogende vand 15 minutter. Hæld vandet fra, skyl, og hæld vandet fra igen.

2. Bring 600g sukker og 700ml vand i kog i en mellemstor gryde ved middel varme. Rør i gryden for at opløse sukkeret. Tilsæt skallen. Når vandet igen koger reduceres varmen; lad skallerne simre indtil de er meget bløde, omkring 45 minutter. Hæld siruppen fra.

3. Bland skallen med 200g sukker på en bageplade med kant, og spred strimlerne ud. Løft strimlerne fra sukkeret; overfør dem til et stykke folie. Lad skallerne tørre, cirka 1-2 dage.
