Your choice of pancakes

Season 1 of my Afternoon Pancakes has ended, and it has been a great pleasure. Which of the four pancake recipes did you prefer?

I asked my great team of Pancake loving friends, when we met to try the Icelandic Pancakes.

We liked all 4 types of pancakes, but ended up with a tie between the American Buttermilk Pancakes and the Icelandic Pancakes as our favorites.

If you have not all ready tried all the recipes you really should. You won´t be disappointed I promise.

I look forward to a summer filled with sun, fun and good pancakes, and can´t wait til Season 2 of Afternoon Pancakes this fall.

Recipe Icelandic Pancakes

This Sunday I will host the fourth Afternoon Pancake event, and the theme is Icelandic Pancakes. Please join me, and try this great recipe (Danish version below):

Icelandic Ponnokukur

 Ingredients

  •     180g wheat flour
  •     2 tbsp sugar
  •     1 tsp baking powder
  •     3/4 tsp salt
  •     1/2 tsp ground cardamom
  •     1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
  •     2 eggs
  •     400ml milk
  •     120ml heavy cream
  •     1 tsp vanilla extract
  •     Butter, for coating the pan

 Directions

1. In a medium bowl, sift together the dry ingredients, and set aside. In another bowl, beat the eggs until smooth.

2. In alternating turns, add half of the flour mixture and half of the milk to the eggs, whisking until combined; repeat with the remaining flour and milk. Mix in the cream and vanilla. Refrigerate the batter for 30 minutes.

3. Preheat a crepe pan over medium-high heat. Rub with a stick of butter to lightly coat the pan. While tilting the pan, pour batter onto the pan to thinly and evenly cover the entire surface. When the edges turn golden, flip the pancake, and brown the other side. Drop the pancake onto a plate. Repeat with the remaining batter.

Serve the pancakes with whipped cream and strawberry or blueberry jam.

Fremgangsmåde

1. Si de tørre ingredienser sammen i en mellemstor skål. Pisk æggene til en ensformig masse i en anden skål. 

2. Tilsæt halvdelen af melblandingen og halvdelen af mælken til æggene, og pisk godt. Gentag med den resterende mel og mælk. Tilsæt fløden og vaniljeextrakten. Sæt dejen i køleskabet i 30 minutter.

3. Varm en pande op ved mellem til høj varme. Sæt lidt smør på panden. Imens panden tiltes hældes et tyndt lag dej på panden. Når kanten er brunlig vendes pandekagen og brunes på den anden side. Læg pandekagen på en tallerken. Gentag med den resterende dej.      

Server pandekagerne med flødeskum og jordbær- eller blåbærsyltetøj.
