White Chocolate and cranberry pancakes
Now if you like those big cookies that you can get with white chocolate and cranberries then you will like these pancakes. Once again, this makes an American style pancake but it is totally and utterly scrumptious, indulgent and well worth while. Kids will love them, adults will love them, in fact white chocolate and cranberry who will not like them.
You will need.
5 tbsp milk
150g/5oz plain flour
2 tbsp caster sugar
A pinch of salt
75g/3oz white chocolate chips
75g/3oz dry cranberries
A little oil
First take the cranberries and add a little water to them to help soften them up, you do not need to totally rehydrate then but just help them soften a little.
Now the way to make this batter is easy and you need it thick for an American style pancakes so do not add to much liquid unless you have to. First whisk together the eggs and milk. Then sift the four in to a large bowl and add the caster sugar and a pinch of salt. With a spoon mix the dry ingredients together then make a well in the centre. Now pure the egg and milk mix in to the well and work it all together with a whisk until smooth.
Once you have made your batter drain off the water from the cranberries and then add them and the chocolate chips into the batter. Stir them in so you get a nice distribution throughout the batter.
Now brush a layer of oil over your frying pan, use a non-stick pan or even better a heavy cast iron one. Then spoon some of the mix in to the pan and allow it to cook for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. A good way to tell if the first side is cooked, you will see little holes appear on the carfare of the batter as the air escapes.
Once you have coked them on both sides and they are golden brown serve them immediately with Ice-cream and a good drizzle of maple syrup.
