Hello everyone. My name is Shirley Murtagh. I 'm from Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA born and raised here.
While in Ireland I purchased several Irish cookbooks and would love to share the recipes.
Cheryl you were asking about a pancake recipe. I will send you the recipe via this discussion grp.
Makes: 10-12 pancakes
2 medium eggs beaten
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup of milk
1/2 cup of water
1 tbsp. melted butter
Put the flour into a bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the beaten eggs
Whisk the eggs and flour until you have a thick paste. Mix the milk and water and slowly whisk into
the egg and flour paste. You should end up with a batter that has the consistency of thin (single) cream
Allow to stand for a little while (recipe does not say for how long).Heat a frying pan until it is quite hot. Wipe the pan with a folded kitchen paper towel dipped in melted butter so that It is evenly greased. Pour about two tablespoons of the batter onto the hot pan, then tilt it rapidly so that the batter spreads evenly over the base. Cook over medium heat until the pancake surface has bubbles and little holes all over. Turn with a Palette knife and cook the other side for slightly less time.
Serve and eat each pancake while it is hot, sprinkled with sugar and lemon juice.
Cooked pancakes will keep for two - three days in the refrigerator and can be reheated.
Pancakes are a popular dish and when served with savoury or a sweet filling are aslso eaten as a light meal or a dessert.
SUGGESTIONS FOR FILLINGS:
Spread 1-2 TBSP of cooked pureed apple, stewed rhubarb, or a berry compote along the centre of each pancake, then roll it up. Pour a few tablespoons of apple-juice into a well-buttered rectangular baking dish. Arrange the pancake rolls in one layer in the dish and reheat in the oven to 350F until hot through.
A savoury filling for pancakes, such as a creamy fish pie filling, should be reheated in a little cream instead of apple juice.
THIS RECIPE COMES FROM THE COOKBOOK ENTITLED "IRISH COOKING" AUTHOR IS BIDDY WHITE LENNON
