The 13th of February is fast approaching and that can only mean one thing.... it's time to brush up on your 'flipping' technique!
We love pancakes, and just can't get enough of them! Most of us in the Total Sweet office prefer the traditional pancake with a squeeze of a lemon and a sprinkling of xylitol to balance out the flavours.
What's your favourite type of pancake? We've collected a list of some different types but all seem just as delicious as each other!
1) Buttermilk Pancakes -a thick and fluffy type, originating from America. The secret weapon to its signature thick and fluffy texture: baking powder.
2) Okonomiyaki, savory pancakes - comes from the word okonomi meaning "What you want" and "Yaki" meaning grilled. It's made with flour, egg, cabbage and a choice of whatever endless ingredients you want.
3) Malaysian Apam Balik - meaning Turnover or Folded Pancakes, usually made with a rice flour blend, then stuffed with a sweet peanut filling.
4) Netherlands Pannenkoeken or Dutch Baby - a sweet souffléd pancake, often baked in a large, bigger than 12" pan. Then topped with sugar (of course we'd use xylitol) and fruit.
5) Scotch pancakes - small and thick. Often called drop scones.
6) Naleśniki - the Polish verison of the common Eastern European Bilini or blintz rolled and filled with sweet or savory cheese.
And the list goes on....looks like we've got some pancake testing to do :)
