How to Make Oven Cooked Pancakes - Make Pancake Day a Doddle

Whoop whoop - Pancake Day is nearly here (it's Tuesday 28th February this year) so not long now! Pretty much everyone loves a pancake, even me; but Paul (the husband) is a proper lover of a good pancake.

Trouble is I'm not too keen on cooking them since he can eat a LOT of the thin crêpe like ones which means I'm stood over a frying pan for what seems like forever.
No more standing over a frying pan and flipping it over in hope that you don't ruin it.  I say oven cooked pancakes are the way to go!   They're BIG and filling so just one does the trick, even more marvellous in my opinion. 😉

Oven Cooked Pancake with Berries

Simple to make:
It's a sort of sweet Yorkshire pudding batter except you must use self raising flour or it won't puff up. Pour the batter into a pan and watch it puff right up (it gets a bit scary) but it turns a lovely golden brown and then you know it's done.

Once cooked and you open the oven door, it will sink right back down into a random shape which I think gives it a proper homemade (or you could say rustic) look!  Drizzle with maple syrup, top with raspberries and blueberries, eat and enjoy.

Top Tip!
If you're feeding more than one greedy person or a lot of hungry kids you can make a humongous pancake in a roasting tin; as long as it's non-stick and not too deep it'll be fine. That said, don't forget you'd have to double the ingredients listed.

James says: Using vegetables in cakes is nothing new, of course, but I really like this combination. Beetroot has a great flavour and a sweetness that softens the bitterness of the chocolate. I’ve put it just in the filling and the glaze, as I find that adding it to the cake unbalances the recipe.

Old Fashioned Bread Pudding Recipe

I hadn't had bread pudding for years until a couple of weeks ago when I made Bacon and Onion Roly Poly Pudding; which got me thinking about food we had when I was a kid.  If you've never had bread pudding you haven't lived and have been missing out!

My nan used to make it and of course so did my mum.  I'm not a one for cakes or puddings, but bread pudding is a glorious thing.  Hot or cold, this is good stuff; proper old fashioned food.  Oh and when it's cooking, your kitchen will smell amazing.

Bread Pudding

There's nothing fancy about bread pudding and certainly no cooking skills are needed.  It's a great way of using up stale bread; in fact it works best with bread that's 2 or 3 days old.
