A Conversation for Pancakes
peoplewhohatepeople Started conversation Dec 2, 2002
On attending a Pancake party for a friend a couple of years ago i was introduced to a revelation in savoury pancakes...Guincakes!!
A Guincake is made following the exact recipie and procedure for a normal pancake, but replcing half to all (depending on taste) of the milk with Guinness stout! What you get is a dark, slightly more stodgy pancake with a rich flavour, perfect for cheesy fillings or creamy mushroom. Guinness original is best for this rather than the draught variety.
P.S. It recently occured to me that, as pancake mix is roughly identicle to Yorkshire pudding mix, a GuinnYorkshire may be a good idea, and possibly GuinnToadInTheHole. Here is the recepie that worked well for me yesterday.
1cup flour (plus 1 heaped tsp mustard powder)
1 Tsp salt
1 & 1/4 cups milk/guiness
1 medium onion, diced
sift flour in bowl with salt and mustard powder
make a well in the middle
put eggs & some of the milk/Guiness in the well
whisk and stir in rest of milk/Guiness
keep whisking till bubbly on surface
Preheat oven to gas 8 with a greased shallow casserole dish on middle shelf
Fry sasages on low hob in very little oil until browned
place on kitchen roll to soak up excess grease
Place onion in preheated dish
Lay sausage (chopped into small chunks, ?thirds?) on the onion bed
Pour on mixture, trying to cover some of the sausages
cook on gas mark 8 for 10 mins
reduce to 6 and cook for 30 mins
