pancake sunday

From the beginning, blu_line has recognised that there is so much more that goes into designing a kitchen than just creating a space to cook. Our kitchens facilitate experiences and ultimately form a part of the stories that our clients are telling. There is a wonderful element of discovery that goes into choosing each and every component of a kitchen and because of this, every kitchen tells it’s own story unique to that of our client. When we see a kitchen come together that is rooted in a history of who our clients are, we see a beautiful story begin to unfold, one that will continue to be told for many years to come. One where memories are made, traditions are built and recipes are shared. 

There is an element of nostalgia that surrounds the idea of pancakes. Rainy days, birthdays and family celebrations all come to mind. Food is such a big part of life, and not only from a nutritional point of view. Food plays an enormous role in creating memories, in forging relationships, bringing families together and building traditions. Food, and the concept of creating it is a part of our story, a story that has often been passed down from one generation to the next in the form of recipes, traditions and celebrations. 

This simple, age old pancake recipe has been passed through many generations and is still a firm favorite. 

2 Cups Flour

2 Eggs

pinch salt

3 Cups milk & cold water (mixed)

Butter for cooking

 

Sift flour into a large mixing bowl

Add salt and eggs

Slowly add milk and water while mixing until a smooth but runny mixture is formed

 

Heat a little butter in a pan over medium heat

Add roughly 1/4 cup of mixture to the pan at a time, swirling the pan to coat the surface 

When the edges of your pancake start to lift carefully flip your pancake (or toss it into the air!) and cook the other side 

repeat until you have used all of the mixture
