Oxo's Good Grips Batter Dispenser and Flip and Fold Omelette Turner
A little while ago I was sent Oxo's Batter Dispenser and Omelette Turner to review and to take part in their pancake making recipe challenge. I love pancakes and Oxo so I said a big yes to taking part!
The Batter Dispenser appealed to me because I have never been one to make anything in uniform shapes but its never to late to start and to me a pancake needs to be round! The dispenser is really easy to use, you just fill with batter then squeeze to make perfect round pancakes, it also perfect for making cupcakes without the mess, bonus!
The Flip and Fold Omelette Turner is perfect for flipping omelettes of course but it works just as well as a pancake flipper, I am definitely not one for throwing the pancake in the air and hoping for the best!
With these new toys in hand I got work on some delicious pancakes American style......
Bacon and Maple Syrup Buckwheat Pancakes
(gluten and lactose free)
1 x Buckwheat Pancake Mix - I used this one
240ml Cold Water
90ml Vanilla Rice Milk
3 Medium Eggs
Unsmoked Organic Bacon
Empty pancake mix into a large mixing bowl. Whisk eggs, add to pancake mix along with the cold water and rice milk combine until batter is made and all ingredients are mix in. Pour batter into dispenser and put to side. Heat a little coconut oil in a non stick pan and put bacon under the grill. Once the oil has melted start dispensing your pancake mix into the pan. (Be aware that if you use the same mix as me it is very thick so the pancakes turn out better if you make them small other wise they are too cakey). Once the pancakes are firm and browned on each side put them on a plate and keep making until you have used up the batter or have enough for the amount of people you are cooking for. Don't for get to turn the bacon while you cook your pancakes!
To plate up: place pancakes on a pretty plate (optional!) then top with crispy bacon and drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy........SO GOOD!
When I said to Dale I was going to make these he said "MAPLE SYRUP AND BACON????!!!" but afterward he was in love with the flavour combo so they must have been good!
What pancakes will you be making on Shrove's Tuesday?
I may well be indulging in these again!
