Pancake Day

February 5, 2008

Today is the day of Pancakes (or Shroves, if you will). What a more touching way for the Wonderbra company to celebrate it, than to send a message to all the flat chested ladies that their boobies are inferior and in dire need of lifting and bulking. I guess Fat *is* where it’s at this Tuesday.

German Style Pancakes in Lemon Butter Sauce

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter, melted

1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour and the eggs. Gradually add in the milk and water, stirring to combine. Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.
2. Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.
3. Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side. Serve hot.

Lemon Butter Sauce
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup icing sugar
Grated zest and juice of 1 lemon

To make the lemon butter, melt butter, add powdered sugar and lemon zest, serve warm. Yummers.
