Hello everyone ! Welcome back on the blog for a special recipe, for this special season called “Candlemas” ! Today I would like to share with you my recipe for stuffed pancakes, a one I like to make when I have guests. Despite it’s quite time-consuming, it’s always very rewarding to see my guests being impressed by the final look and taste.
Let’s get pancaking ! 😃😋🥞
For the pancake dough, you’ll need:
- 250g of flour
- 1 pinch of salt
- 500mL of milk
- 20g of melted butter
- 6 eggs
Mix the flour with the dsalt and eggs. Miw until you get a smooth mixture. Little by little add the milk when stiring to avoid any lumps. Add the melted butter. Mix well and let the dough rest in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
Let’s get cooking the filling !
Let me share with you 3 different filling ideas.
First, the paprika-bacon one. In a wok, cook some bacon and red paprika (pepper) with soy sauce and spices. Let rest until making the pancakes.
Second, the potatoe-cheese one. Lossely smash some cooked potatoes and cut some cheese pieces (I personnaly prefer the ogat cheese, but any cheese would do the job honestly, each one can bring unique flavours). Set aside.
Third, the paprika-bacon-cheese one. It’s basically like the first one, exept that you add a piece of cheese when making the pancake.
Let’s get stuffing !
Have your pancake dough and fillings near by you so that things would be easy for you, since your’re gonna stay in front of your stove for a while (that’s really the only problem of this recipe, for me)
First start like when making usual pancakes. It’s when you turn it upside down that things slightly change. On top of the “cooked” side of the pancake add some of your filling. You may add as much as you want , but I personnaly prefer not to add too much, since it would make things difficult later. I usually get an amount of illing that allows me to wrap the “corners” of the pancake four times. After putting the filling, I wait a few seconds, so that underneath gets cooked enough. Then I start wrapping all around. When finished wrapping, I pressed a little down the whole thing with my spatula. I wait a few more seconds and then I flip the wrapped pancake over and press down again a bit. The idea is to get something as flat as possible and not a ball.
And voila ! Now you have to make all the other pancakes !
And… Happy Candlemas !
That’s all for today’s post, I hope you like it. Thank you for passing by and reading my blog, I really appreciate.
I’ll talk to you soon in a next post,
