Millions of familiesÂ across the country will be looking forward to enjoying pancakes today, Shrove Tuesday.
Whirlpool the leading kitchen appliance manufacturer, offers the following tips to help you create perfect pancakes to indulge your family in this great British tradition.
- Chill and set your batter â€“ It is important to let your batter ‘rest’ for 30 minutes, enabling the starches in the mixture to soften and expand inÂ the liquid, forming a lighter pancake.
- The batter will be best, and most hygienically rested in a Microban antibacterial filtered fridge such as Whirlpoolâ€™s ARC 6706, while at theÂ same time cooling the mixture to below room temperature, helping to create a perfectly sealed pancake in the hot pan.
- Perfect pan temperature â€“ Use the precise technology of an induction hob with touch control, like the Whirlpool AKM995, to get your panÂ piping hot, then tip the batter around the pan to get the base evenly coated; it should only take half a minute or so to cook, so check by lifting Â the edge with a palette knife to ensure itâ€™s a tempting golden colour.
- Saving the left overs â€“ If you have batter leftover, make up pancakes with it and save them for another day.Â Just stack the cooked pancakes between greaseproof paper, place in an air-tight container and store in the fridge of your WhirlpoolÂ ARC7550 fridge freezer for up to three days, or in the freezer for up to two months.
