Completely forgot that today is Pancake Tuesday or Shrove Tuesday as it was called. So in celebration I decided to make pancakes from Gram Flour as there is a bit of a wheat intolerance going on at home at the moment and it is the only flour I had in stock. It also used up the last of the Ground Elder I picked up yesterday and bits and bobs in the fridge.
For the filling, I fried off a small onion until it had nicely softened then added a handful of Ground Elder and a handful of Spinach plus pinchs of ground cumin seeds,coriander seeds and sea salt and fry for a further five to six minutes. Crumble in a little feta at the end then set this to one side.
For the pancake mix all you need is gram flour and water. I made it with 140g flour and 160floz water and the pancakes were thinish and crispish. With gram flour you may need to experiment a little to get the right balance or of course use any other flour you like. When mixed together I left the mixture sit for about ten minutes and meanwhile heated a pan with about a teaspoon of olive oil. Then just pour mixture in small batches onto the pan.
When the Pancake has cooked on one side ( about two and a half minutes or so on medium heat) flip it over and place filling on top. And then when the other side has cooked fold in two and pop in a warmed oven to await the rest of the feast.
