Dad's Recipe Tales

Pancake Day chocoholics’ indulgence

WDC has been busy working with pancakes in readiness for Pancake Day. We have also been collaborating with the successful Joe & Seph’s brand in developing recipe ideas for their caramel sauces. These pancakes include the sauce in the crepe batter and to make an amazing delicate chocolate crepe. Just add ice cream chocolate caramel sauce and nuts – voila, chocolate sundae pancakes!

How Dad Cooked It

Method

  1. In a large bowl whisk together the milk, cream, eggs, salt and sugar. Slowly whisk in the flour until very smooth. If preferred this can be done in a large food processor or blender in two batches.
  2. Measure out 900ml of batter, keep the remaining batter. In a separate bowl whisk together the measured batter and chocolate caramel sauce.
  3. Heat a 20cm – 24cm crepe pan or frying pan on a medium to high heat. Pour a small amount of vegetable oil on the pan and work into the surface with a kitchen towel. Use the retained batter to practise and help season the pan. (These can be kept aside for later.) Take about 70-80ml batter and pour onto one side of the pan, immediately swirl the batter around and down to cover the whole pan, pouring off the excess into a bowl (the excess can be added to the batter and used again.) When the crepe is covered in small holes and is cooked and browned on one side, carefully turn the crepe over with a spatula and cook on the other side until browned. Place the cooked crepe on greaseproof paper over a cooling rack. Interleave each crepe with greaseproof paper to make a stack.
  4. Continue until all the plain batter is used and then start with the chocolate batter. The chocolate crepes will be more delicate than the plain. You should have about 12 chocolate crepes.
  5. Present the sundae to your preference. Either cut 6cm circles and stack in an attractive mini tower or fold the crepes in quarters and stack or overlap on a plate. Top with a scoop of ice cream and pour over chocolate caramels sauce and scatter with chopped walnuts. (The jar of sauce can be placed in a bowl of hot water for a couple minutes to make the sauce easier to pour.)

Asparagus, Plaice and Maltaise Mousse Canapes

This is a spin on Escoffier’s white asparagus with sauce maltaise. The two are often served as an accompaniment for a white fish such as turbot. Here the fish is plaice rolled around asparagus and a maltaise mousse and served as a canape.

Asparagus Tempura Soba

This is a classic Japanese way with soba and tempura. Strickly speaking the asparagus tempura is kaki-age, made like a tempura fritter rather than individual spears coated in tempura. But such academic details seem trivial when it comes to tempura – any tempura is amazing – especially asparagus!
