When I was a child my grandmother used to take the time to make pancakes or crumpets, as they are also known, for my sister and I - what fun we used to have making and eating them. However, my grandmother didn´t have a Lotus BBQ Grill-she only had a cast iron griddle and we always had to do it over the stove. It is now 2020 and we now have the Lotus BBQ Grill – YES you can now make pancakes using the Lotus BBQ Grill. You will need a Lotus BBQ Grill, Teppanyaki or Pizza stone plate and children – yes get the children involved – it is fun and easy to do! Another benefit of the Lotus BBQ Grill is that you can use in indoors or outdoors, if you use it indoors please keep a window open. Take a look at the photos and you will see we did it indoors.
To make the batter, you will need:
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg beaten
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
Put all together in a bowl and mix together until it is a smooth runny batter.
It is now time to prepare your Lotus BBQ Grill. Turn it on, put your teppanyaki or pizza stone plate on the grid and wait until it is piping hot (around 4 minutes). You can now start making your pancakes. The size of your pancakes is up to you, take a look at the photo´s for a recommended size. Once the first pancake is on the hot plate, wait until bubbles have appeared on the surface. When it is completely covered in bubbles, turn it over gently using a spatula. Give it around 30 seconds and the other side should be done. Serve them piping hot with honey, fruit, ice-cream or as I like them, with butter and a sprinkling of powder sugar-simply delicious!
