Plutonic Love - Italia's Mint Pancakes
Italia's delicious savory mint pancakes
- 100 g Plain Wholemeal Flour
- 2 Eggs
- 75 ml Water
- 175 ml Semi-skimmed milk
- Glug of Olive Oil
- 2 large handfuls of roughly chopped Mint
If you haven’t got a food blender to blend the batter together, sift the flour in a mixing bowl and make a well. Add the salt and eggs.
Mix the water, milk and olive oil together and pour slowly into the flour and egg mixture until you have a smooth consistency. Add the chopped mint and leave to stand for half an hour in the fridge.
Heat a little oil (groundnut or sunflower or if you prefer butter) on a medium heat and add a small ladleful of batter. Swirl the batter in the pan when it’s set turn over and cook for another 30-50 seconds. These pancakes are not skinny crepes in style a little bit thicker, think Farmer’s pancakes so do require a few seconds more to cook.
Serve with pecorino and peperoncino oil.
