Pancakes!

I was recently approached by the lovely people behind the Heston Blumenthal Precision range of cookware and asked if I would like to review some of their products:

Heston Blumenthal Precision Kitchen Scale


Heston Blumenthal Precision Professional Whisk and Heston Blumenthal Multipurpose Spatulas



Given that it is Shrove Tuesday (a.k.a Pancake Day!) tomorrow, I thought it would be a great excuse to make some of my delicious pancakes.

Here is my recipe:


 Ingredients
  • 100g Flour
  • 300ml Semi-skimmed Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Pinch of Salt
  • 25g Butter


Method

1. Pour flour into a large mixing bowl and add the salt


2. Make a "well" in the centre of the mix and crack the eggs into it


3. Add 100ml of milk and whisk until firm


4. Slowly whisk in the remaining milk


5. Melt the butter in a pan and pour into pancake mix

 

6. Put the pancake mix in the fridge to chill for half an hour

7. Fry and serve. 


They were a big hit in our house!
 


The slick and smart compact scale has a stainless steel load plate, large and clear backlit display and unit switching between weight and volume (both metric and imperial). The scale has a resolution of 5Kg x 0.5g which is perfectly adequate for cooking. I was very impressed with it, particularly when I used it to measure out the milk; it perfectly matched the guide on my measuring jug.

I was very impressed with the large professional spec whisk (7.5cm diameter balloon), it felt very nice to use and is solidly build compared to others that I have used. 

The dual ended, non stick and heat proof spatulas worked well for making the mix, but I found them a little too chunky for flipping the pancakes; I think they are better suited to baking.

Both the Whisk and Spatulas are dishwasher safe, which is an absolute must in our household! 

The precision range of kitchenware can be purchased from various retailers including www.selfridges.com and www.amazon.co.uk.

Overall I was very impressed with the range of cookware.
