Trouble with a frying pan
... or if you are my kids then PANCAKE DAY!
For years i used to have a really old battered frying pan that made the nicest pancakes. They never stuck to the bottom, they were always crispy at the edges and they were always just a that nice `bubbly` golden brown when you got them out of the pan.
The trouble started 18 months ago when we fitted our all new spangly kitchen. Graham talked me into buying an electric induction hob and i have to admit it looks just the job. Black, shiny and with touch controls it fits really well with my very modern kitchen (although actually cooking on it is a different story for another day!).
Well being an induction hob i had to buy a whole new set of steel based pans to go with it (otherwise it doesnt actually heat up) so out into the bin went my tatty old frying pan and in came a lovely new sleek silver one, super non-stick.
The problem is that this super new frying pan just cant manage pancakes. You pour in the batter, it looks like it is cooking nicely and then you flip the pancake (which is a problem in itself seeing as they pan weighs an absolute tonne!) and you realise that rather than a nicely patterned golden colour you have ended up with something that more resembles a scotch pancake??!!! I have an incline that this is something to do with the super-dooper non-stick surface but that doesnt really help. I have three children all waiting, not very patiently, for pancakes and it is just not happening.
Maybe i could persuade them that it is really `drop scone` day?!
