Electro Pancake

Tuesday 9th February

It’s a question that has puzzled humankind for centuries: does a pancake conduct electricity?

We ran a highly scientific and delicious experiment to find out:

 

Ingredients:

115g Plain Flour

140ml Milk

3 x eggs

1 tbsp baking powder

1x DIY Electro Dough Kit

 

MAKE THE PANCAKE BATTER

• Separate the eggs.

• Add the flour, baking powder and milk to the yolks and mix to a smooth thick batter. 

• Whisk the whites until they form stiff peaks.

• Fold into the batter.

• Heat a good non-stick pan on a medium heat. 

• Pour some of your batter into the pan and fry for a couple of minutes.

• Flip the pancake over. 

• Continue frying until both sides are golden.
