Take a look at some of our favourite ways to get your pancake fix without using a stove – perfect for Scout huts and could earn you some badges!
However, it’s not often you come across a fully functioning stove in a Scout hut, so we’ve come up with a few different ways that you can cook a pancake without the hob – some of which cover some badge work too!
This method of cooking is educational and delicious. As well as teaching your Scouts how heat rising cooks the food, and fire safety, you can also enjoy the end product!
Things you’ll need:
Using a traditional pancake recipe, you can use a campfire to cook your pancake.
Once a freshly lit fire has burnt down to its embers, you can then cook your pancake above the fire as you would at home on the stove.
But don’t use your nice pans, a cast iron one is probably best for this sort of outdoors cooking!
If you’re a lucky Group with a microwave, you can use this to your advantage.
With possibly the easiest way to make pancakes, ever… this is a definite winner when you have lots of mouths to feed on pancake day!
Ingredients (per person):
Obviously the easiest way to get your pancake fix on pancake day is to buy ready-made crepes or scotch pancakes from the supermarket – great for the younger ones!
You can either eat these cold or toast to heat and still have your favourite toppings.
