I know, I am a day late, but I was travelling all day yesterday and did not have time to rustle up a batch of pancakes whilst sitting on the train! However, if you still have some eggs and milk in your pantry that need using up before Lent, then why not make a batch of pancakes for Pancake Day + 1. Plus, I really want to show off my latest Oxo Good Grips toys…….a fabulous pancake batter kit for all avid batter makers the world over. My kit arrived a few days before Pancake Day and comprises: an OXO Good Grip Batter Bowl, an OXO Good Grips Silicone Flexible Pancake Turner and an OXO Good Grips Balloon Whisk

I was instantly captivated with my Silicone Flexible Pancake Turner; the extra wide turner was indeed a flipping marvellous flipper and turner! The OXO Good Grips Silicone Flexible Turners combine the strength of stainless steel with the advantages of silicone. The silicone outer layer, which is heat-resistant to 315ºC and safe for non-stick cookware, is bonded to a flexible stainless steel core for added stability. The Turners have thin, flexible edges that glide easily beneath all foods and are perfect for flipping fragile foods while keeping them intact. The Pancake Turner is generous in size and easily flips pancakes, burgers and more. All Silicone Flexible Turners have soft, comfortable, non-slip grips and are the perfect companions to non-stick cookware and bakeware. Verdict: A BRILLIANT tool and fabulous for turning pancakes without tearing! I will also use this when frying fish too. Easy to flip and turn and very ergonomic.  LOVED this and can see me using it many times.

My balloon whisk was also a very sturdy and an easy tool for beating my batter. The OXO Good Grips 11″ Balloon Whisk features polished stainless steel wires and a tear-drop shaped handle that fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. The balloon shape is perfect for whipping and aerating ingredients and the soft handle won’t slip out of your hand, even when wet. Beat eggs, stir batter, whip cream and stir sauces in comfort. I thought it was a very comfortable whisk and it beat my pancake batter in minutes. Verdict: A sturdy and comfortable whisk that aerated my batter and whisked it to perfection in minutes. I LOVED it!

Finally, the  OXO Good Grips Batter Bowl was brilliant! It did not move around the kitchen surface when I beat my batter and it also felt secure and sturdy, as well as having handy measurements printed on the inside of the bowl. (I made my first batch in the batter bowl and the forgot it was in the dishwasher, hence it not being in my photos for my second batch!) You just measure, add, mix and pour ingredients for pancakes, muffins, cakes and more, and the bright red, permanent measurement markings are easy to read, even with thick batters. A soft, comfortable grip cushions your hand while mixing and pouring. High side walls prevent splatter, even when used with an electric mixer, and a wide lip and pour spout allow for easy, drip-free pouring. The Batter Bowl has a generous capacity of 8 cups/2 litres and will be a favourite tool in my baking kitchen. Verdict: A large bowl with handy measurements, which felt stable and did not move when I was beating my batter. Is suitable for the dishwasher too, so very handy.

As I have been manically making marmalade lately, as you may remember here: The Marmalade Awards, Paddington Bear, Three Fruit Marmalade Recipe, I decided to make my pancakes with marmalade today! These pancakes are made with my standard batter mixture, recipe below, and then have a dollop of marmalade spread over them before folding into quarters and serving. More marmalade adorned the top of the pancakes and voila, a pancake treat fit for Paddington Bear! My husband wolfed at least four of these down and demanded more, hence two batches of pancake batter!

The flavour of this marmalade is a gentle balance of the three fruits, grapefruit, orange and lemons.

Ingredients

  • 1 grapefruit
  • 2 lemons
  • 1 sweet or Seville orange
  • 1.4kg granulated cane sugar
  • 1.75 litres water

Note

The flavour of this marmalade is a gentle balance of the three fruits, grapefruit, orange and lemons.

(Select a small grapefruit, and aim to get a total weight of grapefruit, orange and lemons of between 675 and 700g)

Directions

Step 1 The total weight of the fruit should be between 675g and 700g (1 1/2 lbs)
Step 2 Making Three Fruit Marmalade
Remove the juice from the fruit and pour it all into a large stainless steel lidded pan with the water. Scrape out the membranes and pips with a sharp knife. (I found this easiest to do after quartering the fruit)
Step 3 Making Three Fruit Marmalade
Finely chop the membranes, I used my Kenwood mixer. Put the chopped membranes and pips into a thin piece of muslin, tie it up with string, and add to the pan of juice and water, securing it to one of the pan handles.
Step 4 Making Three Fruit Marmalade
If you have not already quartered the citrus fruit shells, quarter them now. Turn them peel side down on to a chopping board and using a sharp serrated knife, slice the peel thinly, almost touching your fingers for a fine shred. Add the peel to the pan and leave overnight to soak.
Step 5 Making Three Fruit Marmalade
Next day, bring the lidded pan to the boil and then turn down the heat and simmer gently for two hours - the peel should be very tender.
Step 6 Making Three Fruit Marmalade
Warm the sugar in a low oven set at 140C/275F/Gas1. Remove the muslin bag and squeeze it over the pan through a sieve. Check the volume of the pan, it should have reduced by a third.
Step 7 Making Three Fruit Marmalade
Add the sugar and dissolve over a low heat. Place the jars in the oven. Bring the marmalade to a rolling boil and start to test after five minutes. Once setting point is reached, remove the pan from the heat, and allow to cool for about ten minutes.
Step 8 Making Three Fruit Marmalade
Remove any scum with a metal spoon by pushing it to the side and then removing it. Gently stir the marmalade to distribute the peel. Ladle the marmalade into a jug and pour in the warm jars using a jam funnel. Pour to the brim of the jars. Remove any stray scum with a teaspoon.
Step 9 Making Three Fruit Marmalade
Seal the jars with a new twist-top lid, or apply a waxed disc to the surface of the marmalade. When cold, cover with a cellophane top secured with a rubber band.

    Looks scrummy. I’ve just made lots of marmalade and blogged about all the things I’m looking forward to using it on/in but I didn’t think of pancakes! How silly of me considering it’s the day after. Great idea.

  2. says

    I really like the oxo good grips range. The batter bowl is really sturdy but it’s light enough to use easily when you want to pour something (I had a ceramic one before it and that was just too heavy). The whisks have a good feel in the hand, too. Anyway, love the idea of marmalade in pancakes. It’s got me reaching for ingredients to try some! :) x

  3. Jane Willis says

    Every year I say I’m going to start making pancakes on days other than Shrove Tuesday, and every year I never get round to it. But they’d make a wonderful weekend breakfast, thanks for the inpiration

  4. Fiona Matters says

    I’d never have thought of having marmalade with pancakes. What a good idea! I’ve had a request for really thin pancakes and yours look lovely. So some time when I’m not in a rush in the morning I’ll have to make them!

  5. Maya Russell says

    Never tried marmalade on pancakes. But I do like marmalade so it’s something to think of next time I do pancakes. Thanks.

  6. Lisa Williams says

  9. HelenD says

    I’ve made your three fruit marmalade and it was great!
    The only thing I ‘ve changed is that I replaced the grapefruit with bergamond . Great combination of fruit, too!
