Garlic, Mushroom and Brie Pancakes

 

As the final recipe from our Sweet and Savoury pancake series, this one is most suited to those partial to a sophisticated and savoury pancake.

Garlic, Mushroom and Brie is a classic combination; the brie perfectly complimenting the woody mushrooms and the ever-flavoursome garlic. It’s more of a restaurant-worthy meal than a stack of pancakes, that’s for sure!

Cook these to impress dinner party guests, or if you’re ever in the mood for a highly decadent breakfast, just go for it and stack these babies up!

 

INGREDIENTS

 

  • 125g plain flour
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 375ml milk
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 25g butter
  • 500g mixed mushrooms, halved or sliced
  • 4 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp thyme leaves
  • 4 tbsp white wine (or water)
  • 150g brie, cut into small chunks
  • Salad leaves, to serve

 

METHOD

 

  1. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the middle of the flour and add eggs with half the milk.
  2. Whisk with a food mixer until the mixture is lump free. Add the remaining milk and oil and whisk again until smooth.
  3. Pour the batter into a jug. Leave to stand for 10 minutes.
  4. Heat a medium (20cm) frying pan over a medium heat and brush with oil.
  5. Pour in about 5 tbsps of pancake batter and swirl to coat the base.
  6. Cook for about a minute until deep golden, flip or turn and cook for a further 30 seconds.
  7. Repeat with remaining mixture to make 8 pancakes in total.
  8. For the filling, melt butter in a large frying pan or wok, add mushrooms and cook over a medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes until golden.
  9. Add onions, garlic and thyme and cook for a further 3 minutes.
  10. Pour in the wine or water and simmer for a minute before removing from the heat and stirring through the brie.
  11. Spoon the mixture into the pancakes and serve with salad leaves
