Swallow Magazine will be taking over the Hewett Street gallery to celebrate Cinco De Mayo (The Fifth Day of May) in a Mexican style brunch-up!
Swallow have enlisted the likes of London food collective family, who will be bringing their own personal touch to the magazine’s Huevos Rancheros recipe, a hugely celebrated breakfast taco dish, made from sautéed corn tortillas and eggs in a rich and spicy salsa of tomato, garlic and chili – on sale for £4. Also expect delicious creations from Protein’s resident coffee extrodinaires DunneFrankowski, who will be on hand, making drinks inspired by the flavours of Mexico City.
Make sure you arrive early to get a taste of what’s on offer.
Recipe for 12 pancakes:
150g plain flower (1 cup of al purpose flour)
1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder (not drinking chocolate)
1/2 bicarb (baking soda)
3 tablespoons sugar
Pinch of salt
250ml cup of buttermilk or runny plain yogurt (1 cup)
1 large egg
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla and red food colouring
What you need:
1 large bowl
1 measuring jig
1 metal skewer
1 griddle or non-stick frying pan (skillet)
In a large bowl, mix together 150g plain flour, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, half a teaspoon each of baking powder and bicarb (baking soda), 3 tablespoons sugar and a pinch of salt.
In a measuring jug, whisk together 250ml (1 cup) buttermilk or runny plain yogurt, 1 large egg, 1 tablespoon vegetable oil, 1 teaspoon vanilla and red food colouring. Add a small blob or 1 teaspoon with a metal skewer.
Whisk the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and set to one side while you get out a smooth griddle or non-stick frying pan (skillet) and warm it on the stove, wiping it with a little vegetable oil first. Add small ladlefuls of the batter onto the griddle and when bubbles start appearing on the surface, after a minute or two, it means the pancakes are ready to turn. They’ll probably need just under a minute on the second side, but it depends on how hot the griddle is, so check as you go.
Serve with fresh raspberries and a dollop or two of whipped cream on top of which you have grated some dark chocolate. Finally, add some chocolate syrup.
