French term or phrase:en couronne
Poêle à frire dont le fond d'utilisation est de forme annulaire pour la préparation de crêpes en couronne
I've always been a good tosser ;-)
With large quantites of batter, the more you make the cheaper it becomes, after all it's only flour, eggs and milk and you can reduce the number of eggs and still produce pancakes, although of poorer quality and taste. All this talk has made me want to make 'crêpes', so that's what'll be on the menu tonight!
I think you may have mis-interpreted my comment; I just meant that putting a hole in the middle means you can sell a normal sized pancake that seems large, but in fact uses less batter; and believe me, this sort of thing is counted in a professional restaurant setting!
I'd love to know, though, just how successfully you can toss them!
I think this is another one of those solutions looking for a problem...
You'd never sell that in Brittany! A pancake is a pancake. The ingredients for the 'pâte' are probably cheaper than anything you'd wan't to stick in the middle. It sounds like something you'd want to give someone who doesn't really like pancakes! Having made countless 'crêpes' for schools and events and my children, I really can't imagine this thing! It sounds like something from over the water! (:-) )
If they're stacked then it sounds stodgy.
Tony your large-diameter pancake is an interesting idea, but it would also require the plate to fit it.
Of course I may be over-reacting, but as I said I'm intrigued.
Also a way of presenting them more interestingly, with your ball of ice-cream and other accompaniments in the centre.
It's always a bit hard to know what to do with a round pancake on a round plate; either you have to pile the other ingredients on top of it, or else use an oversized plate and put them alongside, or else fold it in half in the traditional (but boring!) way.
So this would give a novel way of being able to present them — and with my accountant's hat on, you can of course produce an impressively-large diameter pancake that uses only about ⅔ of the batter!
they're piled up into a stack, the centre of which is stuffed with some delicious filling...? Still not sure how this would be served up, but if the filling was sufficiently solid, it could be sliced downwards like a cake
