Poor Knights

Here in Sweden these almost pancake dipped pieces of bread use to be made by the poor, out of their old and stale bread. There by the name "Fattiga Riddare", or "Poor Knights".. Now it can be served as a nice breakfast, brunch or dessert, not only for the poor.

Poor Knights
You will need:
3 slices of White Bread, 1dl (1/3cup) of Plain Flour, 1.5-2dl (2/3-3/4cup) Dairy Free Milk, 1tsp Baking Powder, 1pinch of Salt, 1tsp Vanilla Sugar or Vanilla Essence and 1tbs Sugar.

  • Cut the crust of your square pieces of bread, then cut them in half, into triangles.
  • Whisk all the ingredients together for the batter, starting with the dry, then adding the wet ingredients. Whisk until smooth and lump free. It should be runny but yet thicker than water.
  • In a non stick pan, melt margarine. When the margarine is melted, dip your bread in the thick liquid and then gently fry them in your pan until light golden. Fry them on a medium heat, if they get fried in a pan that is too hot, they will get to dark and still not be cooked through in the middle.
  • Serve your Poor Knights with light syrup and sugar. Or why not fresh berries. (I personally prefer the caramel taste of the light syrup and sugar.)

Brands I recommend in this blog are:
  • Dansukker, Light Syrup, Vanilla Sugar and Baking Powder
  • Alpro, Soy Milk
