Oh I do love me some pancakes once in a while… Oh boy and I do believe this pancake Tuesday we have come to the conclusion that Fil has found her forte haha I made some gorgeous pancakes.
We used a very simple recipe I found online. I think it was a Jamie Oliver one but I am not a 100% sure. Maybe all of them are simple but this one was:
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 egg.
- pinch of salt.
And then all I did was mix these up and whisk it with just a normal hand whisk. You can use the electric ones but I didn’t and the pancakes were yummie.
These make more traditional american ‘breakfast’ style pancakes rather than my normal french thin crepes but honestly I started liking these more (for the past few days I made some everyday because they are so so simple).
You can do so many different toppings and flavours!! The ones I used were:
- chocolate chip
- lemon juice
I made the big batch and the took portions of it into another bowl and mashed bananas in one, added coconut to another etc. I really enjoyed adding the coconut and chocolate chip to the batter then topping it with strawberries and cream. YUMMIE..
Honestly you can make ‘pancakes’ from anything. I’m going to substitute the flour with other things the next time we make some as I want to make them as healthy as possible. There are a few ideas I read about and just thought about, such as using mashed bananas as a base with an egg and some milk, using oats instead of flour, using a protein powder instead of the flour is something I may try as well for an ‘after workout’ meal. Also I have read that if you mix oats (simple porridge ones) with some Greek yoghurt and leave it in the fridge over night then add the egg in the morning and fry it, it also makes lovely breaksfast which sounds super yummie to me and filling. I love porridge for breakfast with cinnamon and apples so I will certainly try the oat pancakes.
Please scroll down and look at my instagram pictures on the left side of this page to see my creations. I was rather impressed with the outcome 🙂
Until next year, (who am I kidding??I’m eating some coconut pancakes now.as I type.. ❤ )
