Lazy Sunday Mornings, where the whole world is open to possibilities, I always used to love to get up and make Pancakes, when the kids were little. Fresh squeezed orange juice and pancakes, sometimes, blueberry or banana or even chocolate chip, drizzled with maple syrup or good old fashioned honey and some lovely fresh fruit, served in Summer out on the back deck in the early morning sun, or in Winter in the kitchen where it was nice and warm and smelled like delicious food…ahhh memories!
Sometimes it truly is the simple things in life that can bring such joy, simple times with family enjoying a meal, or a cosy couples breakfast in bed, just add freshly brewed coffee.
- 1 egg (or egg substitute)
- 1 1/4 Cups plain flour
- 30 grams melted butter
- pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cups of milk
- Oil for frying (peanut or sunflower oil)
Put flour and salt in a bowl break in an egg (or add substitute) and add a little of the milk, beat to a smooth paste and then pour in the rest of the milk and melted butter. Beat well for a smooth creamy batter. Heat pan and brush inside with a little oil.
Pour in mixture, I like to dip in a measuring cup (1 cup) and perhaps half fill and pour into pan. Once it starts to bubble, flip and cook the other side.
You can serve anyway you like, but have your tried honey and fresh berries? Or what about lemon juice and sprinkled sugar? Sure you can stick with good old fashioned maple syrup, but sometimes it’s nice to change things up. You can also add chocolate chips to batter and make choc chip pancakes too.
