Recipe: Pancakes

Mmmh pancakes! I don't think I know a single person who doesn't like them. Pancakes are super quick and easy to make, they taste delicious and you can jazz them up by adding small apple pieces or nuts to the batter, spreading nutella or jam on them, or how about some berries and vanilla ice cream? There are so many different ways of enjoying your pancakes, and I really fancied some nutella pancakes this morning. Keep reading to find out how I make them...


 For three pancakes you will need:
  • 60g plain flour
  • 25g caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 small egg
  • milk
  • oil or (unsalted) butter for frying
Depending on how many pancakes you want to make, you can simply double/triple/etc the recipe :)
Like I said above, these pancakes are incredibly easy and quick to make. First of all, mix the sugar and egg in a mixing bowl, add the flour and baking powder and then the milk - add a little at a time until the consistency is right. Your batter is perfect when it can easily be poured without being too runny - aim for a smoothie-like consistency! Let a frying pan heat up, add a little oil or butter and then fry your pancakes on medium heat, flip them over every now and then until they are golden brown on both sides. Done! :)
All you need to do now is enjoy your yummy pancakes - I love spreading on lots of nutella and then rolling them up.. mmhh!
