Everybody doesn’t love Raymond, they love Pancakes…
The whole point of a weekend is to take time to smell the roses, enjoy your coffee and indulge in a leisurely breakfast. Nothing says leisure and comfort like pancakes! This dish is so popular it even has a day commemorated in its honour as ‘Pancake Day’.
Enjoyed by everyone big and small, pancakes are a family friendly breakfast. Not to forget they are so easy to make. If you have young kids get them to sieve the flour, mix the batter or just simply watch you flip the pancakes.
You can jazz up the humble pancake with exotic spices from your pantry. One such spice is cinnamon, which is found in almost every pantry.Ingredients: 11 Cooking time: 5 minutes Serves: 4
- One cup self raising flour
- One cup plain flour
- Three cups of milk (I used skim milk)
- One egg
- One tablespoon melted butter
- One teaspoon cinnamon powder
- One teaspoon vanilla essence
- One teaspoon sugar
- Pinch of salt
- For topping chopped fresh fruits
- Honey or Maple syrup for drizzle
In a bowl sieve both types of flour. Then add the milk, egg, melted butter, cinnamon powder, vanilla essence, sugar and a pinch of salt and whisk the batter.
Spray the frying pan with some olive oil spray. Once the pan is hot, pour the pancake batter in the pan with a ladle. Once a few air bubbles pop and the pancake puffs up, flip it to the other side for a minute. The pancake should be golden brown in colour.
Make enough pancakes so you can stack them. Drizzle the pancakes with maple syrup or honey, top them up with fresh fruit and serve with a smile!
