Do you ever get bored of the same old thing for breakfast? Well I do too! I never used to be a big breakfast eater but now I have got older and got into a routine of being up early I have realised I cannot survive until dinner without food! Breakfast really is so important – without sounding boring. So after thinking about what else I could have I decided to try some American style pancakes with home and fruit (and make them dairy free of course).
So I thought I would share it with you guys to give you some inspiration for your breakfast!
- 135g plain flour
- 1tsp baking powder
- 2tbsp caster sugar
- 130ml soya milk
- 1 egg
- 2tbsp melted dairy free butter
- Honey/Golden syrup
- Fruit (raspberries, blackberries, strawberries)
How did I do it?
- Sift the flour, baking powder and caster sugar into one bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, lightly whisk together the egg and milk. Then whisk in the melted butter. I melt it in the microwave and you literally only need to do it for about 10 seconds, keep your eye on it and do it in short bursts.
3. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and with a fork, mix them together until you get a smooth batter. The lumps will go as you stir more and the mixture will seem quite thick but this is how it is supposed to be. Pop it to one side and let it stand for a few minutes.
4. Heat a non stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a small knob of butter. Once this is melted add a ladle of the mixture into the pan. I do it slowly and then use the back of the spoon in circular motions to make sure the shape is rounded and it is evenly spread. You want them to be quite thick because this is the style of the pancakes.
5. Wait until the top of the pancake starts to bubble on the top and then use a spatula to flip it over. Leave it for another few minutes and then slip again to check that both sides are cooked. You want both sides to be golden brown and have risen.
6. Repeat this until all the batter is used up. Just make sure you keep the butter in the pan topped up too so they don’t stick. You can keep them warm in a low heated oven but they taste better fresh in my opinion. They’ll stay warm while you cook the others anyway.
7. As for the topping this is kind of entirely down to your own personal preference and what you like. Personally I went for honey, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries and it was deeelicious!
So another baking recipe down and I hope you enjoyed it. I’ve tried to make useful steps again but I think it is quite a simple recipe and considering I have only made these once I was quite impressed with the outcome. What sort of different things do you have for breakfast that I might like to try?
