Pancake Day!

February 28, 2017

It's Shrove Tuesday which means one thing, pancake day! Shrove Tuesday is THE day to devour a disgusting amount of those fluffy things and experiment with toppings. 

Whether you've already had them for breakfast or you're waiting to have them later on as a snack, it is an unwritten rule to consume pancakes today. I made some deliciously fluffy ones for breakfast, here is my recipe:

- 1 and a half cups of plain flour
- 3 and a half teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 tablespoon of white sugar
- 1 and a quarter cups of milk
- 1 egg
- 4 tablespoons of melted unsalted butter

First sieve all your dry ingredients into a bowl. Then add your egg and milk and combine. Melt 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter in the microwave. Add to the mixture and mix well. Then use 1 tablespoon of the mixture per pancake and fry in a lightly buttered pan on a medium heat until both sides of the pancake are lightly browned.

Serve with whatever toppings you fancy. I personally used bananas, raspberries, strawberries and blueberries along with melted Jim Jams hazelnut chocolate spread which contains 83% less sugar than Nutella and almost tastes identical!

What toppings are your favourite on pancakes?
