So Today is the one day of the year the Diet is truely gone out the window.... I Love pancakes and have them through out the year, I would normally make them with Quinoa, Protein or Flourless Pancakes made with eggs and Bananas.

Heres my favourite recipe for making Pancakes.
Ill pop the Recipe for the Flourless Pancakes at the End.
Recipe makes around 12.

Pancake Ingredients....

  • 100g plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 300 ml milk
  • 1 tablsp. melted butter or sunflower oil

To Cook

Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl and make a well in the centre. Crack the egg into the well; add the melted butter or oil and half the milk. Gradually draw the flour into the liquid by stirring all the time with a wooden spoon until all the flour has been incorporated and then beat well to make a smooth batter. Stir in the remaining milk. Alternatively, beat all the ingredients together for 1 minute in a blender or food processor. Leave to stand for about 30 minutes, stir again before using.
To make the pancakes, heat a small heavy-based frying until very hot and then turn the heat down to medium. Lightly grease with oil and then ladle in enough batter to coat the base of the pan thinly (about 2 tablsp.), tilting the pan so the mixture spreads evenly. Cook over a moderate heat for 1-2 minutes or until the batter looks dry on the top and begins to brown at the edges. Flip the pancake over with a palette knife or fish slice and cook the second side.
Serving Suggestions
  • Butter
  • Caster sugar
  • Lemon juice
Turn onto a plate, smear with a little butter, sprinkle of sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice – enjoy!

Flourless Pancakes

2 Large over ripe Bananas
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
2 Large Eggs
  • 1. In a mixing bowl, crack in the eggs and add in baking powder. And whisk to combine.
  • 2. In another bowl add in 1 1/2 large bananas. Lightly mash with a potato masher or a fork, but not too much. There should be chunks of bananas to make fluffy pancakes. And use only ripe bananas.
  • 3. Pour wet mixture into mashed bananas and stir to combine.
  • 4. In a frying pan, cook mini pancakes over a medium low heat. 1 or 2 tablespoons of batter is enough for each mini pancake. When the baking powder is activated, flip it over and cook for about one minute more. Serve immediately when hot.
