A Treat for Pancake Day

With Pancake Day on the way,  I thought today's blog post would be a great way of sharing a little cheeky pancake recipe that combines some great flavours, that would be perfect for creating on Pancake Day as well as those cheat weekend breakfasts! Pancakes can sometimes be seen as quite an unhealthy food, but throw on top some fruit and yoghurt, and its a win win situation..... right?!?! From sweet to savoury fillings, a pancake is such a versatile snack that can really have literally any toppings and still be delicious!

I also wrote a blog post about my very own Tropical Banana Pancakes, which may be for you if you're wanting to be that extra bit healthy! Carry on reading to find out what ingredients you will need and how I made these delicious pancakes! 

For the pancake mixture
110g  plain flour
pinch of salt
2 eggs
200ml milk
50g butter

To serve
handful of blueberries
melted dark chocolate
sprinkle of dessicated coconut
2 spoonfuls of plain yoghurt
drizzle of honey/syrup

Method
1. Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl.
2. Make a well in the centre of the flour and break the eggs into it, and begin to whisk.
3. Next gradually add small quantities of the milk and continue to whisk, until all the flour is incorporated.
4. Now melt the butter in a pan and spoon 2 tbsp of it into the batter and whisk it in, and place the remaining melted butter in a small bowl.
5. Now place the frying pan on a medium heat and add enough batter to evenly cover the base of the pan. (around 2tbsp)
6. Let the pancake cook, and once you are able to move the pancake in the pan, its ready to be flipped! (the most fun part)
7. Then once flipped, and the other side is fully cooked, then simply slide it out of the pan onto a plate, and add on all your delicious toppings. I opted for blueberries, yoghurt, honey, coconut and melted chocolate. YUM!

What are you favourite pancake toppings? Has this post given you the urge to cook up some delicious pancakes?
