Just a quick blog post to share my favourite pancakes recipe as I really wanted to get this out there, but left it a bit late! And I’m far too eager to wait an entire year till we see pancake day again! Plus they’re seriously unhealthy pancakes, which I consider quite fun!
I’m using my dearest mum’s classic pancake recipe for standard thin pancakes. It makes them all wrappy and great for what I want them for – to wrap around a whole banana and keep in all the delicious goo that I’m adding. My mum always made thin pancakes – the type you have with lemon and a sprinkle of sugar, and other polite ingredients like that.
I did also try some other pancake variations, some of which were great. But as mentioned earlier – this is a little somewhat of a rush post, so I’ve not had time to refine them and get them blog-ready. The rum and raisin scotch pancakes were a bit weird, but not unpleasant. White chocolate chip pancakes are always a treat. And the white chocolate chip and raisin were excellent! But unfortunately I think that will need to be waiting in the wings for 2017 🙁
So why such a rush? Well… I was meant to be hitting the diet hard from today, but crumbled at the last minute. Oops… I did go for a 6km jog in the wind and rain though, so I have achieved at least a little! Just a shame I paired it up with the worlds worst, seriously unhealthy pancakes! But I won’t tell if you don’t…
This recipe comes with a disclaimer: these really are seriously unhealthy pancakes and may even be a little sickly in the wrong hands! But if you have as sweet a tooth as me, it feeds the devil inside you!
Seriously Unhealthy Pancakes
- 2 large eggs
- 50 g milk
- 40 g flour
- Dash water
- 1 tsp oil
- Nutella/chocolate spread
- Golden syrup
- Hundreds and thousands
- Whisk together the eggs, milk, and water. Slowly add in the flower to form a runny batter
- Set a frying pan over a high heat and add the oil
- When hot, pour in enough batter to make a very thin coating on the pan
- Cook until just starting to brown - about 1 minute
- Flip acrobatically to cook the other side, or turn sensibly and safely
- Cook for a further 30 seconds - 1 minute until just browning
- Transfer to a plate, and add the remaining ingredients in the order stated, wrapping the banana up in everything at the end
Tip: no measurements are given for the Nutella, golden syrup, or sprinkles. Add to your own preference.
