Every Day Is Pancake Day



If you follow me on Instagram (if not why not?! You can do so here) you will probably have already gathered that I love (read: absolutely adore and couldn't live without) pancakes, whether they be crepes with lemon juice and sugar or fluffy American style with every topping imaginable. To celebrate pancake day, which lets face it, is just another day for me, I thought I'd write a little post featuring my favourite pancake recipe because after all, there isn't a day in the week which isn't perfect for pancakes.





Ingredients list:
- 3 large eggs
- 120g self-raising flour
- 140ml milk
- Butter (for frying)

You'll also need your choice of topping. Here I used raspberries, blueberries, strawberries and lots of golden syrup. I also love these with bacon, blueberries and maple syrup - my mouth is watering just thinking about those! 

1. Okay so first you'll need separate the egg white and the yolk. Mix the flour, the milk and the yolk together in a bowl until the mixture is quite thick and smooth with no lumps of flour. 

2. Take the egg whites and whisk them with an electric mixer (you can whisk by hand but it takes a lot of work) until the whites have tripled in size and are stiff and thick.

3. Fold the whites into the rest of the pancake batter.

4. Heat up some butter in the pan. I use my crepe maker to cook these but any usual frying pan is fine. (I'd definitely recommend investing in a crepe maker if you're a pancake lover like me. Best. Thing. Ever.) Put a small dollop in the pan once it's heated up (if you use a big enough pan you'll be able to do more than one at a time) and cook for a couple of minutes on each side until golden brown. 

5. If you really want to mix things up and get a bit fancy, once the pancake is cooked on one side, put some fruit (I like to use blueberries) into the uncooked side and flip. The blueberries will melt and turn into a kind of jam and it is delicious.

6. When your pancakes are done stack them and smother in maple syrup, golden syrup, nutella or whatever else you fancy. 

And ouilla, you have your perfect pancake brunch! Pancakes are pretty easy to make and most people already know how to make them but I still thought I'd share my little recipe with you. 

What are your favourite pancake toppings?
