Stack 'em up | Pancakespiration

Tuesday, 9 February 2016


Woohoo! Its pancake day! This special little day is often forgotten about or pushed aside, but it is such fun - you can get creative in the kitchen and share a delicious hands-on treat with your loved ones!
Pancakes are so versatile, you can enjoy them sweet or savoury, stacked or short. Personally, I'll have 'em any way that they come, but I can never eat many, so it's important to make each one count!
Today I wanted to share some pancake recipe and presentation ideas to get you feeling creative (and hungry!)

AMERICAN PANCAKE BASIC RECIPE

I don't know about you, but I prefer a good American pancake, and even though you can buy them in-store it is much more fun to make your own - and they are so easy! This recipe will serve 4-6 and makes about 12 pancakes;

You'll need;
. 1 Tbsp baking powder
. Pinch Salt
. 1 Tsp White sugar
. 2 large eggs (beaten)
. 30g melted butter
. 300ml milk
. 225g plain flour

Let's make;
- Place the dry ingredients into a bowl and stir together.
- Then make a well in the dry mixture and pour on the wet ingredients. Combine well.
- Transfer the batter into a jug - it will be easier to pour onto the pan this way!
- Heat a smooth pan and add some butter, oil, or spray oil.
- Pour a round of batter onto the pan and cook for around 1 minute per side.
- Dress and serve!

CHOCOLATE HAZLENUT INDULGENCE




This is every chocolate lovers dream!

BIRTHDAY (PAN)CAKE




This is probably the one I'll be opting for as my birthday was yesterday, and, well, it would be rude not to celebrate properly!

Soft, fluffy pancakes layered with vanilla icing and finished with colourful sprinkles - you could even add a candle if you're feeling extra festive!

CARAMEL S'MORES STACKER




oozy caramel, sweet marshmallow, crispy wafer and decadent chocolate - this is an ultimate treat!

I hope you enjoyed my pancake-spiration! Whatever you indulge in today, enjoy it and be guilt-free!
