Pancakes

I love Saturday mornings and long breakfasts. This week I decided to go with a sweet breakfast and cook some pancakes!

Besides my traditional pancakes, I also decided to try and cook some American style pancakes with blueberries. Quite nice but I still prefer the thinner ones with a nice topping. Here are both recipes.

 

Pancakes (serves 4)

  • 250 g of flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 dl of milk
  • 1 tbsp of sugar
  • 70 g of butter
  • butter
  1. In a bowl mix the flour, the eggs, the milk and the sugar.
  2. Melt the butter and add it to the mixture.
  3. If needed, use a food processor to make sure the dough is smooth.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan and reduce the fire to low. Grease the frying pan with some butter.
  5. Pour a small portion of dough on the frying pan until you reach the pancake size you want. I usually make two at the same time.
  6. Let the pancake cook until you star seeing small holes n top of the pancake. Turn the pancake and let it cook on the other side. When both sides are golden the pancake is ready to serve. IMG_4022
  7. Repeat until you run out of dough.
  8. Serve with cream, strawberries, banana, chocolate, icing sugar, cinnamon, maple syrup, golden syrup, or any other ingredients you may like.IMG_4027

 

Blueberry American Pancakes (serves 4)

  • 3 eggs
  • 120 g of flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 150 g of milk
  • 2 tbsp of sugar
  • 100 g of blueberries (or raspberries)
  • butter
  • icing sugar
  1. In a bowl mix the egg yolks, the flour, the baking powder, the milk and the 2 tbsp of sugar. Mix well and, if needed, use a food processor to make sure the dough is smooth.
  2. In another bowl whisk the egg whites until they get thick and don’t fall from the bowl when you turn it.
  3. Mix the egg whites in the remaining dough.
  4. Add the blueberries.
  5. Heat a non-stick frying pan and reduce the fire to low. Grease the frying pan with some butter.
  6. Pour a small portion of dough on the frying pan until you reach the pancake size you want. I made one big pancake each time. IMG_4036
  7. Let the pancake cook until you star seeing small holes on top of the pancake. Turn the pancake and let it cook on the other side. When both sides are golden the pancake is ready to serve.
  8. Repeat until you run out of dough.
  9. Serve sprinkled with icing sugar.IMG_4049
