Easy Peasy Pancakes

By PaisleyJade - Monday, October 26, 2009

These are the easiest pancakes to whip up and make (thanks to Jamie Oliver for the simple recipe!)... and were just perfect for me this weekend as most of our family has been unwell in the last week, and I got hit with it on Fri/Sat and didn't really have the energy to cook much (hubby was away at our annual youth camp).

I decided pancakes were a semi-healthy meal, and had my favourite topping - lemon juice with a sprinkling of sugar and chopped bananas. I left the boys to make their own toppings for their pancakes, only to discover (health freaks avert your eyes here) chocolate chip and icing sugar pancakes with just a dash of lemon juice. Hmmmm - oh well.

Easy Peasy Pancakes

1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 egg

Whisk the above ingredients together and cook large spoonfuls in a hot (oiled or buttered) frying pan until light brown and bubbles appear on surface, then flip and brown the other side.

Store in folds of a clean tea towel until all of the batter is cooked and then serve with your favourite toppings.

The above makes about 4-5 pancakes, so double/triple etc. for larger amounts.

I am hoping to train Master 10 to make these by himself so he can surprise me with a delicious breakfast in bed one morning (not saying that I don't love his cold floppy toast though!).

What are your favourite pancake toppings??
