Happy April everyone 🙂
I love Spring so much and get super excited each year. Spring brings cutie lambs, vibrant daffodils and some beautiful sunshine. Ok, it may not be the hottest but it’s still nice to wake up and walk to work in the sun. I swear London looks ten times better with a dash of sunlight! Before moving to London, and a mini stop in Manchester for 6 months, I lived in South Wales. It’s so beautiful there I still don’t know why we ever left. Right now, the lambs are springing up everywhere and I would happily be feeding those little babies on the farm.
Anyway, back to delicious pancakes! My friends and family are well aware of my epic pancakes and I never miss an opportunity to whip up a batch. A few years back, Jonathan and I decided to go added sugar free and theses were our treat dessert. You can make them as healthy or as naughty as you want. This recipe has definitely done the rounds and originally I think it started with Jamie Oliver. Check out below how to make these yummy pancakes 🙂
Start by separating the eggs into 2 bowls. Whip the egg whites with 2 pinches of salt until the form stiff peaks. Pop this bowl to one side. To the bowl with the egg yolks, add the plain flour, baking powder and milk. Mix all together until you have a silky mixture. Now, slowly fold in the fluffy egg whites bit by bit. Don’t rush! You want to keep as much of the air in the mixture as possible otherwise you’ll have flat pancakes.
Get a non-stick pan and set the temperature to medium. I usually wipe the pan with some sunflower oil on a kitchen towel. Spoon the mixture into the pan an wait until the air bubbles start to pop on top. This means it is ready to flip over. Cook for around 1-2 mins on each side depending on how big you make the pancakes.
Now you should have a stack of fluffy pancakes ready for any kind of topping. I went for natural greek yoghurt, mixed fruits and topped with some agave. Delicious! I picked a cranberry and echinacea herbal tea to go with this. We also like swirling strawberry jam with greek yoghurt as a naughty treat!
