American Style Pancakes Recipe🥞

With over two weeks to go until Pancake Tuesday (February 16th), I have decided to practice my pancake-making skills. I enjoyed these American Style pancakes for breakfast served with yoghurt and strawberries, however they can be served with whatever toppings you like. This is an easy recipe and it didn’t take long to make these yummy thick and fluffy pancakes.

You will need:
  • 125g/4oz Odlums Self Raising Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Shamrock Golden Caster Sugar (optional)
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 150ml/¼ pint Milk
  • Oil for frying

Sieve flour and salt into a bowl, stir in the sugar (if using)

Add the egg and beat while adding the milk. Mix until mixture becomes smooth.

Heat a little oil on a pan and drop spoonfuls of batter onto pan. When mixture is puffed and bubbling on top, turn and cook on other side.

Serve warm with your favourite toppings and enjoy🍓

DIY- Customise Converse👟

I have two pairs of Converse that are old and never wear anymore. I decided to customise them to improve how they looked and they turned out really well.⭐ There are different ways you can customise Converse shoes and here are just two ideas. The first method uses Acrylic paints to create a Galaxy affect and the second uses Sharpie markers to create a pretty floral design.

Converse shoes before customisation

1) Galaxy Converses

You will need:
  • Acrylic Paints
  • Paintbrushes
  • Paint Palettes
  • Sponge
  • Duct tape
  • Scissors
  • Converse shoes

  • Remove shoelaces from the Converse shoes
  • Cover the white rubber soles of the shoes and white logo with duct tape to prevent paint from getting on them
  • I cut the sponge into three parts to use for each colour of paint.
  • Pour paint into paint palettes. I used royal blue, light blue and lilac, however you can use whatever colours you want. You can mix different paints together to make different colours. Sponge the paint onto the canvas part of the shoe. Use a fine paintbrush to splash white acrylic paint onto the shoes to create a star-like affect. Leave the shoes overnight to dry. The next day, remove the duct tape and relace them.

2) Customise with Sharpies

You will need:
  • Sharpie markers
  • Converse shoes

You can draw any designs you like. I saw a floral design on Pinterest and thought it looked pretty cool. ⭐
