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🍓

Below are some tips to help you make the perfect smoothie bowl✨


-To make a Smoothie Bowl thick:
  • Use just enough liquid to keep things moving in your blender when using frozen fruit.
  • Blend slowly.
  • Add a scoop of oats or chia seeds to thicken your smoothie.
  • Frozen banana or half an avocado makes a smoothie bowl thick and creamy when pureed rather than icy
-Frozen fruit
  • Make the base thick and cool.
  • Peel bananas and put them in a plastic bag before placing in the freezer the night before. Frozen bananas add a creamy texture to smoothie bowls.
-Chill your bowl before you start
  • Place the bowl in the freezer while preparing your ingredients to keep your smoothie bowl cooler for longer.
-Toppings
  • Toppings make your smoothie bowl fun and add texture and colour. There are lots of possible combinations.
  • Topping ideas: fruit, coconut flakes, desiccated coconut, granola, chia seeds, walnuts, flaked almonds, cacao nibs,drizzle of honey, nut butter, cinnamon

Mini pancakes Recipe🥞

This is a Tesco recipe and doesn’t take long to cook. Go wild with your favourite toppings 🍓🍐🍌🍯 I made this for brunch today. These pancakes make the perfect breakfast or after-dinner treat.

  • 150g self-raising flour
  • 1 egg
  • 250ml semi-skilled milk
  • oil for greasing
  • toppings of your choice (I chose Big Red Kitchen Butterscotch Sauce)

Put the flour into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the egg and about half of the milk.

Using a whisk, or wooden spoon, mix to a smooth, thick batter. You may need to add a little more milk if the batter is too thick to mix.

When the batter is smooth, gradually stir in the rest of the milk until it is well combined.

Add a small amount of oil to the frying pan; just enough to give a non-stick layer to the surface of the pan. Heat on high until the oil begins to smoke, then turn down the heat to medium.

Pour 15ml spoons of batter into the pan. This should make pancakes about 3cm in diameter.

Leave each pancake for about 30 seconds. Bubbles will appear on the surface and the mixture will start to set. Flip each pancake over using a palette knife or fish slice and leave for another 30 seconds.

I had 6 mini pancakes this morning for brunch with Butterscotch Sauce as the topping.
