something familiar… and a very basic pancake recipe

Honey pancakes with fresh strawberries… ♥

It’s been awhile since I’ve spent time in the kitchen, apart from last week when I made Hollandaise sauce with poached eggs. (Maybe I should write about that too…) It’s been even longer since I’ve had pancakes, so I decided to make some! I usually use a buttermilk pancake mix but I was feeling “original” so I made this from scratch. The original recipe claims to yield FLUFFY pancakes, but mine were anything but fluffy. I still liked how they turned out though, quite like Robin’s german pancakes, just that I didn’t add any salt to mine. If you’ve tried the pancakes at Ikea, this one comes pretty close.

A very basic pancake recipe:

1 cup self-raising flour

1 cup milk

1 egg

 Don’t think I have to go into how to make them, right? I don’t know if it was my choice of flour that caused them to not be fluffy but I did follow the recipe,  I did add about two tablespoons of honey to the mix though, gives it a subtle taste of honey! Best enjoyed with tons of butter and soaked in pancake/maple syrup. Whip cream is optional but it is a very welcome addition, especially coupled with fresh strawberries. It’s a real treat! These pancakes keep well too, I kept about 4 of them and ate them two days later and they were still yummy after being warmed up.

Enjoy! :)
