My nearly 5 year old has not been well lately, bad case of mosquito bites getting infected then resulting in a severe infection of some kind.
So to fulfill my job as a good mum...apart from a stressed helpless mum, I have been making pancakes as a special treat.
These are fairly easy to make but you do need a mixer or some good whisking but they only have honey as the sweetener so a good one for little people as a school snack.
I like to make them small, kid's palm size and they definitely disappear pretty quickly!
(makes enough for 3-4 people)
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup buttermilk *
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- a generous tablespoon of honey
- 200g plain flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- separate eggs and place egg yolks, buttermilk, honey and vegetable oil in a bowl and mix until pale and creamy
- whisk egg whites until soft peaks form, set aside
- sift flour and baking powder into egg yolk mixture, mix until well combined and no lumps
- gently fold in egg whites
- heat a non-stick fry pan with some spray oil, on low heat and spoon a large tablespoonful of the mixture and cook for about a minute or until bubbles appear on the surface then flip and cook for another 1-2 minutes
- serve with a honey butter, which is just some softened butter whisked with a couple of teaspoons of honey **
Hope you are having a happy week, good luck to all the school newbies, I am a little bit teary thinking about my nearly 5 year old off to prep on Monday.
Hugs to you mammas ♥
