kate5kiwis: café-style pancakes


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

café-style pancakes

(or how-to-make-a-sexy-café-style-brekkie-

usually i throw in a cup of porridge oats (fills up the natives) and omit the melted butter, but today i threw caution to the wind and actually followed (well i *tripled*)
this recipe (thanks again, sophie)

1 1/4 c plain flour
1/4 c sugar
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
whisk in with electric beater:
1 egg
3/4 c milk, soured with a squeeze of lemon juice
30 g butter, melted
melt knob of butter on hot flat griddle that i salvaged from mum's kitchen, cook four at a time, hurrying, because these little pancakes are gobbled as soon as they come out of the pan... oh, and remember to save *one* for self.

serve with lashings of natural yoghurt, heap with blueberries and drizzle with maple syrup. think of the recently-reappeared waistline and resist going back for seconds, lol.

We love pancakes here and my husband makes great ones. Sometimes he makes them with chocolate chips inside; not so great for the waistline though, huh?
