Pancake Mix Two Ways
1. Traditional Pancake Mix - Mix 100g Plain Flour, 2 x Eggs, 300ml Milk and a pinch of salt.
2. Healthy Pancake Mix - Using 200ml milk (can be dairy, almond or soya - whichever you prefer), 1x Banana (the riper the better), 1/2 tsp Baking Powder, 2 tbsp Flour (Gluten Free if preferred) and 100g Oats! (recipe via @justtheaverageman)
No.1. Mocha Pancakes
Guaranteed to wake you up in the morning mix instant coffee powder, melted chocolate, sugar and butter in a blender and layer each pancake with a generous serve of the mixture. The complete opposite of healthy, these Mocha Pancakes are devilishly good!
No.2. Pizza Topping Pancakes
Pizza for breakfast is a naughty and usually hungover indulgent treat. To prepare your topping spread tomato puree and then layer mozzarella slices on top. Then go CRAZY with pizza toppings such as pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, capers, pineapple - the wilder the better!
No.3. A Halloumi Extravaganza
Halloumi, chorizo, garlic mayo and spinach ... need we say anymore?!
No.4. Go Savory With A Twist
Butternut Squash and Blue Cheese – unusual, but seriously good!
No.5. Cinnamon Roll Pancakes
These pancakes are UNREAL. Mix cream, maple syrup, cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and serve a generous dollop on your pancake stack.
No.6. You'll Either Love It Or You'll Hate It
Cheese and marmite - is there really a better pairing than that?!
No.7. Sexy Combo
Melt dark chocolate and sprinkle chilli on top for a hot and spicy effect!
No.8. One for the Vegans.
Prepare the pancakes with your favourite nut milk, banana and flour and then go crazy with maple syrup, banana and kiwi – YUMMY!
No.9. Hummous Lovers Delight
Hummous, Beetroot and Watercress = Sublime!
No.10. Spicy Fajita Pancakes
Love a fajita?! Lightly fry onions, garlic, chillis, chickpeas, cauliflower and spinach. Once cooked place the ingredients in the centre of the pancake and then wrap as you would a normal fajita. To finish dollop natural yoghurt and coriander on top for an oh so delicious dish!
