A favourite Sunday breakfast is pancakes in our house. Whilst Finn is more than happy with Nutella and fruit (bananas, berries etc) I like to do something a little more sophisticated for the grown-ups...
This week I combined two of my favourite flavours, apple and ginger. served with Greek Yogurt to cool down the ginger they were delicious.
For the apples,
Two apples, cored and chopped.
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp caster sugar
For the pancakes,
I make these so often it is done without scales & measures - it is mostly by eye.
4 tbsp flour
1 tsp baking powder
milk to mix
1. First make your mix. Put the flour and baking powder in a bowl. Making a well in the flour and break in the eggs. Mix together, it will form a sort of paste. Little by little add milk, mixing well to form a smooth batter. Add enough milk to make a batter that is the consistency of double cream.
2.Whilst the batter stands, chop the apples (I like to leave the skins on for the look and the nutrition) sauté them in the melted butter, ginger and sugar. it should take a few minutes only for the apples to soften. I like the fruit to have a bit of bite.
3. Now it is just a matter of cooking the pancakes - I use a hotplate - and then assembling the ingredients.
They are a wonderful way to start an autumnal Sunday. It is, of course, always good to have a pot of hot coffee on hand.
