After getting my Facebook Page sorted and Instagram account linked to this website, I am feeling confident about posting more recipes.
Jamie Oliver posted a pancake video on Instagram which only requires 3 ingredients and I was longing to give it a try. This was my First pancake attempt ever! I jazzed it up with a layer of Nutella, strawberries drizzled in honey, a lick of icing sugar and a dash of cream… It was F A B U L O U S!
- 125 grams flour
- 3 x eggs
- 250 ml milk
Mix until smooth, and voila! You have pancake batter! I used a ladle to pour the batter into a buttered pan on a medium to high heat. Tilt the pan to allow the mixture to spread out and allow it to cook – about 3 minutes if not less. Once the underside is golden you can then flip it and cook for another minute, once done remove from the pan and set aside.
And so you continue ladle after ladle…
A pancake can be a base for anything; savoury or sweet or even stacked high and dressed as a cake. Let me know how you like yours in the comments below 🙂
A chocolate at ours lasts five minutes and if I’m not quick enough I’ll get none. Sunday past I decided to make a big batch of chocolate brownies with the hopes of it lasting the week to fulfill our chocolate cravings instead of buying them all the time. I couldn’t have been more WRONG! It’s Tuesday today and I managed to bring the last piece with me to work. Luckily I could share some with friends who came to visit over these 3 days.
The recipe is real easy and I made sure to use good quality chocolate for extra indulgence.
Here goes the recipe:
- 1 cup butter
- 1 slab Lindt chocolate – I used 70% cocoa
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/3 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips – I used the milk chocolate chips from Woolworths (BEST)
- 1 can Nestle caramel treat
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
Grease your baking tin with butter or cooking spray.
Chop the chocolate slab into bits.
Melt the butter in the microwave and add the chocolate bits stirring continuously for it to melt and combine. Set aside to cool slightly.
Stir the sugar and eggs into the chocolate/butter mixture. Mix in the flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Add in the chocolate chips.
Once the mixture is combined, pour into your greased baking tin and bake for about 30 – 35 mins. Use a toothpick to check if it’s ready, it should come out clean-ish. (I’ll take a pic next time)
Allow it to cool completely and then spread the caramel on top. I added some coarse salt on top of some of the slices for a salted caramel option – real good!
