I don’t know about you guys but I’m a huge fan of breakfast. And hello, what’s better than pancakes! This time we actually ate these as dinner but who cares. All day breakfast is a thing, right?
Pancakes is one of the most versatile breakfast dishes I know. You can make plain pancakes, sweet pancakes, savoury pancakes, sweet and savoury together… I’ll include our recipe down below together with some great variations.
I’ve been craving them for a while now, and when my friend came over for dinner we decided to go for an easy meal. She immediately agreed, and so did my boyfriend so that was settled.
Of course we started very late (we were chat chat chatting all the time) and I tried to make a double batch in my Magimix food processor, which did not fit… Resulting in half of the batter spread around my kitchen counters. Oops. When it comes to my kitchen I’m kind of a neat freak: I want everything to be tidy! I had to start all over again after that little flood.
I like my pancakes firm but not too thick (like American pancakes) so I add a lot of milk. If you want the thicker ones just use less… As long as you use enough eggs it should be fine. (Unlike my experiences with the gnocchi last week, read about my struggles here) There are many variations possible, feel free to experiment and let me know what you found!
Pancakes for dinner
One batch should be enough for 2 people. It also depends a bit on the ingredients you add of course: adding cheese for example makes it more heavy so you won’t need as many pancakes as with plain ones.
- Milk, 500ml
- Flour, 250g
- Eggs, 3 medium
- Pinch of baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- Butter or oil
- First you'll want to mix together the flour and the baking powder.
- Slowly start adding the milk while mixing everything together.
- When the mixture is smooth, start adding the eggs.
- Lastly you can add the pinch of salt and make sure all the lumps in the batter are gone.
- Heat up a frying pan with some butter.
- Spread some of the mixture until the bottom of the pan is covered.
- Bake until golden brown on the bottom and dry on top, and flip.
- When both sides are nicely coloured you can take it out of the pan.
- Cheese & bacon
- Apple slices with cinnamon
- Banana slices
- Banana slices with nutella
- Pear slices
- Mushrooms, bell pepper, onion and cheese
- Walnuts and honey
