Todays post was supposed to be about yesterdays breakfast which was Pain de Mie, but then Shrove Tuesday came along and messed that all up. Confused yet? Any hoooo, I was forced - forced I tell you, to make pancakes and eat them for you all in the name of Pancake Day. Don't ever say I don't to anything for you, mmmK?
NOTE: Pain de Mie recipe here
Blueberry Smoothie Pancakes
adapted from here
Makes 6 large pancakes
For the Pancakes:
1 ripe banana
170ml almond milk (or your favourite milk)
1 teaspoon vanilla
250g Atta flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Cooking spray, to grease the frying pan
Toasted and chopped pecans
Honey (I use orange blossom honey)
Put hlaf the blueberries, the peeled banana, milk, egg, vanilla, flour, baking powder, baking soda ad salt into a blender and blitz until smooth (it will be a groovy blue/grey colour). Fold the remaining blueberries into the batter.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium heat, spray with a thin film of cooking spray. Ladel the batter into the pan and cook for abouot 2 minutes, until bubbles start to appear on the surface and the underside is golden brown. Flip and cook on the other side for another 2 minutes, until golden brown and the pancake is cooked though. Continue to grease the pan between pancakes and cook until all the batter is used up.
Serve with a generous dollop of thick yoghurt, a sprinkling of ground cinnamon, a drizzle of honey and a scattering of toasted pecans.
