There's no explanation required here really. Breakfast. Pancakes. Syrup. That's all. Oh and a friend who needed cheering up.
Many thanks to Selsley Foods Raspberry and Redcurrant Syrup and Winstones Ice Cream which were the best additions to these pancakes anyone could wish for.
The great thing is that they're two local producers from right here in the Cotswolds, and they're awesome.
This breakfast was pure champion.
Have a go yourself....
150g Flour (use same amount of Doves Gluten free flour in place if GF diet)
1 tsp baking powder
1tsp vanilla essence (if you have it)
Combine Flour, Baking Powder and Sugar in a bowl. Make a well int he middle, crack in the egg and pour in the milk. Whisk it all up. Add a teaspoon of vanilla extract if you have it.
Heat up a frying pan, pop in some of the butter, wait until it bubbles.
Add a ladle of the pancake batter, wait until you can see bubbles on the top, then flip. Add some more butter to the pan, and repeat until you run out of batter.
Pour syrup on top. Add some ice cream. Go crazy.
