A satisfying breakfast – fresh, fruity, special. American pancakes with peaches and Greek yogurt. American pancakes can be as stodgy or as light as you wish – the last time I featured them they were more heavy, with dark chocolate and served with banana.
Simple American Pancakes(Serves 1 – makes 3 pancakes)
50g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp caster sugar
Toppings of choice – peaches, Greek yogurt, maple syrup
Sieve the flour into a small mixing bowl. Add the baking powder and caster sugar. Pour in the milk and whisk until the batter is smooth with no flour-lumps. In a hot frying pan, dab 3 dots of butter. Melt and swirl around the pan. Spoon the batter into the pan to make 3 pancakes. Cover with a lid on a low-moderate heat. Cook for approx 1 minute. Tiny holes will appear in the batter and the very edges will start to look a little denser. At this stage, flip the pancakes and cook for 1 minute. Serve, add toppings and enjoy!
I used tinned peaches – no shame in those. I also drizzled a little maple syrup over for sweetness. This pancake mix is so easy. I don’t know if it’s traditional, but I do know that it’s easy to make when the cupboards are nearly bare. No eggs required 🙂 The Greek yogurt makes the plate seem decadent. For true decadence, have peaches and cream instead. I’m not keen on cream…
What is your decadence?
