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

75ml milk

1tsp butter

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?
