Easter Sunday lovin’ – easy pancake recipe

SONY DSCSunday is my favorite day of the week! Not only because I get to sleep in until I can’t sleep no more – but also because it is the day of the week my husband and I take time to prepare a brunch-like breakfast!

I love the slow-pace, musik filled rooms and cozy stay-at-home moments we cherish so much on sundays.

What do you like to do most on a sunday morning? My favorite is making american style pancakes. Yes even for Easter!

I thought I’d share my favorite pancake recipe for normal and chocolate-chip-buckwheat pancakes.Spring pancakes

 Ingredients:

– 1/2 to 3/4 cups of milk (about 120ml)
– 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of vegetable oil (about 25 ml)
– 1 egg
– 1 cup of white flour (140g)    or
– 1/2 cup of buckwheat (70g) and 1/2 cup of white flour (70g)
– 2 teaspoons of baking powder (10g)
– 2 tablespoons of sugar (30g)
– 1/2 teaspoon of salt (2pinches)

How to:

– Beat the milk, oil and egg lightly in a mixing bowl.DSC02257
– Mix the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt separately
– then add the mixture bit by bit to the liquids by stirring just enough to dampen the flour. Do not over mix!
– If wanted, add some chocolate chips to the batter.

Pre-heat a pan and add half butter half vegetable oil to bake the pancakes. Make sure the pan is hot before pouring in the batter. I like to check by sprinkling some drops of water on the pan. If they crackle it’s hot enough!

Bake light brown on both sides, whithout turning them more than once.

Serve with a piece of butter and maple sirup!

Enjoy your Easter Sunday lazy ones – have a happy one and don’t forget: life is a journey!
