Hotcakes for breakfast

Oh boy am I a fantastic mother. Well according to our 4 overnight guests I am. I snuck out of bed early this morning (and it was very cold) and made a batch of

Thomas had asked if I would make pancakes for brekky as a special treat so I obliged. I set the table with plates, cutlery and an assortment of jams, honey, pancake syrup, whipped butter and put a platter of warm, fresh pancakes in the middle.

As James said “Mrs. A it looks just like in a restaurant”.

They didn’t last long; six hungry kids can sure devour pancakes.

If you’d like to try them, here’s the recipe:

1 cup SR flour
3/4cup water
2 heaped tablespoons milk powder
2 eggs, separated

Beat the flour, water, milk powder and egg yolks together. In a separate bowl beat the egg whites until stiff. Using a metal spoon fold the egg whites into the batter.

Heat fry pan or griddle until hot. Using a ½ cup measure pour batter onto lightly buttered pan or griddle. Cook until bubbles form and start to pop on the top of each pancake then turn. Cook for further minute. Place a clean tea towel on a cake rack and sit pancakes on tea towel until ready to eat.

This recipe makes about 8 medium pancakes.

For breakfast this morning I tripled the recipe and it made 25 medium sized pancakes.

Sadly there were no leftovers for the freezer.
