Pancakes a la Jamie Oliver

What’s the best breakfast you can have on a lazy Sunday?

My vote goes for pancakes with red summer fruits and a wee bit of honey. My parents sent me some honey that they extracted from their beehives not long ago and on top of this, on Friday I bought some red summer berries , so the only things missing to pull together a great lazy sunday breakfast, were the pancakes.


While growing up, my mum was always making us some thin french-style pancakes, however lately I discovered those fluffy and thick american babies a la Jamie Oliver. On Sunday I decided to go for the latter, they seemed a bit more fulfilling and more proper for a lazy weekend.


pancakes

3 large eggs

115 g flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

140 ml milk

a pinch of salt

1 tablespoon sugar

vanilla

chocolate chips, strawberries or red currants

Start by separating the eggs. Beat the egg white until they form stiff peaks. Meanwhile mix well the egg yolks with the sugar, milk, flour, salt, vanilla and baking powder, until you obtain a smooth thick batter. Fold gently the egg whites into the batter.
Heat a non-stick pan on a medium heat. Add a drop of oil to the pan and then pour some of the batter into the pan. Fry for 2-3 minutes or until the pancakes look golden and firm. Sprinkle fruits or chocolate chips on the uncooked side, gently lower them into the batter with a spatula and flip the pancake over. Continue frying until both sides are golden.

  1. Greetings… thank you so much for submitting to erecipecards. I saw the listing needed a photo and was able to pull the top photo from your site. Hope that is OK, you are listed and all is well.

    Your photo was a little large, and possibly you had trouble since the auto photo editor takes a few seconds to load while working with large images. you will have better luck if you resize (I do mine at 500 pixels). Or, just be a little patient before hitting save. It will eventually appear.

    Hope this doesn’t discourage you, i love your site and hope we become a daily habit!

  2. Wonderful recipe – Thanks for sharing! The egg whites make the pancakes so fluffy! I didn’t think that would be enough sugar but boy was I wrong! They’re wonderfully balanced in flavour.
