One of our favorite things to do with our backyard hens eggs is to make good old fashioned pancakes. We do it at least once a week and I've had several requests via Twitter and Instagram (@mattallison) to share my recipe, so without further ado, here it is!
(Makes 10+ 8inch pancakes)
1 cup of cake flour
1 1/2 cups of milk
1/2 stick of melted butter
2 tbsp of castor sugar
1 tsp of salt
2 tsp of baking powder
Step 1: Combine all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and whisk them together.
Step 2: Place a non-stick frying pan on a medium high heat and once hot ladle in roughly 3 tbsp of batter and evenly spread it around the pan.
Step 3: Cook for about a minute, until you start to see little air bubbles and then flip it over for another minute.
Step 4: Place the pancakes on a plate and sprinkle with ground cinnamon, a tsp of brown sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice and then starting at one edge roll them up.
I love to serve mine with fresh fruit, usually a diced banana and a handful of fresh strawberries topped with a sprig of mint and garnished with icing sugar and drizzled in maple syrup.
You could also do a savory option by stuffing them with spinach and feta instead of the cinnamon, lemon juice and brown sugar and serve with a mushroom sauce.
