They say it'll be a yummy one cos' pancakes love Nutella!

How excited are you for Pancake Day on Tuesday?! I loooove making pancakes, there's nothing nicer than a fresh home made pancake with some Nutella so you can imagine I will most certainly be going all out on Tuesday yummm!

I much prefer the American style pancake to crepes, they're a bit more filling and look a bit more substantial to eat especially when they are stacked up! So this recipe will be for the American style ones as pictured which is really easy to make. Keep on reading to find out how to make them....

You Will Need 3 Large Eggs
115g Plain Flour
1 heaped tsp of Baking Powder
140 ml Milk
1 tsp Vanilla extract

To Make

1. Separate eggs putting the egg whites into a mixing bowl and the yolks into another bowl

2. In your mixer whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks basically until it goes white frothy and you can turn the bowl upside down without them spilling out

3. In your bowl with the egg yolks add the plain flour, baking powder, milk and vanilla extract and mix together until it forms into a batter.

4. Now fold in your egg whites to the batter mixture, be careful not to mix it through but fold in to keep the air in the mixture.

5. Heat a non stick pan on a low-medium heat and pour the batter in, I use a ladel to do this. They will need aprox 2 mins on each side. you know when it is ready to turn over as the batter will start to bubble slightly, this means its cooked and ready to turn

6. Keep doing this until the mixture is finished, this will make around 6-8 pancakes.

Enjoy with whichever topping you choose!

  2. I love american pancakes - me and my BF are always making them! Normally we go for nutella as a topping but went a bit healthy today and opted for yoghurt and fruit instead!xx
