Simple & Delicious – Weekend Pancakes

Weekend pancakes are what I look forward to every Saturday and Sunday morning because it makes the entire weekend more delicious and fun. It makes it an extra treat to wait to do these on the weekend because you can sleep in, wake up then dig into these fluffy treats that will leave your mouth watering! If you usually have cereal or toast for breakfast during the week, I find that it is extremely fun to mix it up with these on the weekends.

Ingredients

1) 1 cup of self raising flour

2) 1 large egg

3) 1 cup of water

4) 1 table spoon of sugar

5) 1 banana

6) 40 grams of chocolate (milk, white, dark, whatever you feel like)

7) 5 strawberries

8) maple syrup

9) jam

10) butter

11) icing sugar

First you must grease the pan with a bit of butter for less stick and better appearance. Then mix water and flour together in a bowl and whisk thoroughly. Then add your egg and gently whisk through until all clumps of flour have dissolved. Then add your finely sliced banana or strawberries into the batter and mix through. You are welcome to go ahead and add in your crushed chocolate or you can wait to use it as a garnish on top. Cook on low to medium heat on frying pan for about 2 minutes each side. When bubbles start to appear on entire top of pancake then you know it is ready to flip, make sure you always check. Add maple syrup, butter, fruit, chocolate and jam for a nice garnish on top, and then you have the best morning treat there is.

Carly’s Choice – Weekly Top 5 in Music

1) The 1975 – Chocolate
Chill, laid back and perfect for a summer’s day on the beach, The 1975 bring us a tasteful indie rock jam that I guarantee you will love.

2) Deadmau5 – Suckfest9001
What can I say, the Mau5 is good at what he does. Making music comes natural for this guy and Suckfest9001 is a grungy electronic tune that will get your head moving.

3) The Head and The Heart – Shake
This band continues to impress me. Ever since I head their first single “Lost In My Mind” I was completely in love with their music.

4) RAC Feat. Kele & MDNR – Let Go
Indie Electronic Music is popping up everywhere lately and it is only going to get bigger. Such a perfect mix of indie rock and dance music!

5) Of Monsters and Men – Dirty Paws
Peaceful, moving and full of beauty, Dirty Paws is one of the best tracks of 2013.
