Everyday Pancakes

Pancakes are a firm favourite in our house. The boys love them, and Pete & I love them too! I love this pancake recipe because not only are the pancakes perfectly light, fluffy and soft - they are so easy to whip up you could have them everyday (although we tend to save them for the weekend!)

This is just the basic recipe, and I added some dark chocolate chips (chocolate is never a bad thing, eh?) but feel free to get creative, adding your favourite fruit, nuts - anything really!

Everyday Pancakes
Makes 6 large pancakes

1C plain flour
2tsp baking powder
1Tbsp sugar
1C almond or soy milk
1Tbsp vegetable oil
1tsp vanilla extract

1/4C dark chocolate chips (optional)

Place a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Prepare your batter by mixing the dry ingredients together. Add the wet ingredients (reserving the chocolate chips) and mix until smooth. Once the pan is very hot spray with cooking spray and pour 1/4c of batter at a time into the pan. Sprinkle with a few chocolate chips and cook until bubbles appear on the surface of the pancake and then use a spatula to flip the pancake over. Cook until risen and golden, around 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and continue until you've used all of your batter.

If you want to keep the pancakes warm while you make the rest pop them on a baking tray in the oven on its lowest setting. 

Serve with fruit, maple syrup or whatever you fancy.
