Pancakes…


I have never been a huge fan of pancakes or crepes, however over the years and taste buds changing I have become a huge lover of the American style pancakes, traditionally they are made from flour however I use oatbran as it is a flour consistency and therefore keeps these very light and fluffy and still remaining as close to the original as I can get.

The additional step of separating one of the eggs is key to making these light and fluffy, we really recommend not skipping this step, plus you get more out of your mixture, and who doesn’t prefer having a plate of 12 pancakes rather than just 6?

You can add any flavours and toppings as you like to your pancakes but below are a few we have done to get your taste buds tingling…


Some recommended items from our kitchen…

  • Silicone whisks in varying sizes, much prefer silicone to metal as it rusts.
  • Double sided dry and liquid measuring spoons for times when you need to measure both liquid and dry ingredients.
  • Mixing bowls are always wanted in this household and these stackable ones save so much space in our cupboards.
  • Highly recommend one of these 7 hole pans, can cook evenly sized pancakes in batches, had ours for many years now and love it, just don’t use frylight in it as it looses its non stick.

Don’t forget to take a pic of your dish and tag us over on Instagram or Facebook @hickmans_slim_kitchen we love to see the recreations.
