Vanilla and Cinnamon Pancakes

By on November 23, 2013
 For breakfast I decided to try some home made cinnamon and vanilla pancakes (because I always buy the ready made ones). I usually like my pancakes with nutella chocolate spread or what my friends seem to find a weird combo..  maple syrup & bacon!  Which I think is one of the tastiest combos you’ll ever try. With the sweetness of the pancakes and maple syrup mixed with the contrasting salty/crispy taste of the bacon. It’s just yum!
All you need is:
–  2 1/2 Cups of All purpose Flour/Plain/Self raising!
–  1 Tsp of Baking soda
– 2 Tsbp of Sugar
– 150 ml of Milk ( I used Soya)
– 1 Tsp of Vanilla Extract
– 1 egg
– 1 Tsp Cinnamon
– 1 Tsbp Oil
– Pinch of Salt
– Maple Syrup
– Bacon

Add the Flour in to a bowl followed by your baking powder, sugar and salt (basically all the dry ingredients first). You’ll then need to add the egg, followed by your vanilla extract and  cinnamon. Start to mix, then gradually pour the milk in and continue to beat for next 30 – 40 seconds.
Heat the pan with oil then add mixture bit by bit! I usually pour the mixture into a jug beforehand so I have control over the amount I can pour into the pan.  When it’s all done add your toppings and then serve.. I like mine served with a cup of green tea 😉
What are your favourite toppings?

Strawberry Banana & Kiwi Smoothie

By on

I recently bought a smoothie maker which I loveee as I can now make yummy smoothies and shakes. It’s definitely a kitchen staple especially if you’re looking to make some yummy healthy drinks. I made my first smoothie (above) which is a Banana, Strawberry and Kiwi smoothie with a hint of mint ;). It’s pretty easy/simple to make, all you need is: Ice, Strawberry’s, Banana, Kiwi and Mint leaves. Followed by 250ml of Milk (or soya). If not you could use yoghurt, I used strawberry yoghurt for this recipe. Chuck them all into your smoothie blender. Depending on the fruit, like the banana and kiwi you’ll have to chop them up first beforehand. Blend together for about 30 – 45 seconds, pour into a cup, jug whatever you like to use get you mint leaves place them on top then Serve 🙂 
Enjoyy x
