How To Make Pancakes – The Quick And Easy Way

My frying pan gets used at least every second day, pancakes on a Sunday are a regular treat, and I like to use it to add colour (and flavour) to meat before cooking in the oven. The beauty of this pancake recipe is that it doesn’t take long to put together, you don’t need to wait for the batter to get smooth, it contains very few ingredients, and it becomes a balanced meal once we have some fruit on the side. Mind you there’s nothing stopping you making this a savoury dish. I suppose we’ve become used to this as a sweet treat. The sweetness is all in the extras, not from the ingredients.

I’ve been asked a few times recently for instructions on how to make pancakes – the quick and easy way. Nothing too stressful, that requires very little skill in the kitchen.

To me, fast food is a meal that I can get to the table in less than 30 minutes. These pancakes start making their way to the table in the first 15 minutes of whipping up the batter, then it’s a rhythm of spooning, flipping, and serving to make sure that everybody is satisfied. The ingredients that I use are always in my store cupboard, so I always have a fast food option to cook. This is a budget recipe; the ingredients for these pancakes (that feed 5) come to just over 82c, which is a cost of just under 17c per portion; fruit and any other spreads/syrups are extra.*How To Make Pancakes - The Quick And Easy Way - Wholesome Ireland Read More

Alternative Breakfast

I’m still here, still sorting out some life laundry type stuff. The decluttering has escalated. I have turned off all push notifications on my phone. This means I don’t see if somebody has emailed me unless I have the phone in my hand. I don’t see a mention on any social media network.

It’s been really liberating!

I’m learning only to check my emails when I’m free. I’m focussing on my work; new projects, clients, and clearing the house of stuff that I don’t need. The 5-year-old goes back to school this week and I’m looking forward to getting back into a routine. Mind you I’m not looking forward to those walks in the rain that has descended for the week but I think the fresh air will do me the world of good. Read More

Lazy Porridge Pancakes

Are these lazy porridge pancakes the new way to eat your porridge? I’m not certain how new this concept is. I vividly remember the pot of porridge and water going on the (cold) hob overnight to soak before the next morning from my childhood. If you’re not a big fan of eating wet porridge in the mornings but still want to get some oats into you then this is another option. Read More
