|Buttermilk pancakes with a banana smoothie|
Jason, however, is the opposite. The boy needs breakfast to function. And he likes Weetbix! For those of you who don't know, Weetbix is the name of New Zealand's number 1 breakfast cereal ("Kiwi Kids are Weetbix Kids" anyone?).
These high-fibre breakfast biscuits were once the bane of my life.
|I have yet to find a cereal that I like.|
|Ingredients: Cultured buttermilk, salt, baking powder, eggs and flour|
|Make sure the batter is free of flour lumps.|
|Step 4: Wait until the top starts bubbling before you flip your pancake over|
|This is what it looks like on the other side|
What's the perfect accompaniment to a pancake stack? Besides maple syrup or lemon and sugar I mean. Milkshakes, of course!
|Milk, vanilla ice cream, bananas, glasses and a food processor|
Jason's the expert when it comes to smoothies and milkshakes so I got to stand back and watched the master at work. Apparently I ruin smoothies by adding too much yoghurt. Excuse me for trying to be healthy.
|Milkshake step 2: Add a few spoonfuls of your favourite vanilla ice cream and blend|
I cannot fathom how easy it was to make this! They tasted exactly like cafe style milkshakes, except without the artificial syrups -I will never understand why they need fake banana flavour. No more will I order milkshakes from my local cafe -I will simply ask, very nicely, for Jason to make them =) In exchange for pancakes, of course.
|It's so fluffy I could die!|
|Lotti wanted a piece of the rainbow.. But it's all gone Muahahahaha!|
Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes (2 to 3 servings)
|Note: Milkshake will only be part of your meal if you actually make it|
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 large eggs
Buttermilk, enough to make a pourable batter (depends on your tastes)
1. Combine dry ingredients
2. Crack in eggs and add enough milk to make batter pourable (ours is a little thick -if you like thin pancakes, aim for a runny mixture aka more milk)
3. Mix to blend. Adjust milk and flour ratio if needed
4. Melt butter in pan (be careful not to burn it) and cook until bubbly, a little dry around the edges, and lightly browned on the bottom
5. Flip over until cooked6. Drizzle with your favourite toppings
Note: You can make normal pancakes by swapping out buttermilk for normal milk, but why would you?

MilkVanilla Ice Cream
