1. The Fluffiest Buttermilk Pancakes

It’s like eating a delicious cloud!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 milk
  • 2 1/2 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • Pinch of salt
  • Dash of love

* Makes 8 mutant pancakes or 10 large pancakes

Method:

  1. Measure 1 ¼ cup milk in a bowl, add 2 ½ tbs white vinegar to it and a tiny pinch of salt. Stir and let it sit for 15 minutes. The milk should curdle (that’s buttermilk right there). Don’t worry, it’ll taste fabulous.
  2. After 15 minutes, preheat a nonstick pan over medium heat.
  3. Combine all of the remaining ingredients with buttermilk and mix until smooth.
  4. Pour the batter by spoonfuls into the hot pan, forming 5-inch circles.
  5. When the edges appear to harden, flip the pancakes. They should be golden brown.
  6. Cook pancakes on the other side for the same amount of time, until golden brown.
  7. You can top the pancakes with butter, maple syrup, honey, mango, ice cream, or Nutella. It’s a great base for all kinds of flavours.

2. Breakfast Pizza

Pizza = <3

Ingredients:

  • 4 readymade pizza dough base
  • Olive oil, for drizzling
  • 1/2 cup parmesan, grated
  • 200 grams fresh mozzarella, sliced about 1/4-inch thick
  • 4 eggs
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 bunch spring onion, thinly sliced
  • Caramelised onions (optional)
  • 8 chicken sausage (optional)
  • Chives, minced
  • 1 pack cherry tomatoes (can be replaced with ready made pizza sauce or pesto)
  • Fresh herbs (I suggest basil and oregano. You could also use mixed herbs de province)
  • Dash of love

* Serves 4 very hungry people, or feeds up to 6.

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven or OTG to 232 degrees centegrate for 15 minutes
  2. If you have a pizza stone, place it on the oven rack to warm. Generously dust the surface of a baking sheet with semolina (aka rawa or sooji).
  3. (Optional) If you’re using sausage, heat a large pan over medium-high heat, add the sausage, and pan-fry until crisp. Put the sausage on a plate lined with paper towels, let it cool, and then cut into bite-size pieces.
  4. Place the pizza dough on the semolina. Drizzle a bit of olive oil over the dough and, using your fingers, brush the dough evenly with the oil. Top with cherry tomatoes (or substitute of choice).
  5. Sprinkle ¼ of the measured Parmesan over the dough, followed by a few slices of mozzarella. Top with caramalized onions, and sausages. Crack 1 egg over the top and season with salt, pepper and herbs to taste.
  6. Bake the pizza for 8 to 14 minutes, checking on it after 5 minutes and rotating it if necessary to ensure that it is baking evenly. When the crust is golden, the cheese melted, and the egg yolks cooked to medium, carefully transfer the pizza to a cutting board. Let it cool for 2 minutes and sprinkle with chives and spring onions. Slice and serve immediately.
