If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen that this past Friday I suffered a severe break on my swatch hand. So I chopped down all my nails to nubbins, which per se is not a problem for me. I do enjoy a clean fresh start from time to time. I just don't like the look of my hands with extremely short nails. First world problems, I know, but sometimes I go totally mental over things like this. Don't get me wrong, I do love shorties on other people, I just can't pull them off. So I won't show any swatches until the break has grown out a bit.
This gives me the perfect opportunity to share a few other things that have been on my "to blog about" list for quite a while now. First up is my very favorite pancake recipe. I just love pancakes with fresh fruits, they brighten any gloomy morning... or afternoon or evening, just whenever I feel like needing a little yummy treat ;)
Here is what you need for 6-8 pancakes
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 banana or a handful of blueberries
In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, then add egg, milk, honey and butter and mix until combined. Finally, fold in the fruits of your choice. Pour approx. 3 tablespoons per pancake in a hot, lightly buttered pan and cook from both sides until lightly browned. If you like, drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy!
Bon appétit and please let me know your recipe for the perfect pancakes!
