A quick midweek bacon and eggs but panic, I’ve no bread left, what to do?

I make pancakes, to my standard recipe but without sweetness. I add salt and pepper and fry in the bacon pan……brace yourself for full english fabulous! I made mine bitesize and tucked in canapé style topped with frazzled bacon and ‘shrooms, bloomin’ gorgeous.

Vanilla American style pancakes

Beautiful texture, these pancakes are so quick to make; from craving to table in under 10 mins if everything is to hand.
Place a jug on your scales and set to zero. Add to the jug, 130g plain flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 3 tsp sugar/stevia blend – I used Tate & Lyle light at heart, 130ml milk, 1 large egg, 1 tsp good vanilla extract. whisk with a fork to a smooth batter and leave to stand for a couple of minutes.
Get a frying pan hot and melt a dot of butter for each batch of two small pancakes.
Pour two rounds of batter with a gap for spreading and when bubbles appear, flip over.
The little ones take only a minute or just over each side to be golden brown and fluffy in the middle.
Serve any way you wish, with more butter and honey, maple syrup…

How to:
Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan/ gas mark 4. Grease and line a 21b loaf tin with baking parchment.
In a large bowl combine the bananas, eggs, pumpkin butter and grass-fed butter until you have a smooth batter. Add the coconut flour, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, and sea salt and mix well then pour into the prepared tin.
Mix the seeds, nuts, honey and vanilla until coated and drop on top of the batter.
Bake for 50-60 minutes until golden and a skewer when inserted into the middle comes away clean. Remove from oven and turn out onto a cooling rack and serve once cool. Really rather special with a slather of butter on top and a cup of good black tea!
