As it is a Sunday, I thought I’d spend some time slowly brewing my favourite tea at the moment; sticky honey chai, from T2. It takes time; slowly warming the milk and chai together, and decanting it into my favourite teapot. The teapot was a present we bought for ourselves when we were on our honeymoon in Australia a couple of years ago. We met the shopkeeper who was this larger than life woman who we ended up chatting to for almost an hour, and every time I get the teapot out it makes me smile to think about her, and our wonderful time on honeymoon.
As I’d decided to make a sweet drink, I thought I’d opt for some savoury pancakes. I love these. The flavour from the sundried tomatoes can be a little salty, so if you’d like, you could add some cherry tomatoes with the seeds out instead. I gave these to my little man and he absolutely loved them! I drizzled them on top with my basil pesto that I made during the week, and added goats cheese for James and I. This is the perfect breakfast to start what will hopefully be a perfect day.
I hope you have a wonderful day. Let me know what you think about savoury pancakes!
Ingredients (serves 3):
90g Plain Flour
3/4 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
1/2 Medium Free Range Egg, Beaten
35g Sundried Tomatoes, finely chopped
1/2 tsp Oregano
Olive oil or Sunflower Oil Spray, or tsp of either
Pesto, to serve
Goats Cheese, to serve
- Sift the flour and bicarbonate of soda together into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre, then add in the egg and buttermilk. Stir until smooth using a balloon whisk. Add in the tomatoes and oregano, and mix together.
- Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, and spray with the oil. Spoon heaped tablespoons of the mixture on to the pan. Once you see bubbles forming on top (usually bout 1-2 minutes), flip onto the other side.
- Keep doing this in batches until all of the mixture is gone.
- Plate up, and drizzle over the pesto and add goats cheese if using.
