Lazy Sundays

Its bank holiday weekend, a time to relax, try something different for Sunday breakfast.

Pancakes, with savoury or fruity topping are a real treat and a change from 'The Fry Up' most people have on a Sunday.

Try this delicious recipe for breakfast pancakes and i'm sure you won't wait for the next bank holiday to have them again.

Breakfast Pancakes


175g plain flour
2tsp baking powder
1tbsp sugar
300ml buttermilk
1 egg
2tbsp sunflower oil


Mix together the dry ingredients
Whisk together the milk, egg and oil, and quickly beat into the flour
Heat a little oil in a large frying pan and spoon in about 2tbsp batter per pancake
Cook till bubbles form on top, about 2 minutes, turn, and cook for a further 1-2 minutes. Keep finished pancakes warm.

In the pancakes

Banana Pancakes: Add some mashed banana to the basic batter.
Cinnamon and Apple: Add some chopped apple and 1/2tsp cinnamon to the batter.

On the pancakes

Maple syrup and crispy bacon.
Cottage cheese or fromage frais with chopped fruit and berries.
Fried or poached eggs with grilled pancetta
Scrambled eggs with smoked salmon.
Raspberries with creme fraiche.


To give a richer flavour to pancakes and to prevent them sticking to the pan, stir in 1-2 tbsp melted butter or oil to the batter before cooking.

Cooked pancakes may be refrigerated for up 2 days . They also freeze well for up to 3 months, if separated by greaseproof paper. Thaw them overnight in the fridge. To reheat warm them in the oven.
