Heart Shaped Pancakes

These pancakes are the perfect for Valentine’s Day, Mother's Day or any day! 


Yield: [6 heart shaped pancakes]

Prep time: [10 mins]

Total time: [30 mins]


Ingredients:

Plain flour | 135 g

Baking powder | 1 tsp

Salt | ½ tsp

Castor sugar | 2 tbsp.

Milk | 130 ml

Eggs | 1 egg

Oil/butter | 2 tbsp. of oil + extra for cooking or 2 tbsp. of melted butter + extra for cooking


Directions:

In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar. In a separate bowl or jug, whisk together the egg and milk, then whisk in the oil/butter. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and gently beat until you have a smooth batter. The batter will seem very thick but this is how it should be. Any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing. Let the batter stand for a few minutes.


Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat until hot. Add about a tablespoon of oil/butter into the frying pan, using a brush or paper towel rub the oil/butter around surface of the pan. Brush the inside of the heart shaped mould with some oil/butter and place inside the middle of the pan to heat up. Add a ladle of batter inside the heart shaped mould, filling it up about 3/4 of the way as the batter will rise when it cooks. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then using a tea towel remove the mould and turn the pancake over. Cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about 1 cm thick.


Repeat this process until all the batter is used up. Serve up your warm heart shaped pancakes with maple syrup topped with your favourite berries and a dusting of icing sugar.


Enjoy!
