Tanya Bakes - Jamie Oliver's American Pancakes

There's nothing more I like to eat than pancakes in the morning, but with waking up at 5am to get to work, there's nothing less I want to do then spend more than 5 minutes on my breakfast. So when I found Jamie Oliver's pancake recipe in Tanya Burr's new baking book, I found a way to eat them for breakfast even when waking up at the crack of dawn... freeze them. By simply defrosting them each morning, they make a quick and simple breakfast that satisfies the cravings of amazing american pancakes.

On to the recipe: 
3 eggs
115g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
140g milk
pinch of salt
1tbs butter

To serve [Optional]
Chocolate sauce

1. Seperate the eggs between two large bowls
2. Add the baking powder and milk to the yolks and mix to form a smooth batter
3. Whisk the whites with salt until soft peaks form and fold into the batter with a metal spoon
4. Fold the whites into the yolk mix
5. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and melt a little butter in it.
6. Pour a heaped tablespoon of batter into the pan, maybe 3 at a time
7. Fry for 2 minutes until the air bubbles rise to the surface and flip over
8. The pancakes are ready once they're golden and firm on both sides. 
9. Freeze or eat straight away with whatever topping you desire

There you have it, a delicious breakfast treat made from the wonderful Tanya Bakes, which you can purchase here.
