From part one I showed you a fun game to play, but what about breakfast? Known as the most important meal of the day, this is the best thing to help you from the sleepover graveyard. Here are some easy recipes that you can make. Make sure you ask for help if you need it though.
Banana smoothie burst
A sweet classic. It’s fruity, sweet and a healthy treat. Change the ingredients for a different flavour if you prefer raspberries or mango.
1 frozen banana (one per every 2 people)
1 squeeze of honey (optional
1 scoop of vanilla ice cream (one per every 2 people)
10 cubes of ice (5 per every person)
250ml of milk of until you can only see the tips of you ingredients
- Cut your banana in half and place in stick blender
- Add ice cream and ice
- Pour milk and honey into blender
- Blend until mixture is the thickness of cream
- Pour in cups and enjoy!
Soft as a pillow pancakes
½ cup of milk
2 teaspoons of butter
1 cup of self-raising flour (you can substitute with Gluten Free Flour if you need to)
A pinch of salt
3 tablespoons sugar (or less if you wish)
- Place egg, sugar and half of the milk in a bowl and whisk very well
- Sift flower and salt twice and add to mixture
- Add milk until batter is the consistency of thick cream. Add melted butter
- Beat till smooth (if you wanted to flavour your pancakes with cocoa, fruit or chocolate chips, add these here but don’t add too much to the mix or it will effect the texture)
- Pour or ladle onto a pre heated and buttered fry pan. You can create patterns with a teaspoon while you are pouring in to the pan. Drizzle a pattern and then pour the normal amount of pancake mix over the top is one way to create a design on your pancake.
- When side is bubbly turn over with a spatula
- Remove with your spatula to a plate to cool
- Repeat until all of the mixture has gone.
Things to have with your pancakes: Maple syrup, lemon and sugar, bacon, fruit, nutella, ice cream…. anything you like!
TIP: if you want to have your pancakes to be even puffier, watch the consistency of the batter. The thicker the batter, the higher the rise. You can add a half teaspoon of baking powder to this recipe as well. If you have particularly thick pancakes in the pan, I put a lid over the fry pan for a minute to help them cook through so they are not undercooked in the middle.
