HOUSE RULES

Happy Pancake Tuesday lovelies <3



How was your day of pancakeness?
Any pancake epiphanies or devine chocolate conceptions? 
With or with out the delicious-religious monologue 
I thought I would share my healthy take on pancakes with you 
as an optional extra after all the extravagancies !

I chose to do little silver dollar pancake 
except i used crepe batter instead of fluffy pancake batter 
so they are light and chewy.

For this recipe to make my 'Tall Order Pancakes' you will need:
  • 12 mini pancakes
  • Plain greek yoghurt
  • 2 Strawberries/ or a whole pack whatever tickles your fancy
  • Runny honey/ golden syrup
  • Pumpkin/ sesame/ sunflower seeds to decorate
(you can also use toasted nuts instead of seeds and any fruit
if your looking for a bit of adventure in life)


* Here are my lovely toasty pancakes getting a suntan.
(2 lots of six is better than over-crowding the poor little buggers :)


* Chop your strawberries into generous slices
while your pancakes chill out for a while 
(or cool down in non pancake talk)


 Now its time to build your tasty towers
* On a plate place a pancake with a dollop of yoghurt.


* Then add some pieces of strawberry,
cover with another pancake
*Repeat process until you have two towers of six pancakes


* To decorate add last of yogurt and fruit
and generously cover with honey and seeds/ nuts

And this is what you will end up with-


Mmm... drizzly



An artsy close up- 
I know total food porn right?


I also thought you would like my favorite healthy breakfast treat 
since it seems fitting with the whole 
in fine fettle (meaning in good health) feeling of this post.

This is 
strawberry granola 
with greek yoghurt and fresh mango
and it is thee BOMB!

No recipe for this one just slap it all together
and see what comes out as its always scofable,
and you can add different fruit depending 
on your taste/ mood.

(mine has a a dusting of icing sugar for sweetness)



Anyway thats Pancake Tuesday done for another year
but i think these recipes are good any time
what do you think?

Hope you like
Bye for now Hoi Polloi

Peace out
