I woke up with a sweet tooth this morning, so decided to go with some pancakes. I am a sucker for anything cinnamon-raisin, so it seemed the perfect combination for the situation.
- Flour 1/2 cup (for lighter pancakes use self rising)
- Porridge Oats 1/2 cup
- Raisins 1/4 cup
- Baking Powder 1/2 tsp
- Egg 1
- Soy Milk (any milk will do) 250 ml (approx 1 cup)
- Coconut Oil 1 Tbs (any vegetable oil will do, but I like the sweet hint in the pancake)
- Cinnamon 1 tsp
- Salt pinch
Combine the flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl and mix well. Add a beaten egg and the raisins. Stir in the milk until it makes a fluid, but not watery batter. Heat the oil in a frying pan, and make sure the pan is well coated. Pour any excess oil into the batter and mix. Take a tiny amount of the batter and drip it into the pan. When it sizzles and starts to take the form of a tiny pancake, take a ladle full of the batter into the pan and allow it to spread into a pancake. When bubbles form, and the indents caused by them remain, carefully flip the pancake to allow the other side to cook (about 1-2 minutes). Repeat the ladling process until all the batter is used.
Serve with butter and your choice of toppings (on this occasion I used 1 Tbs of golden syrup).
