How-Tu Tuesdays: Pancake Day Special
The Tuminds team are big fans of cakes, baking and all things food. So it is inevitable that Pancake Day is an important day in our diary. After a great Tuesday brunch shared with our lovely neighbours, Dynam, we thought we will share our not-so-bad-for-you oatmeal pancakes recipe with you to celebrate this indulgently satisfying day.
Not-so-bad-for-you Oatmeal Pancakes (makes 6)
- 1/2 cup of rolled oats
- 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup of whole meal flour
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 1 tsp of baking soda
- 1 tbsp of caster sugar
- 1/4 of tsp of salt
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 egg
- 1 tsbp of vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp of butter, melted
- butter for frying
- In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients: oats, all-purpose flour, whole meal flour, baking powder, baking soda, caster sugar and salt
- Add the milk and egg to the same bowl and whisk until combined
- Stir in the vanilla extract and cooled melted butter
- For best results, let the batter sit for 15-30 mins
- Heat your griddle on medium and brush some butter on the surface before scoping the batter on with a ladle
- Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown
- Repeat until all the batter is used up. You can keep the pancakes warm in a low oven, but make sure your oven’s temperature is very low to avoid the pancakes from over cooking.
Enjoy with nutella and banana slices!
