Peanut Butter Pancakes

Hello everyone, thanks for checking out my post today!

I hope your day has been well, today’s recipe is peanut butter pancakes. If you didn’t know I’m actually quite a fan of peanut butter but I haven’t really experimented with it in other foods. I found this recipe from here and the book is called Peanut Butter: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Midnight by Tim Lannan and James Annabel if you are interested in peanut butter recipes.

The peanut butter taste is quite subtle and I even tried them with a drizzle of maple syrup the next day which was just as tasty. This recipe is great and the pancakes can be kept in the fridge for at least 2 days.

Mini Smartie Biscuits

Hey everyone, I hope your days has been well.

I made these mini biscuits late one evening as I fancied a little treat. They taste so good and are not too sweet. These biscuits are light to the bite and you could bake them without the Smartie for a healthier version. These would make a nice gift for someone who like biscuits and great for a family gathering. Super simple to make!!

Recipe: Mini Smartie Biscuits (makes 33)

Ingredients

100g butter

50g caster sugar

170g self-raising flour

Extra flour for dusting

33 Smarties

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and line 2 trays with baking paper.
  • Mix the butter and sugar together and gradually mix in the flour using your hands to form a dough.
  • Roll the dough with a rolling pin to a little thicker than a 1 pound coin and use a curved cutter to make the biscuit shape and place each one on a tray.
  • Continue until all the dough is used and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.

Egg Paratha

Hey everyone, I hope your day had been well!

I’m posting a slightly different cuisine today and when I looked online for recipe inspiration there were quite a few variations which included minced meat or vegetables but as it was my first time making it I kept it simple with egg. This dish, paratha is commonly eaten in places like India and Bangladesh in homes and as a street food. I ate mine with a little squirt of tomato ketchup but it would be even more tasty with a salad, chutney or yogurt.

Recipe: Egg Paratha (makes 1)

Ingredients

63g plain flour

4 tbsp water

1 egg

Spring onion

Salt

Pepper

Chilli

Tumeric

Method

  • To make the dough, mix the flour and water together until it forms a smooth dough and knead for 5 minutes.
  • Mix the egg, spring onion and a sprinkle of salt, pepper, chilli and tumeric together in a small bowl.
  • Heat a pan, whilst waiting for it to get hot, roll out the chapati to a round circle and place in the pan to cook on one side.
  • The pour the egg mixture on top and turn once the egg mixture is no longer runny. Cook for a few another minute and serve.
