Buttermilk pancake recipe: Nutella or Biscoff

What’s better than breakfast in bed? A buttermilk pancake breakfast in bed, that’s what. If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll probably have guessed that I have a bit of an addiction to sweet breakfast foods: pancakes, croissants, waffles...especially when topped with either Nutella and strawberries or Biscoff, and you all seem to share the very same love too. 

So today I thought I’d share my very favourite buttermilk pancake recipe so you can all recreate and treat yourself to the best possible start to your day...because no bad day starts with pancakes, right? 

Recipe for fluffy, amazing buttermilk pancakes: 

•350g self-raising flour 
•1tsp bicarbonate soda
•1/2 tsp salt 
•2 tbsp caster sugar 
•200ml buttermilk
•400ml semi-skimmed milk 
•2 medium eggs 
•85g unsalted butter (and a little extra for melting in pan) 

M E T H O D 

1.) In a bowl sift together the flour, bicarbonate soda, salt and sugar. 

2.) In a separate bowl mix together the buttermilk, milk, eggs and butter. 

3.) Create a ‘well’ in the middle of the flour mix and then pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and stir to mix (PS: don’t overmix, just mix until combined and then stop). 

4.) Melt a small amount of butter in a frying pan, then pour some batter into the pan to make a pancake. (I usually like to make smallish but thicker style pancakes so don’t overdo the mixture, but if you prefer you could make them bigger so add more to your preferences.) 

5.) Cook your pancakes for about a minute, or until the underside is golden brown and the top is bubbling. Turn them over using a fish slice and cook for another minute. It usually takes me a few attempts and they get better as they go along. 

6.) Top with LOTS of Nutella/Biscoff, a drizzle of white chocolate, whipped cream, chocolate chips and your favourite fruit. 

Notes: *Preferably try not to set the smoke alarm off when frying your pancakes so your boyfriend thinks that you’re burning the house down like I’ll get laughed at!!! 

Ta da, flipping perfect every single time, I hope that you enjoy! Don’t forget to take photos as always, you know how nosy I am!
