This weekend I brought home a bunch of bananas and a half carton of eggs, and had a go at my own version of these healthy pancake recipe(s) from Buzzfeed. Flipping things is usually my weakness, yet I keep taking it on. Regular pancakes, green onion pancakes, blinkity blanking crepes… but I am happy to say that by the third round of pancakes I had it down pretty good.
Made with The Country Hen eggs every time, because they are free range, organic… and the only 6-egg carton available at my local grocery store, which works out quite nicely.
And as for the syrup, that came about mainly because I had some still hard cider that had been hanging out in the fridge for a while. It was still okay, but, you know… a little past its Best By date. Whoops. So I used it for cooking, and the results were very tasty with a hint of boozy — let’s hear it for 6.9% AVB!
On their own the pancakes are quite good, moist and almost bready with bursts of hot blueberry juice here and there. With the syrup they were absolutely perfect, although that does send the “healthy” part into a little bit of a decline.
