Mothers Day Breakfast In Bed | Easy Buttermilk Pancakes

Spoil your Mum for this Mothers Day with a super easy pancake recipe. Fluffy buttermilk pancakes that the kids can make.

Simple Buttermilk Pancakes

1 cup (150g) of Self Raising Flour
1 tbsp (10g) of white sugar
1 cup (250ml) of buttermilk
2 tbsp (40ml) of melted butter

Put the dry ingredients into a medium size mixing bowl and combine.
Make a well in the centre.
Pour in the buttermilk, then the melted butter.
Mix with a whisk until well combined, however do not mix for too long.
The mixture will be quite thick and may still have some lumps, and that is quite normal.
Allow to stand for 15 minutes.

Place a medium size non stick frypan over the stove on a low - medium heat.
Place a small amount of butter in pan and wait until it melts.
Pour about 1/2 a cup of the mixture into the centre of the frypan, cooking one pancake at a time on low-medium heat.
Pancake is ready to turn over when bubbles appear on the top.
Turn the pancake with a spatula and remove once both sides are golden.
Repeat for remaining mixture which makes 4-5 medium sized pancakes.

Breakfast Ideas | Cheesy Potatoes

Yes, it is a long while since I posted my previous breakfast idea.  There is my bircher muesliin case you haven't seen that.  Here is the second installment as part of my breakfast series.  My kids love this for breakfast lunch or dinner!  Sometimes I will even just put the potatoes in their lunch boxes on their own.   

Wash the skins of the potatoes.  I try to use organic potatoes - they are one of the vegetables with the highest rates of pesticides. 


Bake in oven on 180C for 40 minutes until cooked through.  Depending on size of potatoes this may be shorter or longer.  Remove and cut off the tops of the potatoes.

Scoop flesh into a bowl.  Add a dash of milk, some grated cheese, salt and mix until combined.  You could also add here shallots, paprika or mustard if you wished. Put potato mixture back into empty potato shells.

Sprinkle some more grated cheese on top.  Place in oven or grill until golden.

Remove from oven and resist eating the crunch cheesy top! 



I often serve with some leftover savoury mince.  My kids love these for breakfast, lunch or dinner.  For breakfast I would cook the potatoes the day ahead and have them ready to pop in the oven in the morning.  They are also great, cold in their lunchboxes. 

You might wonder why I am showing you my breakfast ideas.  Well I am always looking for an alternative to what we thing is a standard breakfast - cereal.  I also feel like if I can inspire one person to skip the cereal and go for something a little more nutritious then that would be awesome! If you have any good breakfast ideas I would love to here about them.
