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.

LEMON & POPPY SEED PANCAKES | BREAKFAST OR DESSERT

So my food photography is coming along quite nicely.  I do tend to gravitate towards the dark moody stuff however every now and then I get an urge for something more light and fresh. I keep exploring and trying new things and buying more props! It is so hard to resist when you find something really unique and unusual.  Or versatile.  Or pretty.  Ok, you get it. 

These pancakes are the recipe from Joy Wilson, and is on her blog Joy the Baker. She is a popular food blogger with numerous delicious recipes.  You can find the pancake recipe here.  Me being a huge fan of anything lemon decided to make a Lemon Sugar Syrup to drizzle over the top.  Plus that would be fun to photograph right?  Well, that was a bit of a challenge actually!  Trying to press the camera trigger and drizzle in just the right place - nope not easy.  Half the time I couldn't even get it in the shot.  Anyway, the sugar syrup I just put in some water, and sugar in a saucepan with some lemon zest, and a few drops of Lemon Essential from doTerra.  That gave it a real zing and it was seriously delicious! It is worth a try.  

Anyway, if you would like to see more of my food photography, most of it goes on Instagram these days.

Happy cooking....
