BAKED PANCAKE WITH BALSAMIC SUMMER BERRIES

baked pancake balsamic summer berries

{INGRID} I’m a cheat! I’m always looking for ways to miss out cooking steps, to create delicious meals without having to slave in the kitchen for hours. With two crazy fun kids glued to my side most of the time ( Miss 18 month old has perfected the barnacle hold around my leg so I drag her around the kitchen – my only exercise right now!) So, baked pancakes are fantastic in my household right now – I serve them as a weekend breakfast, Vanessa’s savoury pancakes are an easy dinner option and this year I’m thinking they will make the perfect Christmas morning brunch. Easy peasy pancakes that look amazing straight out of the oven, and they can be adapted in so many ways. Keep the basic batter recipe, but instead add chopped bananas and a drizzle of honey or what about caramelised apples or chopped up nectarines (throw them in the oven at the same time with a sprinkle of sugar, a dollop of butter and a little bit of cinnamon). These glorious baked pancakes were the star of our Live TV moment.

  1. Ah ha, I also have a 20 month barnacle so know this well. Simple easy recipes are a must for us busy Mum’s. Can’t wait for Summer berries!
