Hello peeps,

Been very very very slack! But also been needing to fit into our new work uniforms so i have laid off the baking for a while.

I am going to expand my blogging to not only to baking delights but cooking in general i really want to share with you a marinade my better half found that is delish!

But first up…

Mothers has just past so i wish to share with you my Strawberries and Cream pancake recipe!

See Pancake Recipes for this.

Yes stop drooling! These pancakes are the best yet!


2 cups plain flour

3 teaspoons baking powder

pinch of salt

2 eggs

1.5 cups of milk

1/3 cup sugar

2 tablespoons of strawberry jam

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

500ml Thickened Cream

1.5 icing sugar


Sift in the flour and add in the baking powder and salt and sugar. Whisk in the 2 eggs, add in half the milk add in the vanilla extract and slowly add in the rest of the milk.  place the jam in and mix until combined. pour into the fry pan and flip when there are bubbles popping in the mixture.

Place some cream into a mixing bowl and add in the icing sugar – beat with electric mixer until the cream is thick and fluffy (i added food colouring to my cream).

Layer the pancakes with strawberry jam and the cream, if you have a punnet of strawberries place on top as well.
