American Pancakes In Cornwall


Not a great picture, but these pancakes are delicious & so easy to make...
They also got the thumbs up from our American friends!

Vegan Pancake Recipe
1 cup (250g) self-raising whole wheat flour
1 cup porridge oats
1 heaped teaspoon ground linseeds or egg replacement powder
1 heaped teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch sea salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 cup water
1 cup plant milk

Method
Chuck all the dry ingredients into a bowl or large measuring jug.
Gradually add the wet ingredients & mix well.
Finish by whizzing with a hand blender...

We made them for breakfast at the weekend.
(Little D wasn't keen on Sime's porridge)

We get the hob ring hot & use a non-stick pan, so no need for oil, etc.
Pour enough mixture in the pan & cook until it starts bubbling fiercely.
The pancake should just flip over easily.

We burnt this one, so D (isn't she a cutie?) gave it to her Daddy...
We like fresh lemon or lime juice on ours with either some home made cinnamon sugar or a drizzle of maple syrup... Enjoy!

D's parents were in Cornwall to do a couple of shows & she likes joining in too...

We'll do another post about them & how we met...

Have a super duper weekend!

Jane - I definitely couldn't eat more than 2!

Kath - I think most food we enjoy cooking is using the "chuck it in" method!

It's my lovely wife's 45th birthday today and it's great to see her having such a nice time.  We had a bit of a lie-in, then Kay said that she'd like to go to the new Eden Project Cafe in St. Austell for breakfast.  
Having dined there recently, we were aware of their "Book Swap" area.  Choose a book from home you wish to donate, write a brief piece in the inside cover and put it in the Swap Section. Then, if there's a book you fancy, take it home. Kay donated her favourite book "The Complete SAS Guide to Interrogation Techniques". I made that up. She actually donated the wonderful book "The Tibetan Book Of Living and Dying" by Sogyal Rinpoche, only because the last page is missing. Just joking. It was in pristine condition . I suggested selling it at a car boot sale instead but  then she gave me one of her famous looks and I shut up. Kay wrote in the cover about how good the book is and how she hoped that whomever took it would find …

Lights Out!

We'll have friends staying, so a candlelit meal will definitely be on the cards...

What do you have planned?

Lamledra

The sun was shining yesterday again, so after a fairly busy week - we decided to get out for a long walk. We walked into Gorran Haven & took the coastal path back home...
Gorran Haven Harbour. This part of the coastal path takes you around the Lamledra pennisula, which heads towards Vault beach...
Gorran Haven.
It was chilly, but warm in the sun...
Black clouds started coming over & we thought it was going to rain, but it stayed dry!
First sign of Spring...
Dodman Point ahead & the blue skies were back...
We made the most of the sunshine & stopped to eat...
With a lovely view of the beach...
Lamledra House. We used to clean it, but quit after a year - because we only had 3 hours & felt we just couldn't get everything done - it sleeps 20! The owners are lovely though, but their budget is tight with constant maintenance.  They do have some interesting guests there...
It got to 5pm & we still had a long way to go, so we left the path & took the road...
