Easy & Tasty Flapjacks recipe.

Welcome to the first official #FoodFriday post!

Today, I’m starting this thread off with the most important meal of the day: Breakfast.

Aside from the fact that I’m basically having dessert for breakfast, I love this recipe because it’s extremely simple and easy to make. And, it can be tweaked to suit your needs and taste buds.

A little backstory:

A few years ago, I’d gotten tired of having either cereal, oats or bread (with various spreads) for breakfast, but wasn’t sure what to make. To add on to that, my granddad was in the country visiting and I needed to make something that wouldn’t take too long. He’s an early riser, and so his hunger pays us a visit pretty early too.

A quick search on google led to me find this super easy recipe that you can whip up in 35 minutes max! In true Jo-fashion, I tweaked it here and there to suit what we had in our kitchen and accommodate my family’s palette, and it’s become a staple breakfast dish in our home since then.

 

 

  • Ingredients (for 8-10 flapjacks):
    1 cup sifted flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    2 tbsp sugar
    1 egg
    1 cup milk
    3 tbsp butter, melted

    • (Optional extra: The zest and juice of half an orange)

If you’ve got a big family like mine, double or triple the measurements as necessary

  • Method:
    1. Sift the dry ingredients together into a mixing bowl.
    2. In another bowl beat the egg, adding in the milk and butter until well blended.
    3. Pour the egg mixture into the dry ingredients and beat until combined and smooth. No one wants a lumpy flapjack guys. (At this point you can add in the orange zest and juice if you want to, and mix it in)
    4. . Let the mix rest for 5-10 minutes.
    5. Place a large pan on a medium heat, add in 3-4 tablespoons of batter per flapjack and cook until bubbles form on the surface.
    6. Turn the flapjacks over and cook for another 2 minutes, or until nicely browned.

 

 

And there you go, all done and ready to dress-up, devour and conquer!

You can top them with berries and icing sugar, or spread nutella/chocolate spread in between each flapjack. Or alternatively, you could pour honey, maple syrup, cream or homemade caramel right over a stack of 6-8.

I’d love to hear from you how the recipe turns out. Do let me know once you’ve tried it.

 

Love & light to You & yours

Xo, Jo

  1. Hi. If I don’t have time to make this every morning, can I mix the ingredients and leave them in the fridge till the following day, or will this mess with the recipe somehow?

    1. Hey Lanino!
      Yes, you can definitely make it a day ahead. Just make sure to let it warm to room temperature the next day before scooping the batter onto the pan. This just helps in terms of the bbatter not being so stiff. Or, alternatively, add an extra half a cup of milk while you make the batter.

Got any thoughts/questions on today's post?
