I have a soft spot for buffet breakfasts and I replay look forward to eating as much as I can in one sitting. I like to start with Muesli, move on to pancakes with fruit and then eat a many pastries as I can. The odd time I may go for the cooked bits and have a little plate but as I have mentioned before, I am not a fan of bacon.
Just recently we have become a family where everyone likes muesli. It was just my thing and now I have to share. We save it for the weekend to have with some good yoghurt. We have tried several types and keep coming back to the same one. This one is a classic and it vanishes fast. It is the good old Hubbards Simply Toasted Muesli – Original. Hubbards turned 25 this year (2015) and they know what they are doing.
Our weekend love of muesli and my love of pancakes got me thinking about a way to make the perfect breakfast. Muesli Pancakes sounded like the idea marriage. We enjoy oat pancakes so why not muesli? It worked and I loved getting a little surprise in each bite.
This recipe is perfect for using up that last bit of muesli in the bottom of the bag, not having any wastage is always a good thing.
If the muesli idea doesn’t float your boat, leave it out. These are damn fine panckers.
Muesli Pancakes - Muffinmum.com
2 c Self Raising Flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 c caster sugar
1 1/2 c milk
2 tsp lemon juice/white vinegar
1 tbsp oil (I used canola)
1/2 – 1 c muesli (I used Hubbards Simply Toasted original)
Butter for frying
Heat milk in a jug for around 40 secs in microwave (warm to touch).
Add lemon juice or white vinegar to the milk, this sours it.
In a bowl mix flour, baking powder , caster sugar and pinch of salt.
Add eggs and oil to the milk jug and mix to break up eggs.
Combine the wet mix to the flour and stir until mixed (I used my mixer).
Now add the muesli and stir until all mixed in.
Set aside for around 10 minutes.
Gently heat a large fry pan and add small knob of butter.
Tip the mix into the jug and use this to help tip the pancakes into the pan.
You want a count of about 4 as you tip, I got 3 in each pan.
Turn the pancakes when bubbles start to form.
Keep warm in the grill while you cook the batch.
Eat with fresh fruit and your favourite toppings.
