Birthday Pancakes



TODAY IS MY BIRTHDAY! To get the celebrations going, we had a grill party last night for some of our best friends. It was wonderful - we had a great time, and I got some lovely gifts. Food included grilled pork chops and sausages, a basil-orange potato salad with mozzarella, a strawberry salsa, a homemade barbecue sauce, a salad with quinoa and rocket, cookies, and a very yummy blackberry birthday cake that my friend Anna made. Will tell you more about the food in other posts! (And yes, I *will* tell you more about the house, soon!)

Today, we had pancakes for breakfast, topped with heaps of fresh strawberries. Is there anything better? I doubt it.

Birthday Pancakes

125 g flour
1 tbsp sugar
pinch of salt
1,5 tsp baking powder
1 egg, lightly beaten
35 g melted butter
375 ml (1,5 cups) buttermilk

1 tbsp sugar
pinch of salt

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Stir in the buttermilk, the egg and the melted butter, and mix gently to a thick batter. Drop in large spoonfuls in a hot, buttered frying pan, and fry on medium heat on one side until you see large bubbles. Then turn, and fry for a little while longer. Serve with lots of maple syrup and fresh strawberries.

Happy Birthday!

Those pancakes look fantastic. I'm going to have to try that recipe out. Also, the mention of the blackberry cake makes my mouth salivate.

A very happy birthday to you from Vienna ! And with a lovely new house and the first year of marriage (almost) behind you it must be a very happy one indeed, at least this is what I wish you from all my heart. I am a regular visitor still and though I am a doggie-person I adore your cat-photos. Have a great day and always keep on enjoying life, angelika
