These little pancakes are not my fluffy, light as a cloud pancakes, I will post the recipe for those another day - these little babies are designed to pick the one off the top, wrap it around the crème fraiche and bite into it. Yes, finger food for breakfast. I know mint is a bit 70's dinner party, however here it is not just a garnish - the sweet baby mint leaves add a delicious fresh crunch to the yummy breakfast bites!
- 1 cup Self Raising Flour
- 1 Egg
- 1/2 cup (or more) Milk
- pinch of Salt
- pinch of Sugar
- 1 heaped tablespoon Crème Fraiche
- 1 heaped tablspoon Cream
- 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Bean Paste
- 1 teaspoon Icing Sugar
- 1/2 punnet Strawberries, diced
- a few baby Mint Leaves
Heat a fry pan over a medium heat. Add all the ingredients for the pancakes into a mixing bowl and whisk until well combined. Use a piece of paper towel to wipe the pan with some butter, Pour in 10 cm rounds of batter. Wait until they are covered in little bubbles and no longer glossy around the edges before turning. cook the other side until golden. remove to a plate and repeat, until all batter is cooked.
While your pancakes are cooking, place all the ingredients for the crème fraiche into a bowl and whisk until slightly thickened.
When you are ready to serve, place 1 pancake in the centre of each plate. Top with a small amount of crème fraiche in the centre and top with some diced strawberries. Continue to stack, making sure the top pancake gets some topping. Add some mint, here and there and enjoy!
