Blueberry Choc Chip & Lemon Banana Pancakes

I rarely ever had luck with normal pancakes, let alone vegan pancakes: too thin, too flimsy, too fragile; the list of faults I’ve had with pancakes over the years is endless. Not to mention that they are also too time consuming. Today however, all that changed. Today I made pancakes and they were none of the above.They were a success.Yes. You heard right – successful pancakes made by yours truly – the pancake assassinator. I was shocked. I was so shocked that I may have squealed with delight and gave my back a cheerful pat, when I saw my pancake success rate keep going up – 6 whole pancakes and not a broken one in sight.   So obviously I had to share the recipe. It all started when I watched Sophia Devita’s recent vlog on YouTube – she was making Oreo choc chip pancakes and while those pancakes looked delicious, I was focusing more on  her pancake making technique and how she managed to successfully make these delicious looking pancakes with banana – she mashed …

Dydd Gwyl Dewi: Crempogau

Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus So Wales beat France last night in the rugby – Woo Hoo – And now today is St Davids Day. So what better way to celebrate than with food. As a child St David’s day was never a day I looked forward to while I was at school and I think the reason behind it was because, as little welsh children we were always forced into wearing a welsh girl or boy costume and do folk dancing every St David’s Day – obviously I was a welsh girl – but it was embarrassing and even as a child I could see how humiliating that was, walking around with little black bonnets, aprons and a shawl, with either a daffodil pinned to it – or if you were a boy; grey trousers, shirt, tie, waistcoat, dai cap and a leek – Now as an adult I can look back and see how cute that is and how cute I must have looked all dressed up as a traditional welsh girl and I’m sure …

Vanilla Cottage Cheese Pancakes with a Sweet Lemon, Cream Cheese Frosting.

I haven’t had much of an appetite the last week, which means: little food and no energy. Today,  however, it returned with a vengeance and now I want to eat all the food. So I started with pancakes. Not just any plain old, boring pancakes. These were vanilla protein pancakes made with cottage cheese and topped with a  sweet, creamy, lemon cream cheese topping. They were delicious. Although, not filling enough for me; which isn’t a bad thing. I honestly have no idea how people can eat a low-calorie diet all the time; I feel like death warmed up and I have bigger bags under my eyes than an insomniac. The low-calorie life just isn’t for me. Give me all the calories or, in this case – pancakes What I noticed when eating these pancakes was how similar they tasted to a Victoria sponge and when topped with the sweet, lemon cream cheese; the taste reminded me of a lemon meringue. I mean who’s going to complain about that? Not me that’s for sure. I swear …
