The best fluffy and thick pancakes!

Pancakes are so simple to make and you can basiacally put anything you want on them. You can make them savery and sweet. The worlds is your pickle (love that saying)

I have been looking for the perfect recipe for thick fluffy pancakes fo quite a while know. An I have finally found the perfect one!! They are also easy to make. What more could you want.

You will need

  • 3 large eggs
  • 115 g. plain flour
  • 1 heaped teaspoon og baking powder
  • 140 ml of milk
  • A pinch of salt

 

Seperate the eegs and put the yolk in too a bowl and put the whites into another bowl. Add the flour, baking powder and milk to the egg yolks. Mix it into a smooth batter. If the batter looks really thick add a little more milk.

Whisk the eegwhites with the salt until it turns into stiff peaks.

Fold the eggwhites into the batter. Makes sure to fold them in gently so you don’t loose all the air.

using a pancake pan is the best way to cook pancakes on. Now pour some of your batter on to the pan and let the pancake sit there for 2 minutes (make sure not to have the heat on to high or the pancakes will burn and not cook all the way) flip the pancake and cook until lighty golden brown.

Now time to get creative and put whatever topping you want on your pancakes.

Enjoy!

Theese pancakes I added jam on to, but you can put anything on you like.

Just to make you aware. I can’t take credit for this recipe. It is actually Jamie Olivers recipe. I was actaully isnpired by zoella on youtube to make them, because she made them on her vlog channel a while ago, but I was just rewatching some of her old vlog and the pancakes she made just looked so good. So of cource I had to make them.

Hope you like this recipe anyways. And you will give it a try.

What do you like on your pancakes?

Beceause I’m am so pail, I almost blend in with my white sheets I like to wear a tan. Now this is actually a gradual tan, because a normal tan, would just look to orange on me. This is the Dove Derma spa for meduim to dark skin. This tan just look really natural and just adds a sunkissed look to your skin. I was actually inspired by anna saccone on youtube, to use this tan. You can go and watch the video here.

I am all about that waterproof mascara. If you have read any of my makup blog posts, you know that I only wear waterproof mascara. This is the maybelline The Falsies Push Up Drama mascara, and this keeps my lashes curled all day. A recent favorite of mine.

Bright lips is the way to go in spring and summer time. This is a lipgoss from maybeline in Alluring Coral. When you have it on, it almost looks like you just ate a orange posicle, which I love.

Here we have a mat lipstick, because sometimes I want a matt look. This is from rimmel in the color 109. It dosen’t have a color name, it is just called 109. Super pretty color.

This  is a lipbalm with a little bit of color. And this is if I don’t want to wear a lipgloss or a lipstick. I just grap this and it gives my lips a little bit of color. This is the babylips in the color cherry me.

Even though I drink water, my skin also needs a bit of love on the outside. This is a bodycreme from a danish store with pomegranatet sent. Love this!
