Pancakes are hands-down one of the best foods ever; I’m not even going to confine them to ‘breakfast foods’ because there’s no way you couldn’t eat them for every meal… As with everything sweet served at family meals, we made whipped cream to go with these but yogurt would be perfect too. I sprinkled the tangerines with a tiny bit of sugar and some cinnamon before serving.
Hope you had a lovely Christmas if you celebrate it, or at least a nice time with your friends and family!
There is an iced coffee with Bourbon and vanilla cream on top in the background there, which I asked my little brother to ‘hand model’ for in a photo below… 🙂
Christmas Day Buttermilk Pancakes with Fruit and Cream
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup rice flour
1/4 cup white sugar
2&1/4 cups buttermilk
Zest of one orange or lemon
1/4 cup olive oil
Toasted coconut flakes
Fresh fruit of your choice
Mix all the dry ingredients together, then add the wet ingredients and mix the batter until combined.
Heat up a skillet pan or a frying pan and drizzle in a little oil. Cook the pancakes until golden (they will turn quite dark but they still taste great don’t worry), and keep warm by placing a tea towel over them while you cook the others.
Serve ASAP and enjoy with whatever toppings you wish!
