Woke up this morning and thought hmmmmm pancakes. Googled American pancakes and threw these together with Nutella and golden syrup over the top. 

1) sieve 100g self raising flour into a bowl, add a dessert spoon of caster sugar and a dessert spoon of oats.

2) beat in 1 egg, pouring in small amounts of milk til the mix is a gloopy consistency.

3) wipe a frying pan with oil and heat, but not too hot. Ladle in the batter, and flip when little bubbles form all over.

Makes 4, serve with gooey sugary things!

When I was little my dad used to make the best ever pancakes. They’re big and thin and tasty. The recipe is also barely a recipe!

In a bowl whisk 1 cup milk, 1 egg and just under 1 cup of plain flour. The mixture should be quite liquidy. Butter a frying pan and put on a medium heat. Transfer the mixture a ladle at a time and flip once til golden.

Serve with Nutella, banana and syrup. Sod healthy pancakes today. Be naughty and enjoy it.

  
I used to be sceptical about mug cakes since a friend made one which exploded in her microwave. I’ve now mastered them and they’re now my Friday night treat. I plan to discover the ‘healthy’ mug cake eventually, but in the meantime I’ll stick to the cheeky ones. 

In a mug whisk up 1 heaped dessert spoon of Nutella, 1 heaped dessert spoon of peanut butter (I used meridian crunchy), 1 medium egg and 1 dessert spoon of cocoa powder.

Microwave for 70 seconds. 

What to experiment with next?

  
The thing I learnt with mug cakes is that the photographs on Pinterest are all lies. Despite that, this mug cake was absolutely delicious and I can’t wait to try out a different flavour.

1) in a mug place 2 heaped dessert spoons of Nutella, 1 dessert spoon of cocoa powder and 1 small-med egg.

2) whisk til smooth.

3) place in the microwave for 70 seconds. 

Try to wait a few mins before diving in as it’s boiling! 

  
Sorry for the awful picture – I only managed to get one after they’d been ravaged by my hockey team. These flapjacks are super easy, super tasty and healthy-ish.

1) in a pan melt 1 tsbp Nutella, 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp golden syrup.

2) mash 1 ripe banana into the mixture and then stir in 1 cup of oats. Add more if needed and stir til combined.

3) press into a lined baking tray and bake on 170 degrees C for 20 mins. 

4) leave to cool and chop. This made about 12 flapjacks. Or 6 big ones!

  
This is the best banana bread I’ve made. It tastes amazing warmed up and with a swipe of Nutella. I used this recipe but added less sugar. 

1)  with an electric whisk, cream together 2 tablespoons of butter and 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and 1/4 cup muscavado sugar.

2) mix in 2 mashed bananas and 1 egg.

3) stir in 1 full cup of wholewheat flour and 3 teaspoons of baking powder.

4) if needed, add 2 tablespoons of milk (I added 2 dessert spoons). Scrape into a lined loaf tin.

5) oven on 190 degrees C for 40-45 mins. 

Leave it in the tin for 10 minutes, then lift it out and have warm with peanut butter or Nutella (or both!).
