Seeing as how Valentine’s Day falls on a Monday this year, most people are going to be hard-pressed to spoil their loved ones on the day. So if you’re anything like me and want to make a day out of anything, you’re probably thinking, “Sunday brunch!”.
Well, because I believe that sometimes celebrating a romantic day with a loved one calls for something familiar and comforting – because it’s a day for you too. For the past couple of years I’ve been trying all sorts of fancy breakfasts and getting stressed out trying to get them right, so this year I’m trying for the familiar.
Sure-fire fluffy pancakes:
1 cup plain flour
3/4 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup milk
This one’s easy.
Mix all the dry ingredients.
Make a well in the centre.
Mix in wet ingredients.
If the mixture’s a little runny, add a little more milk. You can use a ladle if you want, but I used an old, washed out pancake shake bottle to pour out heart shapes in my medium-heated pan.
Serve with hulled strawberries and yoghurt, with a maplesyrupgoldensyrupicingsugaranythingyouwant!
And, if you have the cookie cutters/cupcake moulds, you can go nuts with the usual – bacon, eggs, sandwiches. Just remember to have a good day and enjoy yourself too.
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!!
