The Best Christmas Breakfast

Christmas morning is often a time of family traditions. It usually involves getting up early to jump on everyone else's bed then opening your stocking and gifts, but other traditions can also be attending church, going for walk or visiting other relatives. But of course there is always the food...many families have a special Christmas morning breakfast. Traditionally in my family I would get up early, jump on my mum and dads bed, open stocking and gifts and then help cook a big grill up for everyone. But this year as we are having our first family Christmas in our new home we thought we would begin some new traditions with PANCAKES.

Get your Christmas off to the best start with these light and fluffy pancakes. I love these pancakes so much because you can add any topping from honey and Greek yoghurt, bacon and maple syrup, or chocolate chips. These pancakes are so versatile and what could be better than chocolate chips in your pancakes on Christmas morning!!! 

To make these, you will need:

3 large eggs
115g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
140ml milk 
A pinch of salt


Your first task is to try and separate the eggs in to different bowls. Add the plain flour, baking powder and milk to the bowl with the yolks and mix ingredients into a smooth thick batter. Whisk the whites with the salt until they form stiff peaks. You will need to bare in mind that if you are whisking by hand it will take a while, so a mixer or electric whisk would be great. Who wants a work out on Christmas? 

Fold the egg white mixture into the batter and then heat a non-stick pan on a medium heat, try not adjust the heat as you don't want to burn your Christmas pancakes.

Pour your batter into the heated pan and fry a few minutes until it looks golden brown and firm. It's during this step that you may want to add your ingredients whether it's blueberries, bacon or chocolate chips. Once your pancakes look firm, flip them and let them cook for a few minutes.
