Do you remember the time in high school when life was so young and free? Back then, some of my friends said they did not want to marry early and maintain their independence. Strangely enough, time changes us. The girl T., who seemed to have the strongest idea and will of being an independent woman, actually married first among all the girls. And she is surely happy with her little daughter B., who is like an angel! Motherhood seems to be such a wonderful thing since I have seen my friends change so much for the better around their newborns…
It seems that with my friend T., her main concern right now is how to feed and `entertain´ her child properly. To help her and other mothers from afar, I made this ABC pancakes.
The inspiration is not from me really. I saw it on this website and thought it was cool. I had fun making it and sharing with the adults living with me. We all loved them. Ah.. There is a child in everyone of us ;).
Slightly adapted from here
200g self-raising flour
2 tbs maple syrup
310ml (1 1/4 cups) milk
1 egg, lightly whisked
Olive oil spray, to grease
Jam, to serve
Sift the flour, baking powderinto a large bowl and make a well in the centre.
Whisk together the milk, maple syrup and egg in a jug. Pour into the flour mixture and whisk until a smooth batter forms.
Heat a large non-stick frying pan over low heat. Lightly spray with olive oil spray to grease. Spoon half the batter into a small plastic bag. Cut 1 corner off bag and pipe four 8cm letters into pan. Cook for 2 minutes or until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn and cook for a further 1 minute or until golden. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining batter, reheating pan between batches. Serve with jam.
