3 Ingredient Pancakes

3-Ingredient Pancakes recipe

There’s never enough pancake recipes, is there?

That’s exactly what came to my mind when I noticed this recipe for 3 ingredient pancakes. The title itself looked so interesting that I knew I had to give them a try.

And the result?

I like these a lot!

Are you curious what might those magical 3 ingredients be? I sure have the answer for you…

 

3-Ingredient Pancakes recipe

It’s a banana, eggs and a little bit of cinnamon. Such small number of ingredients can indeed result in flavorful and yummy pancakes. The bananas make them sweet enough to just eat plain.

As the original recipe says, the ingredients make these pancakes really high in protein, low calorie, gluten-free, paleo friendly and taste really good! And I agree.

1. To make the pancakes, in a bowl, combine the banana, eggs and cinnamon.

Super Quick Peach Squares

super quick peach squares recipe

These squares! They might be the most delicious dessert I’ve prepared this summer, I think. In fact, I am in love with everything about them – the way how the airy and moist texture of the sponge plays with the refreshingly tart and sweet quality of the summer fruit, that way how the crunchy streusel layer on top makes you stop eating for a while just to say ‘mmm’ and I definitely love the fact that this whole dessert is absolutely easy to make.

I am sure you would love these too…

1. To prepare your Super Quick Peach Squares, first preheat the oven to 350 °F (175 °C).

2. To make the batter, in a bowl, whisk together the flour (2 3/4 cups + 2 tbsp – 400 grams), confectioners sugar (1 1/4 cups -150 grams) and baking powder (3 tsp).

3. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla extract, vegetable oil and milk.

4. In a few batches, pour the flour mixture into the bowl containing the wet ingredients. Mix until just combined.

5. Line a baking pan with parchment paper (you can first brush the pan with a bit of vegetable oil to make the paper adhere better). I used a 13x8x2-inch (11-cup) pan. I think that larger pan might work even better resulting in a little less tall squares.

6. Pour the batter in the pan and smooth out the surface.

7. Stone and cut the fruit into about 1/2-inch (1.3 cm) cubes or slightly bigger. Place the fruit on top of the batter.

8. Finally prepare the streusel. To do so, in a bowl combine the all-purpose flour (1/3 cup – 50 grams), butter (3 1/2 tbsp – 50 grams) and confectioners sugar (1/2 cup – 50 grams). Using your fingers or a pastry blender (cutter), create a crumbly mixture.

9. Sprinkle the crumbly mixture over the fruit.

Crêpes With Pastry Cream And Strawberries

crepes with strawberries and pastry cream recipe

Crêpes have always been a very dear-to-the-heart dessert here in our household. We just love them to bits. This recipe or this recipe or this recipe might be a good proof of that.

When I recently stumbled upon a recipe that used pastry cream for a crêpe filling I became quite intrigued to learn what this thing called ‘pastry cream’ might be. And why have my crêpes been missing it all those years? As it turned out, the pastry cream is a simple-to-prepare vanilla custard. It tastes very lovely. And with the addition of fresh fruit, it will turn your crêpes into a finger licking summery treat! Recommended! Yum, yum!

Here’s how you can make this recipe too…

 

crepes with strawberries and pastry cream recipe

1. To make the pastry cream, in a medium saucepan or pot, combine the milk, little bit of the sugar and the vanilla bean cut in half lengthwise. Place the pot over medium heat.

2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, beat the eggs with the remaining sugar until the mixture has lightened in color. Then add the flour and cornstarch. Whisk again to combine.

3. When the milk is steaming and almost boiling, remove the vanilla bean halves, scrape the seeds out and add the seeds back into the milk mixture. Whisk to combine. Then pour the hot milk over the egg mixture, a few tablespoons at a time, whisking constantly, until the mixture is homogeneous. Transfer the mixture back to the pot and continue whisking constantly until the mixture has thickened and boiled for a good minute.

4. Take the mixture off the heat. Let cool. Then transfer to the fridge and let cool completely.

5. Prepare the crêpe batter by whisking together all the ingredients. Cook the crêpes in a buttered or oiled preheated cast-iron or a non-stick pan on medium heat.

6. To serve, top each crêpe with a generous dollop of pastry cream and lots of strawberries.
