Hey lovers! It is officially the month of love and with Valentine’s Day coming up I figured I should do something that you can share with your loved ones and these fluffy and decadent flapjacks were prefect! I felt love in every bite! Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
• 2 cups Flour
• 1 1/4 cup Milk
• 1/2 cup Sunflower Oil
• 4 tsp Baking Powder
• 2 Eggs
• 2 Tbsp Castor Sugar, or any sugar you’d like
• 1 Tbsp Vanilla Essence
• 1 Pinch of Salt
• As much food colouring as you’d like, to get your perfect shade of red
1. Crack the egg into a bowl and whisk together lightly. Once done, add the milk, vanilla essence, oil and red food colouring and mix until well incorporated.
2. In a separate bowl, sift the flour and baking powder, then add sugar and salt.
3. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk together until well combined. The mixture should be a relatively thick pouring consistency.
4. Set aside to rest for 10 minutes (whether this speaks to you or the batter, just rest- you probably need it- no? But the batter certainly does!)
5. Once you’re ready to cook the flapjacks, add a knob of batter (a little less than a tablespoon) to a medium hot pan and allow the butter to melt and start foaming.
6. Once it starts foaming, add tablespoons of the batter into the pan and cook for roughly 2 minutes or until bubbles start to appear on the surface.
7. Flip the flapjacks over and cook for another 30 seconds – 1 minute or until cooked through.
8. Repeat until the mixture is done.
Serving Suggestion: Serve warm with fresh berries of your choice and white chocolate sauce.
For those of you who are new to my blog, welcome! I’d like to apologise for my dry sense of humour (you witnessed that in #4) but I really can’t help myself😅. I hope you enjoy this recipe, and my blog! And please feel free to comment and share your questions/ thoughts with me, right here or on Instagram, I am @moleh_ .
And to people who aren’t new to this, you know I can’t love and leave you with no superfood info! So here you go: Strawberries are rich in B vitamin folate which is important for the production of red blood cells. They also contain ellagic acid, an antioxidant phytochemical which protects your skin from the damaging effects of the sun and are higher in vitamin C than oranges.
Raspberries are also packed with phythochemicals and vitamin C that support your skin and eye health. In addition to this, they have a low glycemic index which means they release sugar into your bloodstream slowly and this avoids spikes in blood sugar.
Til my next post,
Love, Light & Good Health✨
And Happy Valentine’s Day ❤️
