Pancakes

Pancakes

Making pancakes is a quick and easy task, but making them in your thermomix is quicker and easier than usual!  They are ready for cooking within 1 minute, although it is good for the batter to rest for at least 15 minutes if you have the time.

 

Ingredients

370g plain flour

3½ teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

1 egg

500g milk

Method

Add all ingredients to thermomix bowl and mix for 10 seconds on speed 6

Place butter into heated pan and allow to melt

Pour batter into heated pan, I usually do one big pancake at a time, but you can do as many and as big as you like.  Wait for bubbles to appear on the surface of your pancake, then flip and cook the other side until lightly golden

Serve with maple syrup (our favourite), or strawberry jam or lemon juice and a sprinkle of sugar – Yum!!

Dippy Eggs

 Did you used to have dippy eggs with toast soldiers when you were a kid?  My kids love when I make them now, and it is so easy with the thermomix – no longer do you have to guess how many minutes to leave them on the stove for.  Perfect eggs every time!

Dippy Eggs

Ingredients

Method

Place water in thermomix bowl and place eggs in the basket (the basket will fit about 7 large eggs)

Cook for 10 minutes at varoma temperature on speed 1

Cut off top of egg and place in egg cup and serve with toast soldiers
