Blueberry breakfast pancakes (and some with chocolate)

Every time I when I browse through other blogs or cooking/recipe site and I see these pancakes I think “oooh, I really have to make these one morning”

Well, this morning was a slow morning and it was raining, the prefect blueberry pancake moment. Of course it would not have been me, if I would not also slipped in some chocolate somewhere….

These are extremely easy to make, what you need it is:

200 gr selfraining flower                 a pinch of salt

1 tsp baking powder                           1 egg

300 ml milk                                          a tbsp of butter

a handful of blueberries                    a handful of raisins

some finely chopped chocolate        butter of oil for frying

The full recipe I got on the BBC food website: but when I made to batter I divided it two bowls, in one I added the blueberries and the other the chocolate and raisins.

So easy to make and absolutely delicious!

Enjoy, and have a nice weekend!!

If life gives you lemons…

…make a lemon drizzle cake

But first I have to tell you what a bad girl I am; About two weeks ago I  while I was waiting for my take away, I was reading a magazine in which I found a four page article with cake recipes amongst which this lemon cake recipe

which looked delicious, and I got that greedy feeling that I just had to have these recipes. 
 so as sneakily as possible I tried to rip out inch by inch while people around me enjoyed their diner, and before I had the whole thing my order was ready…  

I had to try a sort of Houdini article trick, and thanked kindly for the food. I know it was not my most decent moment, but I could not help myself.

As for the actual cake, my sister invited my family and ourselves over for an easter brunch, and this light lemon cake seemed like a good addition for the afternoon.

It was a great afternoon, with lovely food; of course eggs,  freshly baked bread and delicious cheeses then a little “tea break” when we were entertained by my sisters’ cats Russel & Jacky

In round two we had fresh fruit with cream & lemon cake which I also served with lemon curd mixed with mascarpone.

Besides of course for lemons, you need 3 eggs, flower, baking powder, almonds & milk.

But to prevent you getting into the same situation as I did I found the recipe online here

my addition to this recipe is some grounded chocolate in between the dough
