- Green pancakes

What to say about my long absence on my blog ? Well…nothing really except that I took it a bit more easy, blog talking at least.

Apart from that it was actually busy for the last few months. New customers I cooked for, I made a lot of canapés, started to make breakfast and lunches for corporate and still working at the restaurant.

August was awful, I had the chance to escape to Holland and South of France to see a bit of sun and avoid depression. Notting Hill carnival has been spoilt by the rain and cold, and as always, every time I start to be upset with London and like it a bit less, something nice happens, like if London wanted to be forgiven. So September was very nice and sunny. London is so forgiven as I love it so much, still. Autumn is here, it’s freezing already, I am back to normal and preparing Christmas.

Green pancakes
serves 4

Easy, quick, no food coloring or other fake things, no butter either.

  • 110g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • 150ml of milk
  • 300g of baby spinach
  • Olive oil, for frying

For the batter, put the flour, baking powder, egg and salt together in a mixing bowl, and whisk until smooth. Set it aside while you blend the spinach.

Add the spinach to the batter et c’est tout !

Pour a little oil into a heavy frying pan and place on medium-high heat. For each pancake, ladle two to or three tablespoons of batter depends on how big you want them.

They are thick, hearty, so green and delicious, perfect for the season and perfect for a pre Christmas period.
