Honey Cloud Pancakes with Blueberry Syrup

Today I decided to make breakfast in bed for Andrew, but ended up making so much noise that he got up and ultimately started to help.

First I started with a blueberry syrup

1.5 cups of blueberries
1 cup sugar (I would prefer honey, but AJ likes sugar)
3tbs lime juice (you can use lemon too)
1/3 cup water

Bring blueberries to a boil and then let simmer on low until it thickens a bit.

Simply jar the rest!

Now for the Honey Cloud Pancakes, it has a nice ring to it huh?

  • 1 large egg and 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup of warmed milk
  • 1/4 cup of flour (plain will do, I used 00)
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons of honey
  • 1 dash of vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • Soft fruits
  • Honey
How to make them:
  1. Heat the oven to a little below 400
  2. Heat a small 6″ oven proof frying pan
  3. In one bowl whisk one egg white until it is white and peaky
  4. To make the main batter, in another bowl, mix the the other whole egg with flour, salt, honey, and vanilla then whisk in the warm milk
  5. Gently fold the egg white into the batter with a metal spoon
  6. Melt one tablespoon of butter in the hot pan
  7. Pour the batter in and cook on the hob for a few minutes until starting to set at the very edge
  8. Sprinkle some fruit on top if you wish, we decided not to 'cause of the syrup we made.
  9. Bake the whole lot in the hot oven for 7 minutes until puffed up and golden
  10. Drizzle with honey

I started off with the flour and egg...

Then I freaked out! I've never seen a gross bloody egg before. Andrew insisted we used it but as he was reading something online about how it's perfectly fine and edible I was flushing the thing. 

It pretty much went downhill from there...

 I think I added too much honey.
 It tasted really good- because of the blueberry syrup.

Then I made a meme on indesign! 
I like to think I'm a good cook, but somedays I just don't flow in the kitchen.
