Not everyone has time in the morning to make a homemade breakfast but when you do the usual sleepy heads in your household wake up to the heavenly aromas produced. I don’t particularly like eating breakfast, but I do like cooking breakfast especially for those who do enjoy eating it. These flapjacks are possibly the tastiest ones I have tried and turn out great every time. Juicing the berries can provide all the syrup your need if you make them the night before and leave in the fridge till morning. But my guys were born with an extra sweet tooth and prefer the added touch of maple syrup. There were no complaints when I cooked these at the office last week, rather the silence of those with their mouths stuffed with flapjacks.
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 tablespoon of sugar
- 2 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 egg (beaten)
- 1 mashed banana
- 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
- ½ cup of fresh strawberries (hulled & diced)
- ⅓ cup of fresh blueberries
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 1 cup of whipped topping
- Maple syrup
- Mix strawberries, blueberries and sugar together in a bowl, stir 1 minute till berries look wet and start to make juice. Chill in fridge till flapjacks are ready.
- Mix flour, sugar and baking powder together. In a separate bowl mix together milk, beaten egg, mashed banana and vegetable oil. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir till just combined. Add a tablespoon of oil to pan and preheat on medium heat. Pour flapjack batter in 4” circles in pan. Cook till bubbles start to appear checking underneath to make sure flapcakes do not overcook. Flip carefully, and cook till flapjacks are springy to touch. Cook rest of batter this way, recipe should yield 6 - 8 flapjacks depending on size.
- Top with juiced berries and whipped topping. Drizzle with maple syrup to taste. Enjoy!!
