A joyous pancake for when you're having an existential crisis.
I saw a post on Instagram about an oven pancake and spent about five days dreaming out it. Actually it’s one of the reasons why I’ve had to stop looking at Instagram right before I go to sleep because I look at photos of food and then suddenly start feeling really hungry. I don’t know what that says about me. Anyway, after the basement situation, as we were trudging back to the tube station in the rain at 11am on a Monday morning, I decided to take matters into my own hands and make myself an oven pancake as emotional eating is my favourite kind of eating.
Meltdown oven pancake Serves: I ate all of myself because I needed a pick-me-up. It could serve two if you have someone who you love enough in your life to share it with. Ingredients:
½ tbsp butter 60g plain flour 120ml milk 2 eggs, beaten 1 tsp caster sugar ½ tsp cinnamon ½ tsp vanilla extract A pinch of salt A handful of blueberries
1. Preheat the oven to 220C. Put the butter into a cake tin or an oven dish and pop into the oven until the butter has melted. 2. In the meanwhile, whisk the flour, milk, eggs, caster sugar, cinnamon, vanilla extract and salt together. Then add in the blueberries. 3. Pour the mixture into the hot butter and bake for about 20-25 mins until the pancake is golden and a skewer inserted into it comes out clean. Dust with icing sugar and honey if you wish. Then eat it and remember that you never have to go back to that temp job again.
