Berry and Apple Pancakes

Mmm one Sunday I had a hankering for pancakes and I thought I'd mix it up a bit and throw in some berries and grated apples and it worked a treat!

You'll need :
1 cup (250g) self-raising flour
1 egg
1 1/2 cups milk
40g butter
2 apples grated
200g frozen mixed berries
1 tablespoon of caster sugar
I cup of ricotta
Mixed berries, extra, to serve

Place the flour in a large bowl and make a well in the centre.
Add the egg and milk and stir until well combined.
Fold in grated apples .

Melt half the butter in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat.
Spoon 1/4 cup (60ml) of pancake mixture into the pan .
Cook for 1 minute or until bubbles appear on the surface and pancakes are golden underneath. Turn and cook for 1 minute or until golden underneath.
Transfer to a plate and cover with foil. Repeat with remaining batter,
greasing pan between each batch.

Place the berries in a saucepan over a gentle heat and slowly add the sugar,
stir until sugar is dissolved. To serve stack pancakes and dollop ricotta on top,
then lastly spoon over berries.

Green Thumb

I was feeling a bit green so i decided to try my luck with a little home grown herb garden!

You will need:

x1 bag of potting mix
x1 wooden box or other pot/planter box of some sort
garden tools suck as small shovel and fork
3-4 potted herbs

Pop some holes in the bottom of the box if it doesn't already have them, then simply pour the potting mix into the box until it is almost full.

Make wells in the soil, remove the herbs from the pots and place in the holes, add a tad more potting mix and press the soil until it is firm and the plants are sitting upright.

And there you have a cute little herb garden, I used these lovely little garden labels from
Little Jane Street!
