So since our days of just the two of us, one of our favourite Saturday morning routines is to enjoy a slow leisurely breakfast together as a family.
I’m a big fan of Macdonald’s hotcakes. I just find their texture so irresistibly fluffy and light. I’ve tried numerous times to re-create the same fluffiness in my homemade pancakes but always to no avail… until recently when I discovered a magic ingredient… 7-up!
And best of all, this simple recipe falls under my four ingredients category! So here’s the recipe…
Super light and fluffy 7-Up pancakes
1 cup milk
1/2 cup 7-Up/Sprite*
1 cup self-raising flour
(*Can substitute Sprite/7-Up with any fizzy lemon drink or carbonated water)
Whisk eggs, milk and 7-Up/Sprite together until light and frothy. Add in flour and mix well together. Ladle 1/3 cupfuls onto a greased hot pan or griddle and cook until golden brown on one side, then flip over and cook for 30-45 seconds until golden brown on the other side.
Serve warm with favourite spreads and toppings.
Makes approximately 4-6 servings… depends on how hungry your troops are. Best be prepared with a little extra batter for backup. I started out with about half the amount of batter in the recipe, but ended up having to mix up a second batch for my two hungry boys at breakfast.
