Honey Cloud Pancakes

These are so pretty and great for a healthy Weekend breakfast treat:

A light as a cloud, honey pancake that has whipped egg white folded in for extra oomph.

This recipe, though simple, is proving to be THE most pinned and posted recipe that I have ever done. It seems to be very popular as a Gluten Free breakfast option. Just swap the plain flour for GF flour and souffle away!

To make a single serving pancake you will need:

  • 1 large egg and 1 egg white
  • 1/4 cup of warmed milk
  • 1/4 cup of flour (plain will do, I used 00, or you can use GF)
  • 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 200°C (which I gather is around 392°F)
  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 (stove top) for a few minutes until starting to set at the very edge
  8. Sprinkle some fruit on top
  9. Bake the whole lot in the hot oven for 7 minutes until puffed up and golden
  10. Drizzle with honey

Double it all up and use a full size pan if you want to share.

Buoyed by the success of these beauties I made a Winter Souffle Omelette then I made this caramel apple cloud version and then someone even Painted it!
