Biscoff pancakes

The chain letter has made a comeback in recent weeks with Instagram story shout outs, Facebook posts and WhatsApp messages soaring into our eye line. One that lured me in within seconds for the #QuarantineCookbook chain asking all who were sent the message to send a simple recipe using kitchen cupboard staples to six friends.

I scoured my contacts to send the chain to and got a few crackers in return. Fellow food blogger Pancakes and Polaroids (a.k.a Kirsty) delivered the goods with her Biscoff pancakes recipe.

Thick and fluffy pancakes piled up high and lathered in a delicious Biscoff creme – sounds perfect right? Add a quick, no fuss recipe to the mix and this is a heavenly plate to make indeed.

What you need:

For the pancakes:

  • 280ml milk
  • 225g self raising flour
  • 55g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp golden syrup
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate soda
  • Pinch of salt

For the Biscoff Creme

  • 1 tsp Lotus Biscoff spread
  • 2 tbsp natural or greek yogurt

How to make:

  1. Keep the milk to one side and in a large mixing bowl, add the rest of the pancake ingredients and mix together.
  2. While you mix, add in the milk bit by bit (you might not need it all) until you get a nice thick consistency that easily falls off the spoon but will still hold a pancake shape in the pan.
  3. Grab a frying pan and add to a medium heat. Once the heat is up, add a knob of butter to grease the pan.
  4. Take a teaspoon of the pancake batter and add to the pan. This will be your tester pancake (the first one is always a dud!).
  5. Tester pancake out the way, you’re ready to start making your batch. Rule of thumb is to make the pancakes one by one to ensure each is perfectly baked.
  6. Add a generous dollop of the batter to the pan and when a good amount of bubbles form on the top, the pancake is ready to flip and cook for another minute or two.
  7. Repeat this process until all your batter is used. This recipe should make six pancakes but depends on the size of your pancakes of course.
  8. Now onto the creme. Mix the Biscoff spread and yogurt together until completely combined. Taste to check if it is sweet enough and add more Biscoff is needed.
  9. Stack your pancakes and drizzle over the creme. Get creative with other toppings add chocolate, Biscoff crumb, fruit, biscuits, granola, ice cream – the floor is yours!
