Pancakes with wild thyme scented honey
My recipe for these pancakes is very easy and simple to make, the honey and olive oil syrup is the star in this recipe that's for sure. Moroccans use this honey for almost all their pancake and flaky bread recipes. The first time I ever tried this I fell in love. I can no longer eat pancakes with syrup from a jar.
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup milk
1 large egg
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
butter for the pan
4 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons olive oil (first press taste best)
1 tablespoon time (I used wild thyme in my recipe)
1 teaspoon butter (optional)
Sift all your dry pancake ingredients in a large bowl, set aside. In a medium bowl beat your egg, milk, and oil. Pour the wet ingredients into your dry ingredients and gently mix until combined. The mix should still have a few small lumps, if you over beat this batter you will get rubbery pancakes. Heat your pan over medium heat, brush with butter before making each pancake. Using a small ladle or scoop, pour about 1/4 cup of pancake batter onto the pan. When the bottoms of the pancakes are brown and bubbles start to appear on the top surfaces of the pancakes (2-3 minutes), turn over. Cook until lightly browned (about 1-2 minutes).
Mix all your syrup ingredients in a small heavy duty pan, whisk until the syrup comes to a gentle boil. Pour your syrup over the warm pancakes while its still hot. Enjoy.
