If there one thing that we cannot avoid when reuniting with friends on a holiday, it’s brunch! Manchester offers a lot of delicious brunches if you want to eat out, but as Corinne wanted a waffle maker for a long time and just ordered one, we thought it was a good time for homemade brunch and try new recipes!
Our Favourite Sunday Brunch Recipes
As we had just received Corinne’s waffle maker we had to make waffles. And we had a specific recipe in mind! We also wanted to make pancakes, but pancakes are often heavy on the stomach, and as we were already making waffles we thought we could try a new type of pancake: Courgette Pancakes. The last recipe we wanted to try was a ice-cream recipe! But it’s so delicious and easy to make that we thought it was best to keep that recipe for another time, and give this recipe its own blogpost 😉
Healthy Courgette Pancakes
- 55g self-raising flour
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 courgettes
- Mix the flour, eggs & milk together in a bowl.
- Grate your courgettes and add them to the batter. Mix well, so the courgette is well coated in batter.
- In a hot & greased frying pan add 2 tablespoons of the mixture and flatten a little.
- Once bubbles start popping at the surface of your pancake and the bottom of your pancake is brown flip it (approximately 2 min)
- Cook the other side for an extra 2 minutes
Serve with some rocket, roasted cherry tomatoes & baked beans.
Light, yet delicious, Super Fluffy Waffles
- 125g self-self-rasing flour
- 25 sugar
- 2 eggs
- 20g melted butter
- 125cl milk
- Mix in a bowl the flour, the sugar, the egg yolk and the melted butter
- Slowly add the milk to the batter and mix until fully incorporated
- Whip the egg whites to a light mousse then mix it with the batter
- Put a ladleful of dough on the waffle maker and let cook each waffle for three to four minutes.
Serve with strawberries, ice-cream & golden sirup.
