Friday Pretties: Weekend treat

We've made it!
Another weekend's just right around the corner and with it, the possibility for a special breakfast ...
My kids ask me to make american-style pancakes for a long time - now this weekend, we're gonna give it a try. These here, with fresh blueberrys, look especially good to me and i thought they'd qualify for a Friday Pretty!

Blueberry Pancakes
 115g plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 large eggs, separated
125ml milk
1/4 tsp salt
2 punnets fresh blueberries
oil for frying

Sieve the flour into a medium bowl and combine with baking powder. Make a well in the middle, add the egg yolks and milk and whisk to create a smooth batter, the consistency of double cream. Add more milk if the batter is too thick. Whisk the egg whites in a separate clean bowl with the salt, until they form stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites into the batter. Add one punnet of blueberries and mix them gently into the batter. Lightly oil and heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Pour two tablespoons of the batter into the pan and cook for about 2 minutes until bubbles start to form on the surface. Flip the pancake over and cook for further 1 minute, or until golden brown. Remove pancake from the pan and serve with a maple or golden syrup and some fresh blueberries.

  20. Guten Morgen Martina, these pancakes look oh so inviting. We have had lots of those last week. Must try the combo with blueberries soon!
    Ich wuensche dich a very very erg fijn weekend. It's rather cold, in Germany too It will be an indoor weekend. Love to you xxxxxxx

  21. These look wonderful! I was thinking about making pancakes on Sunday. I might have to add blueberries now!

  22. GOOD MORNING DEAREST MARTINA! Oh, thank you for your kind words to me my friend! I always want to BLAST my readers away with something special and full of love....but I realized that in feeling empty, I actually created something...funny how that works! Don't you just love that pink bath tub?????

    I THOUGHT OF YOUR with the first picture; it just looks like something you would enjoy. Snatch them if you wish!!!

    Oh, I cannot wait for our rooms to be done. My poor husband is trying to finish the painting himself and it is postponing a lot of other work. He has rescheduled the delivery of our last piece of furniture THREE TIMES because he is still painting! Then the builder needs to come to still finish some trim. SOon it will be done, and I think that once I feel organized again, I will feel as if my creative space is better organized. But in the time being, all is well....what are you doing this weekend dear one??? Anita

  23. Oh how I love to visit with you Martina! I love your world! And GO SWIMMING TONIGHT!!! Do you have a local gym that you go to? WE ARE FREEZING HERE! AND Ruben is still painting, but everything looks so good. It will be about another week until all painting is done!!! I CANNOT WAIT TO SHARE THE RESULTS!


  24. hello my lovely
