Here at Fuss Free Flavours we are huge fans of the first meal of the day – I run a monthly breakfast event where I challenge bloggers to create a breakfast to a theme and to link up.
I find that if I start the day with a good breakfast I concentrate better, am far more productive and generally have a far better day.
The folks at Yakult also love a good breakfast and they have recently launched the Brighter Breakfast, packed full of delicious and inspiring breakfast recipes, suitable for weekdays and more relaxed weekends, as well as a fun breakfast selector. It is well worth a look and they have some fab breakfast related prizes to be won too.
Two of their recipes that caught my eye are below:
- ½ Red chilli
- 1 Spring onion
- Fresh ginger (grated)
- 2 Eggs
- Sesame seeds - black and white (toasted)
- 1 tsp Sunflower oil.
- Finely chop the chilli and fry in a little oil with the ginger.
- Crack the two eggs into the pan, and as soon as they start to cook, top with spring onions and lastly the sesame seeds.
- Serve immediately.
Pancakes with ricotta, honey and figs
- 135 g Plain flour
- 1 tsp Baking powder
- ½ tsp Salt
- 2 tbsp Caster sugar
- 130 ml Milk
- 1 Large egg
- 2 tbsp Butter
- 4 Figs
- 200 g Ricotta
- 2 tbsp Honey
- Put the baking powder, flour, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl.
- In a jug, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.
- Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and beat until you have a nice smooth batter, then let it stand for a few minutes.
- Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter.
- When it's melted, add a ladle of batter. It should be nice and thick – when it’s cooked it will be light and airy.
- Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about 1cm thick.
- Repeat until all the batter is used up.
- Keep the cooked pancakes in a warm oven while you are cooking the rest.
- Serve stacked up with ricotta and figs between each pancake, and then drizzle the stack with honey.
