KINDNESS--with drinks and food

Did you know it is the kindness month

It is a lovely idea and so important to think about offering food or a drink as part of this

My local hospital is offering  refreshments to visitors and staff which leads up to good hydration

pancakes --healthy ones


This recipe is from Diabetes uk but i have slightly adapted it

  • 100g plain flour --iI often use self raising flour 
  • Pinch of salt --often omit this
  • 1 egg, beaten --I may use 2 if small or medium
  • 300ml skimmed milk
  • 1 tsp rapeseed oil

Sift the flour and salt if used --beat in the milk and egg. Let stand for at least an hour --I often keep it in a jug overnight in the fridge.
Heat the oil in a pan so really hot add about a tablespoon of  the mix and tilt the pan so it covers it evenly .When golden brown.  Flip over with a spatula or toss if you are brave 

Eat while hot 

Lovely with stewed fruit or a dusting of a granular low calorie sweetener
