Pancake for breakfast and the most easiest cake in the world

Usually we are having pancakes on Sunday, however today I wanted to make an exception as a small surprise for Valentine´s Day. There is no special tradition for Valentine´s Day in our house, we would have a nice breakfast, having either a nice picknick outside or having a dinner in one of our favorite restaurants. There will be chocolate and flowers, the usual things, but still we like to celebrate this day, spending time together and be delighted about the small gifts we will get.



Today´s morning started with pancakes and salmon avocado sandwiches (you can find the recipe in one of my previous posts here). The weather is not very promising, so there probably won´t be a picknick outside....for now we will just take it easy, enjoying the chocolate and see what the day will bring.


Pancakes

  • 130 g flour
  • 1-2 tablespoons sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 ml milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter (melted)
In a medium bowl whisk together flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Add eggs and milk, start whisk from the middle til everything is well combined (no clumps), add melted butter and mix again.
Preheat the pan, add a bit of vegetable oil and distribute evenly over the whole pan (I am usually using a paper towel to do this). Pour small amounts of the batter in the pan, turn the pancake as soon as bubbles start to form on the top, cook it for another half a minute..
Serve the pancakes still warm with honey, fruits of your choice or powdered sugar.

Now coming back to Valentine´s Day. Wanna to surprise your better half with something nice and self made, but you are not really a baker or not having much time to spend in the kitchen?!? If so, then you would love this cake recipe. Chocolaty, very easy to make, requires just 3 ingredients and is actually quite special. I assure you, the surprise will be a success and your better half will be delighted....


World easiest chocolate cake (gluten free)
  • 75 g dark chocolate
  • 2 eggs
  • fresh berries (strawberry, blueberry, raspberry) 
Preheat the oven to 180C. Melt the chocolate and put it aside to cool down. Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Add egg yolks to the cooled chocolate and mix everything together till well combined. Beat the egg whites till stiff pick are start to form. Combine the egg whites with the chocolate mixture, use a spatula to do this.
Pour the batter in a baking form (I am using a small cake form for this batter amount) and bake for 20-25 minutes. Decorate with berries and powdered sugar


Enjoy!
