I find that it is very important to keep a routine during lockdown. If you think about the root of the word - French word route ‘road’ - everything makes sense.
A routine is a way to keep us centred and in a path, it helps us to get organized, keep our mental health tip-top and make sure that not all the days blur into one
One of the things I try to do to keep this routine is to make sure that the weekends are a little bit extra special. So after a long week of juggling homeschooling with work, Saturdays are a slow-down day for us. And because we have a bit more time we like to start them with a nice family breakfast eating homemade pancakes with dulce de leche.
100 gr flour
I love the 1,2,3 in the ingredients. Makes it easier to remember :)
Place the eggs and milk in a bowl
Sift the flour
Blend until everything is mixed
Add a little bit of butter to a pan (I use an 8inch one)
When hot, pour in some of the mix. I find that using a ladle gives me the perfect amount
Cook your pancakes for 1 min on each side or until golden, keeping them warm in a low oven as you go
As I come from Argentina I like my pancakes with dulce de leche (caramel).
You can find the caramel tins next to the condensed milk at the supermarket. I will share in future my dulce de leche recipe so you can make your own too.
I hope that you liked it and if you have any little rituals to make your days brighter during lockdown, I would love to hear from you!
