Breakfast pancakes are so versatile. For sweet pancakes, leave out the savoury flavourings and add a spoonful of sugar and handful of blueberries to the batter.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
155g chorizo, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon oregano leaves
200g self-raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
pinch freshly ground black pepper
5 large eggs
240ml full-fat milk
100g coarsely grated halloumi
olive oil, for frying

Method

  1. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and fry the chorizo until it starts to crisp up and release its oils. Stir in the oregano. Remove the chorizo with a slotted spoon, reserving the pan oils for drizzling, and set aside to cool. Wipe the pan for use later.
  2. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper into a large bowl. Make a well in the middle, whisk 1 egg and the milk in a jug and pour half the mixture into the well. Stir with a wooden spoon, drawing in the flour, then add the remaining milk. Fold through the grated halloumi and two-thirds of the chorizo.
  3. Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add 3 heaped tablespoons of the mixture, shape into rounds and fry for 2–3 minutes or until large bubbles appear on the surface. Flip and continue to fry until golden and cooked through. Repeat with the remaining batter and oil, keeping each batch loosely covered with foil.
  4. Heat a little oil in the pan you used to cook the chorizo and crack in the remaining eggs. Fry for 2 minutes over medium heat.
  5. To serve, stack three pancakes on top of one another. Top with a fried egg and spoon over the reserved chorizo and its oil, and serve.
