Pancakes might be the best thing in life, but I can never get them to look pretty - until I created the solution, oven baked pancakes!
Happy valentines day dear reader! First time we ever celebrated valentines day together with Anton I made an (according to myself) amazing brunch for him. It's funny to think back at what we used to eat, and see what a big change we'd made since then. I wouldn't serve that brunch food anymore, but I did know the way to his heart was through his stomach. Lol, just kidding, the way to everyones heart is through the stomach. Who wouldn't fall in love if you serve them food? There you go - free dating advice! Just kidding again, that will cost you 5 euros.
Anyways, this valentines day we're more low key, it doesn't really have to be champagne and strawberries on a Tuesday after 6 years, but instead it's nice to show the person you're with kindness and affection on regular weekend mornings (not on Tuesdays, this lady needs her sleep). My speciality that Anton loves is the classic banana pancake.
I'd make them a lot more often if I'd known earlier about this magical recipe (that I developed myself). I for one can't for the life of me make banana pancakes in a frying pan. It just turns into a big mess, and the pancakes stop being pancakes and become a mush blob of dough. It simply doesn't work. I know, I know, I'm bursting the bubble of the foodblogger myth.
But luckily I came up with a solution - oven baked pancakes. This method is faster, safer and foolproof.
If you have time and energy, make this amazing recipe for your loved one this weekend, it doesn't have to be Valentines day to show him/her that you care. And if your single, well, who better to impress and show love to then yourself - your number one hombre!
0,5 dl of cinnamon
1 tbsp of coconut oil

Easy like Sunday morning! Feel free to try out some exciting spices for the pancakes and let us know if there is some we should try next time we make them.
