'Scotch' or 'American' pancakes are much thicker than the popular crepe style pancakes, and are traditionally eaten with butter and jam spread on top, or if you're from Canada, we believe they're particularly partial to serving them with maple syrup and crispy bacon as featured in last year's Ovenclean pancake recipe! But, with Lent just around the corner, and chocolate regularly topping the list of things given up for the 40 day fasting period, we thought what better way to kick it off, than with a chocolate overload pancake recipe! Ingredients: 250g plain flour 30g cocoa powder 2 x eggs 2 tsp baking powder 280ml milk 2 tbsp caster sugar 2 tbsp butter, plus a little extra for frying Pinch of salt Jar of Nutella, or any other chocolate-based spread! Mixed berries - optional Method: 1. Melt the butter and put to one side to cool.
We may be coming to the end of January, but hopefully your healthy eating is still going strong?! If you need that extra bit of motivation, our competition is running until 31st January so there is still chance for you to win a juicer! We gave you some great detoxing recipes at the beginning of the month, but you may be struggling to stay on the straight and narrow by this point so we’ve found some tantalisingly tasty treats that are low in calories. You’re welcome! Mango-Lime Ice This naturally fat free dish is a clever way of beating your cravings for sweet things! It’s definitely one to remember for the summer months too.
As part of an Ovenclean service we can easily restore the shine to your oven racks along with the rest of the oven: interior, glass, hob and all. But we understand the need to keep things shiny between deep cleans.
Now that Christmas is over and you’ve devoured all the boxes of chocolate you were given (and bought for yourself!) over the festive period – it’s time to get back on the healthy eating train! We’ve been searching for the best recipes to help you detox this year and to give you an added incentive – you can enter our competition to win yourself a juicer, which should get you well on your way! Ruby Tuesday We love this beetroot infused juice and we think the ginger and pineapple give it a lovely unique flavour! The recipe lists all of the great benefits of beetroot including reducing high blood pressure and increasing oxygen uptake – sounds like a winner to us. Strawberry - Cucumber Juice Fancy a fruity little number to start your day? This could be the recipe for you! Filled with a delicious combination of fruit and vegetables, we’re particularly drawn to this recipe because of the juicy strawberries! Breakfast in Bangkok We’re not sure if it’s the title or the ingredients that make this juice one of our faves! Another entry for ginger, this root vegetable is a great source of potassium and gives the juice a great flavour.
We may all still cook (and eat) far too much over the festive period, but thanks to programmes like Huge Fearnley Whittingstall’s ‘War on Waste’, attitudes are definitely changing. We’ve scoured the internet and found some simple, flavoursome recipes to ensure everyone can do their bit with a guilt-free conscience.
