Limy breackfast

           As of today i'm entering my "breakfast" phase! to clear things : winter is my dinner phase, spring and summer are my breakfast phase :) wich mean the main focus is on breakfast and brunch food , and today i'll give you an easy citrusy flavored recipe :

Lime and lemon pancakes and syrup, you need to make the syrup the day before.

 Pancake recipe

for 6 pancakes :

1 egg
1 cup of  sifted flour
3/4 cup of milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup lime juice
1 lime zest


put all ingredients in a glass bowl, mix untill all combined, you dont need to work all the lumps .
grease a hot skillet , pour the mixture with a soup ladle, one pancake at the time,  let cook for 1 minutes on each side, or until the edges are brown.

serve hot with butter, fruits if wanted and syrup .

Lime Syrup:

for a small bottle

150g white sugar
2 tbsp honey
half a cup of water
half a cup of mixed lime juice and lemon juice
1 lime and 1 lemon skins

preparing: in a sauce pan mix all ingredients and wisk until the sugar is disolved. then put on a very low heat for about 20 to 30 minutes( or more until the syrup is thick enough for you ) remove the skins and let cool a bit before  pouring  it in the serving bottle. keep in the fridge and use it in the next few days .

         I'm not very good with mesuring and exact  details as i always forget to take notes when trying new recipes , so please taste and be very careful with cooking times( check if it needs less or more minutes to cook)

hope you'll enjoy this recipe ! tell me what you think if you try it .

have a lovely time
