2 egg yolks lightly whisked
½ cup milk

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl until well combined and a thick batter forms
Allow the mixture to stand for approximately 30 mins
Heat a non stick frying pan over a medium heat
Spoon a generous tablespoon of the mixture in the frypan to make a pattie shape and fry on both sides until golden.

    Hi Sherilyn, I love your style of cooking! It suits me to a tea :) Every single recipe you've posted up is beautiful! Looks like there a few things I must try besides these gorgeous savoury pancakes (like your millet bars, brazil nut balls and pecan+strawberry friands! Yum yum :)

  5. Really beautiful presentation, I love the little mound of greens on top of the pancakes.

  6. All the flavors in these pancakes sound so good. I just found your blog and it's lovely!

  7. Great recipe, I love the flavour combination!

  8. Yum, I love the idea of savoury pancakes with vegetable goodness inside! They look scrumptious too!

  9. These look absolutely delicious! I was jut curious--is there anything that could be subsituted for the quinoa flakes? I can't imagine using a whole box of them (so it probably wouldn't be worth buying it), but would love to make these pancakes!
