Whether this qualifies as an obsession or not, I beginning to consider cornflakes as my new panko breadcrumbs. As it seems panko breadcrumbs is always in the “ran-out” status in my pantry, my fall back “crunchy agent” is cornflakes.
It is as if I haven’t had enough cornflakes related recipes, through sheer luck, I found an 80s preloved cookbook showcasing cereals in cookery. How cool is this??
One this you should know about this cornflakes pancakes is despite these are called pancakes, the recipe doesn’t contain any baking powder and bicarb. Therefore don’t expect these to be fluffy like your usual pancakes. The batter (you’ll see it on the photo below) is crepe-like batter. Therefore, these will turn out like thicker-version of savory crepes which will go FANTASTICALLY AWESOME with bacons ( I can only imagine). If you don’t eat bacon like me, you can try with smoked salmon or in this case with sunny side up eggs. Any suggestions about the toppings will be very much appreciated! 🙂
Have a good weekend everyone!
