Making Green-pepper & Onion Flapjacks

I was still away from home, visiting a friend who was going through a rough patch. One slow Saturday morning, we awoke a little later than usual and it was well passed breakfast time before we finally made our way to the kitchen. Supplies were running low and it was time to hit the shops. I scrounged around before coming up with the idea to use our last egg to make us some flapjacks for brunch. We had one green-pepper and a few onions left. I decided to add this to the batter and quite accidentally developed a very delicious variation on this trusted favorite. Of course I photographed the whole process for possible blogging purposes!

Finely chop up one onion and half a green-pepper.

Fry the onion in some oil.

I used a very large green-pepper and therefore used only half. If yours is smaller, you may opt to use the whole pepper. Finely chop this and fry with the onions.

Add the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl. You will need 2 cups (500 ml) cake flour, 4 teaspoons (20 ml) baking powder and 1 teaspoon (5 ml) salt.

We add a little more flavour with the addition of 2 teaspoons (10 ml) crushed garlic and 1 teaspoon (5 ml) Italian Herbs.

Now add two cups (500 ml) milk, 2 tablespoons (25 ml) cooking oil and 1 egg.

Mix the batter well and then stir in the fried green-pepper and onion.

Heat a pan with a little oil (unless you have a wonderful non-stick pan that does not require the addition of oil!). Drop the batter onto the hot pan.

Once small bubbles begin to form on the surface, the flapjacks are ready to be turned.

Flip them over and continue frying.

Serve hot off the griddle with butter and cheese.
