Christmas treat- Pancakes for breakfast

ohh, I love Jamie Oliver. 
I love his recipes, I love the way he cooks, i love his carisma.
This week they had this show, Jamie christmas family on the tv every evening at 6:30. Did you watch? I watched and recorded the 5 episodes, and got so inspired that cooked some of the stuff the day after (even tho he is in the frozen winter and we are in boiling (not so boiling) summer.
One night he made left overs turkey "Chili con carne" so I made chili con carne vegetarian style. other day he showed how to make those amazing roasted potatoes. I adapted on my own way obviously but made with balsamic glaze, was just amazing. 
And one of the days the thought how to cook breakfast pancakes.I made them this morning and they were so good we ate them all (even tho would have been enough for 3 or 4 people).
I must say you will see the ingredients, the are not too bad at all (Until you put toppings heheheh).

So here we go:
easy easy pancakes (For 3 ou 4 people)
1 cup of regular flour  (Jamie oliver recipe uses self raising flour and no baking powder)
1 cup of milk
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp of baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Some fruit (optional but advisable) -  I put strawberries. In Jamie recipe he uses pear.
Butter (if you want the fat version) or olive oil spray (little bit lighter, and is what I used) for cooking them

In a large bowl put flour, milk, egg, salt and baking powder and whisk it until gets soft. Then grate or chop the fruit inside and mix with a spoon
Heat up a large frying pan with the butter or oil. You will need to cook them batches. Put 3or 4  tbsp of the batch and it will set in one pancake.  you can make 2 or 3 at the same time depending on the size of your frying pan. Leave it for a couple of minutes than turn and leave the other side to cook for a couple of minutes.

if you want them to look very very nice you can sprinkle icing sugar on the top.

Suggestions of toppings.
Ricotta, Banana, Cinamon and honey
Mapple syrup
Strawberries, banana and yogurt
Just honey and yogurt
whatever else comes to your mind.

Ps.: We were hungry so I ended up forgetting to take a photo of the final result. heheheh

Merry xmas.
