Fresh Blueberry Pancakes

February 28, 2012

Nutella really wasn’t part of it, and not at all necessary – that was my addition, and perhaps a little greedy. Crazily enough this Banana loaf contains no butter  – uses oil instead.  Still stays moist…

Breakfast buffet featured some local breakfasty foods so my breakfast consisted of:   Soon kueh (dumpling looking things which I covered in the sauce) Pau ( The round thing below) Fried Noodles Egg custard So to be fair I had no idea what to expect from most of these dishes. It turned out the Pau was a sweet type of thing and shouldn’t have really been on my plate with the…
