Originally I had a different post planned for today, but after all the amazing feedback I got from the sweet & savoury corncakes photo I posted yesterday I decided to get it up for you today!
Now that I’ve started my half-marathon training, Sundays have become my long run day. Running is something that I have and will always love but some runs I’m just not having it. It’s on those days that I need some sort of external motivation to keep me going. Lately I haven’t been entirely gung ho on my long runs. 50% is definitely the muggy, hot weather and the other 50% is my laziness. You can’t blame me for wanting to sleep in on Sunday right? Whatever the reason, I’ve found the perfect solution to motivate me to run, pancakes. I could probably run a full marathon right here and now if you told me I had a huge stack of pancakes waiting for me at the end.
If you haven’t picked up on it by now, I have a serious sweet tooth. This is precisely why most of the breakfasts I make or post are sweet. But last Sunday something strange happened, I was craving savoury pancakes! I needed the fluffiness and the carbs but I also needed salt and spicy. So I got busy in the kitchen and came up with this wicked recipe! They are exactly this, sweet and fluffy like pancakes but also spicy and savoury. The perfect meal post-run or any day for that matter.
