There is a lot good about this Friday, too! It’s Easter weekend, so we don’t have class today and are home putting in some serious fam-jam time, there’s chocolate EVERYWHERE, it’s potentially the most beautiful day we’ve had since the fall, and we’re sticking to our promise and giving you more of our pancake-in-a-jar recipes!
Orange Strawberry Banana.
This has been on of our favourite flavour combinations ever since our dad first brought home a carton of Orange Strawberry Banana Juice. Delicious!
This pancake kind of fits in really well with the weather, it’s just so bright and colourful!
You know, though, there are a lot of other good things about today. Like our family members’ health, as well as the second year of our new Easter tradition. You see, last year, shortly before Easter weekend, our aunt fell down the stairs early in the morning and broke several bones, it was quite a mess! Seeing as she is the one who usually spear-heads our family meals, but was clearly going to be in no condition to cook, we had to change the plan. My Grandma suggested we just do soup and sandwich – everyone brings a soup and then my other aunt, who agreed to host, would provide sandwich fixings, and the two of us would make bread. It turned out so well, that we decided why not do it again this year? Our aunt has fully healed from her accident, and out of her accident came a brand-new family tradition! 🙂
Needless to say, we are spending partially outside enjoying the day, and partially inside baking several loaves of bread! What’s better than that?
Of course, don’t worry – we have something else in the oven too, just in time for Easter. 😉 But for now, we hope you enjoy your day off and that you make this pancake-in-a-jar! We promise you won’t be disappointed. 🙂
Happy Good Friday!
Orange Strawberry Banana Pancake in a Jar
Prep time: 10min
Cook time: 5 min
1 c. whole wheat flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/4 c. orange juice
1/2 c. milk of choice
zest of 1 orange
1 tbsp orange pulp
1 tbsp nut butter (almond or coconut would work well)
1 banana, chopped
1/2 c. chopped strawberries
2 tbsp orange pulp
1/4 c. orange pulp
2 tbsp water
2 tbsp honey
Chop up strawberries and banana and divide evenly into two medium sized mason jars.
Zest the orange, squeeze out the juice, and remove the pulp from the rind.
Divide 2 tbsp of the pulp evenly between the two mason jars, mixing with the strawberries and bananas.
In a medium sized bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Mix in orange juice, milk, zest and 1 tbsp of orange pulp.
Divide this mixture evenly between the two mason jars and then cook in the microwave for 5 minutes, or until firm to the touch.
For the syrup, combine the 1/4 c. of orange pulp and honey in a food processor or blender (we used our spice grinder), then add 1 tbsp of water at a time until you reach your desired consistency. Pour over the top of your pancake and enjoy!
What’s good about your good friday?
