JML challenged me to create a healthy fried breakfast using their new Regis Stone non-stick pan. I’ve heard about non-stick pans before but to be honest they never seemed to work as advertised, so I was really keen on trying Regis Stone.
I wanted to prepare a full English breakfast but then I thought to myself “hmmm, sausages have fat in them so my frying will not really be fat free, therefore I will not be able to truly test the new frying pan”… I could of course cook the eggs first but it would be such a waste of all that tasty nice sausage fat…
This led me to a new cunning idea – I will make Apple & Cinnamon Breakfast Pancakes! No fat in them so I will actually be able to make a fat free breakfast and thus test if the pan is really non-stick.
So how did it go?
Perfectly! I am quite amazed by the Regis Stone pan. I must admit I was tempted to add just a drop of oil… just in case… but I didn’t. My pancakes were cooked without any fat whatsoever and the pan didn’t even require a wash afterwards.
If you would like to try my breakfast pancake recipe, this is what you need and how you make them.
- 1/2l milk
- 2 eggs
- 300g flour
- 100g white sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 1/2tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1tsp cinnamon
- 2 apples
- Icing sugar for serving
Separate the eggs whites from their yokes.
Place the whites in a separate bowl, ready for whisking.
Place the flour, sugar, salt, soda, cinnamon, milk and both yokes in a large bowl and mix all ingredients with a whisk until everything is well combined.
Wash, peel (or not), core and dice your apples. Add them into your main mixture.
Whisk the egg whites until they are able to form firm peaks and then gently fold them into the main mixture with a metal spoon.
Now, you are ready to start cooking.
As I used a Regis Stone pan, I had no need for any fat. I just grabbed a good spoonful of my mixture and place it in the preheated pan. It should take you just over a minute for each side to cook and brown nicely.
Serve warm after dusting with icing sugar.
Oh, and if you are in need of a new frying pan, I would highly recommend Regis Stone! We are going to order a large 28cm one. This is really one amazing frying pan!
* I received one 24cm Regis Stone pan for free as well as shopping vouchers, to cover the cost of the ingredients, but all opinions expressed in this post are honest and my own.
