Maple syrup / Honey to be drizzled on the pancakes

Method

1. Mix all the ‘wet ingredients’ together in a bowl and stir them together with a fork or balloon whisk. Set aside.

2. In a separate bowl stir together the first five ‘dry ingredients’, that is, all purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

3. All at once, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir them together to combine. Fold in the basil seeds and allow the batter to rest for a few minutes.

4. In the meantime, heat a non-stick pan over medium heat and coat it with oil or butter. Use the 1/4 cup measuring cup to dollop the batter on to the pan.

4. Once the egg firms up a bit, slide the bread around the pan so that it cooks in the oil that’s in the pan.

5. Place the sandwiched cut-out circles (with cheese between them) also in the pan and let them toast on both sides.

6. Serve when the egg has cooked completely.
