Everyone knows it’s the most important meal of the day, even more so when you’re on a Haven holiday packed with energy-consuming activities. We’ve got plenty in the way of breakfast goodies stocked in our handy onsite supermarkets, from freshly baked pastries to nutritious juices.

If you’re lucky enough to be staying with us in Wales, there are plenty of ready-to-go breakfast items produced by Henllan Bakery such as delicious breads, morning goods and sweets. However, if you want to cook something more substantial for the family then take a look at our suggestions below. All recipes can be made using Co-op ingredients stocked in our supermarkets.

Fluffy American Pancakes

Fluffy American Pancakes

Quick and easy to prepare, with only a few basic ingredients, American style pancakes are the treat breakfast that everyone craves. Thicker than British pancakes, with a lovely small round shape, and an amazing fluffy and light texture these are the perfect breakfast or brunch, especially if you add a handful of fresh blueberries to the batter before cooking.

Prep: 30 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Serves: 1 person
Ingredients:

  • 150g plain flour

  • 1 tsp baking powder

  • Half a tsp salt

  • 140ml milk

  • 2 tbsp caster sugar

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • 2 tbsp melted butter (allowed to cool slightly) or olive oil, plus extra for cooking maple syrup, berries and more butter to serve

Method: 

Step 1 
Sift the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, caster sugar and salt) into a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, lightly whisk the egg and milk together, then mix in the melted butter.

Step 2 
Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and beat with a fork until you have a smooth batter. Make sure there are no lumps and let the batter stand for a few minutes.

Step 3
Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. When it's melted, pour in a ladleful of batter, tilting the pan and spreading the batter around to cover the whole bottom of it. Wait until the top of the thick pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over. Fry each pancake until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about 1cm thick.

Step 4
Repeat step 3 until all the batter is used up then serve with a generous helping of maple syrup, berries of your choice and extra butter.

The Perfect Scrambled Eggs

The Perfect Scrambled Eggs 

Want to know the secret to the world’s best scrambled eggs? The answer is milk and butter, a good whisk, and a pan over low heat. Start your day with luxuriously fluffy scrambled eggs in under 10 minutes!

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 5 mins
Serves: 1 person
Ingredients:

  • 3 medium eggs

  • Knob of butter

  • 1 tbsp of whole milk

  • Pinch of salt and pepper

  • 2 slices of your favourite bread

Method: 

Step 1 
In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk and seasoning until well mixed.

Step 2 
Heat a pan on a low heat and gently melt the butter (be careful not to burn it!)

Step 3
Whilst the butter is melting, put the toast in the toaster.

Step 4
Pour the eggs into the pan and using a spatula, gently prize the eggs away from the edges.

Step 5
The eggs are ready when they look nice and silky, and a little runny (they continue to cook after you take them out the pan so don’t overcook them).

Step 6
Butter your toast and spoon the eggs on top. Finish with a pinch of salt and pepper or some chives (if you’re feeling fancy) and tuck in.
