Who wants a pancake,
Sweet and piping hot?
Good little Grace looks up and says,
“I’ll take the one on top.”
Who else wants a pancake,
Fresh off the griddle?
Terrible Theresa smiles and says,
“I’ll take the one in the middle.”
by Shel Silverstein
Before we talk pancakes for #NationalPancakeDay, let’s discuss sensitive skin. Sensitive skin is not necessarily allergic. Rather, it is a type of skin that is naturally vulnerable to external aggression, which overreacts in certain conditions. Depending on the individual, sensitive skin can manifest itself with different forms of reactivity that may include sensations of tingling, skin pulling, itching or as an annoying sensation of heat and / or burning, sometimes combined with redness.
Women with sensitive skin must pay careful attention to the products they choose. Your beauty-routine must be specific, from the cleanser you use on a daily basis to your make up remover and face cream. It is extremely important that you check the ingredients in every product that comes into contact with your sensitive skin. Your skin will absolutely notice the advantage of using chemical free, organic products that perform a soothing action providing relief to the epidermis. Natural ingredients to incorporate in your daily routine include thermal waters of different sources, oils, especially rose, and fruit extracts such as raspberries, which help to reduce redness. Argan oil is an even richer and more nutritious ingredient that helps to maintain a high level of skin nourishment and hydration.
The Anti-Inflammatory Powers of Raspberries
Raspberries, like many other red fruits, such as pomegranate and blueberries, contain nutrients and antioxidants. Deriving from the Rosaceae botanical family, Rubus idaeus, from the raspberry you get a very precious vegetable oil, by cold pressing the seeds of the fruit:
it is necessary to separate the pulp from the seeds, which are dried and reduced to a powder form. The powder is cold pressed and filtered to obtain an oil with important antioxidant properties. This oil, rich in vitamin E, prevents skin aging, the formation of lines and wrinkles, and has healing and anti-inflammatory properties.
In honor of National Pancake Day and Organyc’s desire to protect and respect sensitive skin, we have decided to go with a “Raspberry Pancake Recipe!”
Makes about 12 round pancakes.
2 large eggs
1 cup milk
2 tbsps. cooking oil
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup fresh, organic raspberries
- Break the eggs into a bowl.
- Beat with a whisk until the eggs are fairly smooth and a bit bubbly. Add the milk and cooking oil to the eggs and mix well.
- Add the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt to the above mixture and stir.
- Gently, stir in the raspberries.
- Heat the frying pan until a few drops of water bounce all over. Spray the pan with no-stick cooking spray or use a little shortening.
- Using a ladle or spoon equal to about 1/4 cup, scoop spoonsful of the batter into the frying pan.
- When the tops are bubbly and the edges are a bit dry, turn the pancake to brown the other side.
- Remove the pancake to a plate, and repeat this process till all the batter is used.
