Season with salt and pepper.

Heat a bit of butter or olive oil in a frying pan, medium heat.

Add spoonfuls of batter to the pan using a large spoon. Space them evenly apart.

Once both sides are golden brown, remove from pan.

Allow to cool for a few minutes and serve.


  • Carrots are packed full of beta-carotene, which our bodies convert into vitamin A. Carrots are one of the best sources of vitamin A. Vitamin A is good for your skin, bones, teeth, and vision. Beta-carotene is also what gives carrots their distinct orange colour.
  • Cheese is among the richest dietary sources of calcium, which plays an essential role in bone health.
