It has been nearly 2 months since I posted, I spent time with my parents and family during the month of April and came back to chennai mid-may to start work on my Preschool -‘rosedale’. It has been hectic the last few weeks but nevertheless, ‘rosedale’ is finally beginning to take shape and hopefully it should open by the third week of June.
Well, I’m back now and Saturdays at the Josephs – is Pancake day. Its the weekend and I tend to get more time to spend in the kitchen – specially in the morning. It’s a kind of a ritual – I just open my fridge and digdeep to see what new flavour I can try out with ingredients at hand and today was no exception. I had peanut butter, bananas and butterscotch chips . Put them all together and it was the most amazing flavour – all of us loved it.
Happiness is the smell of pancakes.
Happy to be sharing a very original recipe – from my kitchen to yours…
- Flour-2 cups
- Baking powder-2 tbsp
- Baking soda -1 tsp
- Salt-1/2 tsp
- Sugar-2 tbsp
- Eggs -2
- Peanut butter-1/4 cup
- Milk-1 and 3/4 cups
- Banana-2-3 medium
- Vanilla essence-2 tsp
- Butterscotch chips-1/2 cup
- Take all the dry ingredients together ( flour- sugar).
- In a blender take milk (3/4 cup) along with the other wet ingredients( eggs-vanilla essence).
- Pour the above milk mixture into a bowl and add the remaining milk to it. Mix thoroughly with a whisk.
- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour the milk mixture. Blend well with the help of a whisk.
- Fold in the butterscotch chips and keep the pancake mixture aside for 10-15 minutes – covered.
- Heat a non -stick pan and pour a tablespoon of pancake mix. It will spread on its own.
- When bubbles appear on the top, turn the pancake over and let it cook for a couple of minutes.
- Remove and serve with pancake syrup or a dollop of cream.
- All the ingredients should be at room temperature.
- Heat a heavy non – stick griddle pan over a medium flame for a couple of minutes.
- Make a small pancake to test and see how hot the griddle is.
- Do not press down the pancake with a spatula after overturning.
- The pancake batter has to rest for 10-15 minutes after mixing the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.
- Ideally you could add a few berries or bacon bits too, to the spoonful of pancake batter cooking on the griddle, cos if added to the batter in the bowl, these add-ons are going to sink to the bottom.
- Have fun, and keep trying out new flavours.
