So I was actually making some normal pancakes in the morning, into which I added coffee and a few other experiments for fun, but actually turned out pretty great!

The chocolate spiral grooves on the pancake were made when chocolate syrup was poured over the wet (uncooked) side of the batter while the pancake was cooking.

Ingredients:

(BATTER)

4 tbsp all-purpose flour-

1 tsp baking powder-

1/2 tbsp + 1 tsp sugar-

1/2 tsp vanilla essence-

1 egg-

1/2 cup + 1 tbsp milk-

A pinch of Coffee powder

Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup

(TOPPINGS: OPTIONAL)

Strawberry whipped cream

Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup

Strawberries

Method:

  1. In a bowl, mix the flour, baking powder and sugar.
  2. In another bowl, whip the egg and add the vanilla essence and milk.
  3. Now, slowly pour the wet mixture into the dry one, mixing well. Teh batter should not be too thin or too thick.
  4. Next, sprinkle the coffee powder over the batter, and mix until only a few marks of teh coffee are left.
  5. Heat a skillet or fry pan, and butter it. Now pour the batter into the pan.
  6. Only a few moments after you pour the batter into the pan, pour the chocolate syrup over the wet batter in spirals, and let it sink into the batter. When bubbles start forming on one side, or you feel like the other side is done, flip over. When the other side is done too, take off heat.
  7. Follow steps 5-6 for the rest of the batter too. Serve warm with toppings (optional).

Ingredients:

4-6 strawberries

1 banana

1 cup milk

ice cubes (optional)

Method:

  1. First, pour the milk into a blender.
  2. Slice the banana and if you want, the strawberries. Most recently, I have begun using strawberry puree ice cubes (home made), but both work perfectly.
  3. If you want an absolutely chilled drink, add ice cubes. Then, turn the blender on and voila! You’ve got your Strawberry-banana milkshake!

National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day: Special Recipe!


April 12 is *un*officially NGCSD (National Grilled Cheese Sandwich Day)! Here’s a quick Grilled Cheese Sandwich recipe perfect for *almost* every ocassion:

Ingredients

Cheese slices (whatever type)

Bread slices (whatever type)

Butter/olive oil

OPTIONAL:

Butter

Lettuce

Pickles

Thinly sliced tomatoes

Chili sauce/Barbecue sauce/Tomato sauce

Mayo

Any other toppings you wish to include

Directions:

  1. Butter a frying pan, or the outside of each slice of bread, whichever you prefer, and put one side of sandwich on pan with cheese on top. (you can also add some olive oil to the pan, if you want.) Then add the top slice right away. Lower the heat and cover to help the cheese melt.
  2. Check to see if bread is brown after no more than a minute and a half, although more time may be needed for desired results. When bread is brown enough, flip. Dispose of the left over butter grounds out of the pan, so the next flip will be fresh.
  3. Know that the second side should brown faster so be prepared to check it in no time. When it is cooked to your satisfaction, turn off the stove, put your sandwich on a plate, and enjoy.
  4. Plus, cut the sandwich to a two triangles if you want.

Real Swedish Pancakes


Real Swedish Pancakes (Pannkakor)

  • Servings: 4 pancakes

Also known as Pannkakor, these delicious pancakes should be thin like crêpes. It’s also important that the skillet is thoroughly and evenly hot before starting. Slightly salty, by the way. If you want a sweet*er* pancake, lessen the salt and add more sugar.
