Srawoffee Pancakes


Strawoffee Pancake

  • Servings: 2 5-6 inch pancakes
  • Print
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!

Displaying IMG_20140416_155118.jpg      The Strawberry whipped cream was made by mixing a bit of strawberry puree with whipped cream. You may use strawberry juice or syrup. The cream and chocolate syrup make an awesomeliciously balanced combination!

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!
