One pretty morning, I made a dish which Anish
and me have never eaten. It is the American pancake. We were familiar with
the taste of caramel banana. The caramel banana is an excellent combination
for pancakes. The recipe has been
adapted from Nigella Lawson's American Pancakes It is simply amazing, which
can be served for breakfast, brunch or at teatime. The recipe is quite simpler to follow and can be
made even in hurry burry.
Ingredients for Pancakes
300ml of milk
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
1 tablespoon of baking
1 teaspoon of white
1 teaspoon granulated
white sugar or powdered sugar
A pinch of salt
2 large eggs
225 grams of plain
30 grams of melted butter
For frying some amount
of butter or Olive oil.
Ingredients for Caramel
4 Ripe bananas sliced in round shape
4 tablespoon of sugar
50 gram of butter
2 tablespoon of hot
Procedure for Pan cakes
Mix all the dry ingredients together with a
blender or with hand (If mixed up with the hand, in a bowl, make a well in the
flour and add baking powder, salt and sugar)
Beat in the eggs,
melted butter and milk and pour the batter into the bowl with dry ingredients
and mix it well to avoid any lumps.
Heat a skillet on the
stove and pour the batter into the skillet directly from the bowl or transfer
the batter into a jug and then directly pour into the skillet .
Cook the pancakes and
when the upper side of the pancake is
bubbling, cook the other side (Similar to Indian Dosa :-) )
Procedure for Caramel
Caramelize the sugar
and add butter stirring continuously and add the hot water (Never allow the
caramel to get burnt which would give to a bitter taste)
Put the bananas into
the caramel syrup and cook for some time.
Pour the caramel banana over the pancakes and serve. Else, caramel banana can
be used as a good dip for pancakes.
all had it and the dish got finished
within no time :-)
