We think we may have discovered the ultimate breakfast treat. This February 28th, why not try coffee pancakes to start your day off in style? These are American-style pancakes, so they’re smaller and much thicker than their European cousins. They’re served in American diners in ‘stacks’ – but you won’t need more than two or three as they’re pretty filling! Here’s what to do:
What you’ll need (to make around eight pancakes)
Optional, for serving:
What to do:
Pre-heat the oven to 50 degrees C. Mix the flour and sugar together. In a separate large measuring jug, whisk the milk, egg coffee and oil together until completely combined. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the milk mixture. Combine roughly using a wooden spoon, then change to a hand whisk to mix the batter. When fully mixed, pour the batter back into the measuring jug.
Put a heavy-bottomed frying pan over a medium heat, and leave it for a minute or two to heat up. Then, pour a little vegetable oil and rotate the pan to coat the bottom. Pour in around an eighth of the batter. Don’t spread it out too thinly – you’re looking for a small, thick pancake. Let it cook for two or three minutes, then slide a fish slice under it and flip it over. When that side’s cooked as well, slide the pancake onto a baking tray and put it in the oven until you’ve done the rest.
Serve with your choice of accompaniments, and a large cup of your favourite coffee on the side. Any left over pancakes can be frozen – just defrost them overnight and reheat them in a hot oven before serving.
