Pancakes are a fun way to start a Sunday morning brunch. I love making all sorts of breakfast foods on Sundays, and I like to experiment with the ingredients to create new and exciting flavours and textures. Last Sunday, I made pancakes, and added various ingredients that I found in the kitchen to make them more interesting and fun. Here are some of the variations that I've tried so far.
Blueberry pancakes: Separate some batter into a new bowl, and mix in some frozen blueberries. Fresh ones are even better! Cook batter as usual.
Chocolate chip pancakes: Sprinkle some chocolate chips on top of the cooking pancake. Your choice for the type of chocolate to use!
Nutella pancakes: Separate some batter into a new bowl, and mix in some Nutella. Stir it really well until it becomes completely brown. Cook batter as usual.
Raspberry pancakes: Depending on how big you want the raspberry chunks to be, either break raspberries into little bits, or sprinkle whole, washed and dried raspberries over the cooking pancakes.
Double chocolate pancakes: After scooping a ladleful of Nutella pancake batter onto the pan, sprinkle some chocolate chips on top while the top side is still cooking.
Raspberry-blueberry pancakes: Sprinkle bits of raspberry and blueberries over a cooking pancake.
Apple cinnamon pancakes: To half of the recipe of batter, add a half cup of apple sauce, a half tablespoon of cinnamon and about 1 tablespoon of flour. (Half or double etc. these amounts as necessary) Cook batter as usual.
Banana walnut pancakes: In a food processor, add a half cup of walnuts and a ripe banana and blend until it forms a paste. Mix the banana walnut mix into half the recipes' worth of batter. (Half or double etc. these amounts as necessary) Cook batter as usual.
These are the only variations that I've tried so far, but I can't wait to try more and more as I go. I'm thinking of adding little slices of apple, or bits of jam... the possibilities are endless! Let me know: have you ever tried pancake variations?
