Pancakes with Honey Cinnamon Sauce

Delicious, soft ,fluffy pancakes always make my mouth water. In the recipe that i share below i have replaced all purpose flour with wheat flour as it is comparatively a healthier option. Adding a spoonful of oats could further enhance the nutritive value.The recipe inspiration is from BBC food which always has foolproof recipes, but I have tweaked it to my suitability and added the honey cinnamon sauce.The dish is wholesome and healthy. Ideally a breakfast food, but honestly I don’t mind eating pancakes as dessert too!

Ingredients:

  • Whole wheat flour —- 1/2 cup
  • Milk                       —- 1/2 cup
  • Egg                       —- 1 large
  • Castor sugar         —- 2 tbs
  • Salt                        —- 1/2 tsp
  • Baking powder       —- 1 tsp
  • Melted butter          —- 2 tbs

Method: 

Sift all the dry ingredients together and keep aside. Whisk together the milk ,egg and gradually add the melted butter.Finally mix the dry and the wet ingredients while beating lightly with a fork. Leave the mixture to rest for 2 minutes. Now heat a nonstick pan and smear a knob of  butter over it. Pour a ladle full of the mixture on the pan and let cook. Holes will appear on its surface. Flip the side and cook till lightly brown.Make a stack of the pancakes.

Honey Cinnamon Syrup:

Ingredients-

  • Honey —-3/4 cup
  • butter —- 1/2 cup
  • Ground cinnamon —- 1/2  tsp

Heat all the above ingredients over a low flame till warm and the butter gets melted.Don’t overheat but keep it warm.

Serve the pancakes with the dripping honey cinnamon syrup and slices of caramelized apples or fresh cut strawberries.

There are so many variations that can be made to the basic recipe. As an Indian twist try addind some aniseed (saunf) to the pancake batter.It has an amazing flavour and the pancakes taste almost like ‘Meetha Pura’- a local Indian dish. Meetha means sweet and pura is anything of batter consistency that is pan fried. Follow my blog for more — if you like this post. See you 🙂
