i think we are turning into pancake fanatics. send help . . . or maple syrup. we are so religious about eating cereal for breakfast during the weekdays, so we love making fun things like pancakes on weekend mornings.
when we were flipping through adrianna adarme's pancakes cookbook this past weekend, we found a recipe for coffee pancakes. since we are both coffee lovers, we were really intrigued to try them. these pancakes are delicious. the coffee flavor is subtle, and they are so yummy. such a nice spin on traditional pancakes!
prep time: 5 minutes
cooking time: 5 minutes
yields: 2 servings
adapted from pancakes
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
1 tablespoon salted butter, melted
in a medium bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. in a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, vanilla, egg, instant coffee, and melted butter. add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk until no lumps remain.
heat a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan on medium heat. pour 1 tablespoon of batter onto the griddle for small pancakes. cook for 3 minutes, until small bubbles begin to form. flip the pancakes when they start to bubble, then cook for 2 minutes, until they are golden brown and cooked throughout. once cooked, transfer the pancakes to a baking sheet and place in a preheated 200 degree F oven to keep warm while you cook the remaining pancake batter. serve warm with maple syrup.
