Zeke, Zene and Burzin were driving me mad , one wanted to break the egg , one wanted to add sugar and Zene just wanted to taste the blueberries and be served , she was not interested in helping ,working or any mundane kitchen activity...
Here's the recipe: Fluffy Pancakes
1 cup flour
1 tbsp grainy sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
2/3 cup full ft milk
1/5 cup unsalted butter
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder1/4 tsp soda bi-carb
1 large egg
Mix the flour , sugar,salt,baking powder and soda bicarbonate in a bowl.
Beat together buttermilk,full fat milk,egg yolk and melted butter.
Then mix the dry ingredients to the wet ones.
beat the egg white till it is nice and fluffy and stiff.
Heat a flat pan , smear it with very little vegetable oil and take spoon fulls of batter and cook either side till golden brown .
So yes i did all of the above but also added some orange rind and the juice of 1/2 an orange and some cinnamon, also because i used Amul butter ,i put slightly less salt and added a little more sugar, it had a very nice but subtle aroma of orange and cinnamon, and they turned out fluffy and soft.
Now i picked up a can of blueberries because no blueberries in the market naturally, and heated them with a little butter and little maple syrup till , yes it tasted different but nice different.
I ate the stack that is in the photograph above and Zeke and Zene had theirs with maple syrup and Hershey's chocolate syrup and while eating Zeke said, 'Why did you have to make pancakes, we could have made something else" , well what can i say , "Ghar ki murgi dal barabar".
My boy Friday Vijay, Burzins maid and me thought they were tasty fluffy and yummy and so they finished the rest of the plate and all the toppings , so I'm happy !
