Excited about adding to our weekend breakfast repertoire...

We (the kids and I) made pancakes today for the first time and thought would share this recipe. They came out very well and the fussy kids did great justice. :-)

The best I like about this recipe is that the ingredients are basic and always stocked at home. So no planning or shopping.

Take 1 egg, 4/5 tablespoons of atta, teaspoon or more butter (can omit), little sugar--1 teaspoon , some milk depending on how thick or thin you want it and beat it to make smooth paste add 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoon baking powder (or a couple of pinches) and little vanilla essence and beat again.

Then over low/medium heat make the pancakes. Add little butter and then just put dough and let it spread. If you want to make like thin crepes then make like dosa or just let it spread by itself. You can cover if thick to ensure it cooks well.

The dough consistency needs to be thicker definitely than dosas. More like idlis I guess. For pancakes thicker and for crepes much thinner.

Once pancake is made add butter and lots of maple syrup (Namdharis has it) or honey.

Have I left out anything? Please let me know and do add to this recipe.

Wow. I am at home since the last couple of weeks and heavily into kids lunch box and breakfasts and snacks.

I was just wondering today morning how I could make a healthier version of Pancake without using Maida or the Pancake flour which I think is actually maida anyways.

Thanks Mango_mama.

Is the Maple Syrup in Namdhari's an organic one or the regular one which might be available in FoodWorld.

I dont have a Namdharis in part of the world.

Maple Syrup is regular American Garden imported brand. I heard Foodworld also has Aunt Jemima. Do check out Foodworld, Nilgiris as well.

G luck!

I like to add chopped apples in the middle so that when you roll the pancake and eat it, the juicy taste is delicous. Not everyone may like it. Sometimes I add a dash of cinnamon powder too. My three year old fussy eater loves it.

I would like to have some more such healthy and delicious recipies for my 2 year old.

I follow the exact recipe as Mango Mama with an added topping which kids love.

Once the batter is poured , sprinkle raisins or thinly sliced dried figs to add up the nutritient quotient.
