Pancakes are one of my family’s favourites. For breakfast, for brunch, as a snack for school or for tea, I cannot stay too long without making them in our home. I usually flavour them depending on mood, what the kids want and what I have on hand.
These are simple pancakes to make, this time I used chai masala to flavour them. Just a little bit goes a long way.
- 2 cups self raising flour.
- 2 eggs.
- 1 heaped tsp of good quality tea masala. You can use store bought or make your own.
- 1 1/2 tbsp icing sugar. (you can use regular sugar too, or honey).
- 2 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp almond essence, (you can use vanilla too).
Sift your flour into a bowl, add the tea masala, sugar and mix well.
Make a well in the centre and add the eggs and some water to make into a smooth batter.
Add the oil and almond essence next and after mixing let the batter sit a while.
Make your pancakes the regular way.
They smell so good at this point, it is tempting to taste one. Go ahead, cut a piece. 🙂
Behold my leaning tower of pancakes. LOL.
Serve hot with a drizzle of honey and a pat of butter on top. Yum!
PS: I do not add oil when cooking as the batter already has oil mixed in.
Dig in and enjoy.
Tasty, filling and easy to make. Pancakes are never boring.
