Attention: hard to stop eating these pancakes!

Attention: hard to stop eating these pancakes!

I never really like making pancakes, because they make so much mess in the kitchen and then they are gone in a second. Then again, this is one of the very few recipes that I have memorized from my childhood, and that must mean something 🙂 ( I suppose this is a classical recipe where children were allowed to get involved). I can still repeat it: 1 egg, 1 glass of flour, 1 glass of milk, salt and sugar. That’s basically it. Those were pancakes I made as a child; this is my grown-up version 🙂

Ingredients for 2 (made 6 pancakes)

For the pancakes For the compote For the crumble
equal amounts of flour and coconut milk/cream (I used 1 glass of each) 2 figs, cut in 4 pieces, oats
1 egg 1 apple, peeled, cored and cubed brown sugar
bit of salt 1 pear: the same as apple
a bit more of brown sugar slice of butter (I am using lactose free)
vegetable oil for frying a bit of sugar

Step-by- step

It's exactly as it looks: using 3 pans at the same time :)

It’s exactly as it looks: using 3 pans at the same time 🙂

  1. First you need to prepare all your ingredients (as in measure, peel, cut etc)
  2. Mix together pancake batter, taste it and adjust the seasoning if needed (I wanted to add more sugar).
  3. Heat up 2 pans and when they are hot, add to one vegetable oil, to other: butter.
  4. In the pan with butter let apple and pear simmer with some sugar (you can use different fruit if you want. obviously 🙂
  5. Meanwhile on the other hot pan, using the ladle, spoon the batter and bake the pancakes one by one, putting them afterwards in a soup plate, covered with another soup plate (or any other solutions of your preference to keep the pancakes warm)
  6. When you see that the pancake batter is coming to an end (I had made 4 pancakes and had 2 more to go), put in a dry pan oats and sugar on a low heat (I left it there for 5 min, stirring from time to time) and  add the figs in the fruit compote pan.
  7. Now assemble all the ingredients as you want (wrap them, stack them, eat them separately) and enjoy your lick-your-fingers-delicious breakfast!
