Sweet n fruity pancake-an easy way to please kids
Ingredients: White flour(200 gms.), eggs( 2 nos.), milk(300mls.), sugar according to taste. chopped fruits(here I have used apples, even pears will do), essence of vanilla(1 teaspoon),oil for frying.
Procedure: Mix white flour , milk and eggs well.Batter it nicely till it makes a semi liquid mass ,quite easy to be handled with a spatula.Add 1 teaspoon of essence of vanilla for a nice flavor.Now heat 2 teaspoon oil in a frying pan and spread equally. Take one tablespoon full of dough and evenly spread just like the preparation of dosa.When it is already 1/2 min. in the pan , then you may spread the chopped fruits(apple/pear/guava) on it and sprinkle sugar on the dough.The amount of sugar sprinkled should be minimum one teaspoon per dough. Because pancake is a variety which should be on a sweeter side.Originally pancakes should be dipped in sugar syrup, but this is a shortcut way.After 1 minute the pancake is ready. Turn on the other side and cook it equally.The pancake should turn golden brown in certain sides but should not burn away.Remove it to a plate and it's ready to serve.The above combination will give 8-10 pancakes approximately.
The pancake prepared in this methodology may not match with the traditional one, but taste will be more or less the same.So , if you have a hungry kid who expects his/her mom to prepare new, delicious varieties , then this can be a great gift to him/her.Enjoy the moments of being a mom and see your child licking finger and enjoying the food.From the nutrition part you can be rest assured that you have offered the best of it to our child.
