Since the countdown for me to participate at IFBM is on, I am trying to hone up various recipes which are not often made at our household. One kind of breakfast that I have recently taken interest upon now a days is pancakes. And since I love cooking challenges so trying my skills to come up with interesting dishes. Like in my previous post Trifle With Plum Compote And Boondi Laddo I had included Indian Boondi Laddo for the trifle which came out fantastic.
Another reason was ofcourse taking part in KitchenAid Contest which is a part of upcoming Bangalore Food Bloggers Meet that is going to happen on 1st aug and 2nd Aug 2014. Well who wouldn't want to win KitchenAid Chopper !
The best part about it is that it is such an easy peasy recipe that anyone can follow. Also you could add small pieces of plums while serving. As now a days we are pressed for time in our jobs, so we need nutrition with taste as well. This time around I have mixed plum compote in the batter as this fruit is seasonal. So here’s for a healthy and tasty breakfast for all of us..
6-7 ripe Plums, Stoned & Chopped
1 cup Buttermilk
2 tbsp Sugar
1 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
4 tbsp melted butter
Pinch of salt
In a large bowl sift all the dry ingredients together and keep aside. In a separate bowl whisk together melted butter + buttermilk+ sugar and egg till everything is combined well.
Add dry ingredients into the wet and stir until just blended (the batter will be slightly lumpy). Fold in the puree of plums. Let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes.
Heat a flat pan to medium heat and spray some cooking oil or brush the pan with some butter. I like to use my tablespoon for pouring the batter as it helps to maintain the same size of pancakes.
Spoon 2-3 tbsp of batter into skillet, using the back of the ladle spread batter into a round shape. Brush with a little butter or spray with cooking spray. Cook 2-3 mins or until you see bubbles on top and light crust on edges.
Flip with a thin spatula to cook the other side. Transfer it to a serving plate and follow the same process to finish all the batter into pancakes. Serve warm with desired toppings. Frankly speaking nothing else is required with these delicious pancakes perhaps a few chopped plums on top. Serve and relish.
