Recipe 8: Pancakes with After Eight Sauce
Recipe credits: to my good friend and excellent cook @Aakanksha Srivastava
What you need:
1 cup flour, 1 tbsp sugar (crushed), half tsp salt, 1 tsp baking powder, one egg and about 1 cup of milk, some melted butter (less than 1 tbsp).
How to make it edible:
1. Mix all the dry ingredients first and sift them.
2. Once done, make an empty circle in the middle and pour the egg, butter and milk and mix well. You can tweak the quantity of milk based on the thickness of the batter. It should not be too thick or thin, somewhere in the middle ( I know that is not very precise, but this works a bit on intuition). Once done, leave the batter for about 30 minutes to ferment.
3. Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over low flame. Take one scoop (appoximately 1/5th cup) of batter and spread in the centre, wait for it to turn slightly brown and serve hot with maple syrup.
Personal tweaks: I heated some after eight chocolate in the microwave to make a thick sauce (you can also choose to do this with a double boiler for better effect, I was just lazy :P) and spread it across the pancake.
Time spent in kitchen: half an hour (excluding fermentation time)
Price range of the total cost of all ingredients: INR 100-150 (Makes about 5 pancakes)
