I admit, I also tried this version of pancakes, but the classic ones still seem better to me (see more ideas here). 🙂 The sauce instead is worth trying with ice cream. 😀
It’s a recipe from Gordon Ramsay, which was the suggestion of the month at #cookingbookclub and sounded great in theory. In practice, we will get some American pancakes – with baking powder in the batter – to try once in a lifetime. 🙂
The dough is made of 2/3 cup flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder (I put less), a pinch of salt, 2/3 cup milk, 2 large eggs separated egg white from egg yolk, 1/4 cold water. The yolks are mixed with milk, water and dry ingredients so that they do not remain lumpy; at the end, add the beaten egg whites separately. A slightly thicker dough comes out.
This dough should be enough for 5-6 people, like two per person.
Fry in a pan with a little butter or oil; when you pour them, add chocolate chips (1/2 cup in total). I just put a few.
Separately, we prepare the orange and liqueur sauce, which, surprisingly, is chocolate sauce. :)))) 1/3 cup chocolate chips, 1/2 cup liquid cream, 2 tablespoons sugar melt over very low heat, finally add 2 tablespoons of orange juice and a tablespoon of Grand Marnier / Cointreau.
The pancakes are arranged on plates, decorated with a slice of orange and sauce on top. Mine are a couple of different ones, as you can see from the pictures. 😀 (Did you notice that they are hearts, yes? :))))))
Happy Valentine, with a lot of socially distant love! 😛 And if you make pancakes, send pictures. :)))))
See all the kitchen disasters here. 🙂 If you tried to destroy the recipe in your kitchen and you succeeded, we would like to hear it too, leave us a comment below; also, write to us if you have any questions or concerns. 🙂
Don’t forget that we also have a #cookingbookclub #disasterinthekitchen, where we experiment with new recipes from cookbooks every month. 🙂
