Coffee Pancakes

PancakesIt’s International Coffee Day today. That means it is the perfect day to make these Coffee Pancakes from A Cozy Kitchen.

Really! Do it. I made them a few weeks ago, and immediately sent a text to those of my friends who absorb coffee like they absorb air and told them to make these.

It is probably the easiest to make, and best results, I have experienced with any American pancake recipe. (I used the conversion that 1 cup=roughly 237 ml.)

I switched the sugar in the recipe for 1 tsp powdered stevia. And then doused the thing in Canadian blueberry maple syrup – so I’m not sure it made a huge difference in the long run…

The recipe without the coffee added is also quite tasty. I’ve experimented with switching types of flour for it to make it rougher”, successfully.

Herb pancakes with smoked salmon and chèvre

Swapping the meat with smoked salmon… easy peasy solution. And the flavours still go very well together.

It’s an European style pancake and not an American one.

This serves two as a starter.

(Excuse the extremely unfocused picture – my hand was still moving and it snapped way too soon. It tastes much better than it  looks in the picture…)
