Today I decided to try a recipe that I found in Yummy Magazine’s December 2011 issue.
I used half of the ingredients, so I only got to make 3 pancakes.
Ingredients for the pancake batter:
1. 1/2 cup cold cooked rice
2. 2 eggs, beaten
3. 1/8 cup coconut milk
4. 1/8 cup coconut flakes
5. 1 tablespoon sugar (I added more sugar to the original recipe. It was only supposed to be 1 teaspoon, or half a teaspoon if the recipe was reduced in half)
6. 1/4 cup flour
7. 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
8. 1/4 teaspoon salt
9. Banana and coconut flakes
Ingredients for the syrup:
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon cornstarch dissolved in 1 tablespoon water
1. Start making your pancake batter. Mix the eggs, coconut milk, coconut flakes, sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
2. Start making the syrup. Mix the coconut milk and sugar, heat it and stir until sugar dissolves.
3. Pour in the blend of water and cornstarch. Wait for it to boil, then stir for 3 minutes over low heat. Set aside.
4. Fry the batter. Added tip: turn it over when the edges become more solid.
5. Cook until golden brown.
6. Pour syrup and top with bananas. You can also add coconut flakes.
Comments and suggestions:
The rice gives the pancakes a different kind of texture, but I also want to try to mash the rice or put it in the blender and see what kind of effect this will have on the recipe. Mama said we could skip the bananas and syrup, then add meat, so it will become a rice burger pancake or something. Sounds interesting? I’ll let you know how those recipe ideas turn out.
