Today i wanted to make something sweet even though i'm in a sugar strike still (i don't eat anything with processed sugar in it for 30 days). All the snow outside is melting into slush and sleet is coming down almost horisontally. So it was a perfect day for comfort food.
I usually make pancakes with sugar in the batter, but this time i made just a small batter with sugar replaced with honey and i must say these were probably the best pancakes i've ever had. Normally i just have raspberry or strawberry jam on top of my pancakes with the occasional pampering with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, but this time i wanted to try something different. And since i don't even have jam atm and since it would have had sugar in it anyway i decided to come up with something else myself. Have to try something new every day.
This is really easy and doesn't take a lot of time to prepare. It's not a healthy snack but not everything has to be...
Pancake batter (for 1 person, or 2 people if it's a small dessert)
- 2,5 dl milk
- 1 egg
- 1 1/4 dl wheat flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 tsp honey (or 2 tbsp sugar)
- 1 tbsp melted margarine or butter
Mix everything in a bowl. (You can also add the margarine just before baking if you wish) Let sit in the fridge for half an hour to an hour before frying.
Banana honey sauce:
- 2/3 banana
- margarine or butter
- 2 tsp honey
- 1 dl cooking cream
Melt some margarine in a small saucepan. Add the chopped bananas. Mix in the honey and fry for a minute. Add the cream and let simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes.
Pour the sauce on the pancakes and enjoy. The rest of the banana you can either eat while cooking ;) or slice it up and add it to your portion. I had some sliced almonds on mine for extra garnish. Here's my tower of pancakes:
