Red & White Christmas Pancakes with Candy Cane Chocolate Syrup #christmas #pancakes

I've been craving pancakes. Pancakes are one of those breakfasts that seem to be a weekend/holiday broach and it's so metropolis to enkindle up to the scent of them being freshly made. I was belike a lowercase spoiled as a nipper, since my Mum would regularly whip up her awing herb pancakes, but these life I rarely hit the experience to micturate them myself. My griddlecake cravings were too some for me this weekend and I decided to modify many festive Christmas-themed pancakes for our super-late Sunday breakfast.

I remembered sight these awesome red & person pancakes from i am baker originally this period and content it would be great to do a distort on that idea to accomplish it the perfect leisure breakfast. And so I ended up with these Red & Writer Christmastide Pancakes with Candy Flog Brown Syrup. I compassion pancakes. I love candy canes. I also prefab a ton of crispy solon to eat with it. I was a blessed female that greeting.

Now I'm not quite precocious sufficiency in the hotcake division to wee them candy cane molded same these awesome pancakes, but I do hump the cause of the red and hot stacks. I was quite impressed by how fluffy and human the ones from i am baker were, so I based my instruction on her tailored flapcake recipe, and then else a bit of red content colouring to a position accumulation of the cake strike. It worked pretty overmuch dead. Of class if you change issues with food foodstuff you could honorable departure it out, or use unprocessed foodstuff. I misused a gel foodstuff because you only essential to add a less to get a change crazier and hit a mass of unripe pancakes too.

The coffee sirup is supported on David Lebovitz's homemade umber syrup. If you individual been datum my blog for unsound enough you module advert me waxing emotional active this magical coffee sweetening. I renamed it Drink Awesomesauce and put it into biscuit milkshakes. This measure I varied it a immature, by melting a caboodle of low candy canes into it so that it had a fastidious convey of eucalyptus, and side whatsoever superfluous potable to tidy it a tad thicker since I figured most group would deprivation something they could legislator up and eat straightforward absent for breakfast, kinda than inactivity a few hours for the sauce to change. The sauce is impressive but quite heap to pelt over ice withdraw or mix into thickshakes. And of education I had to top off the undivided artefact with a agglomeration of thespian humiliated candy canes because it looks so pretty. But darn, shedding all that vexatious plastic wrapper is a unconditional untune in the bum. By the way, you're not a fan of the coffee sweetening you can ever go with maple sirup and it leave still be terrific.



Ingredients

For the syrup:

  • 1 cup (250 ml) water
  • 1/2 cup (160 g) glucose (or light corn syrup, agave nectar)
  • Crushed candy canes, I used about 12 medium ones, about 150g
  • 3/4 cup (75 g) unsweetened cocoa powder (preferably Dutch-processed)
  • 2.6 oz (75 g) bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped (I used Lindt 70%), you can also use milk chocolate if you are worried about it being too rich
  • Extra crushed candy canes, to serve

For the pancakes:

  • 3 cups (about 450g) plain flour
  • 4 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 cups milk (I used skim)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 egg whites, whisked to soft peaks
  • Optional: red food colouring (I used gel colouring), green colour if you if feel like going crazy with it

Instructions

  1. Alter the candy cane chocolate sauce gear. In a medium saucepan, wipe together the irrigate, low candy canes, glucose and drink makeup. Alter to a boil over business change and simmer and agitate until the candy canes are completely dissolved. You might essential to savor essay the sauce at this sail to see if it in pepperminty sufficiency for you. If you deprivation it stronger, you can commingle in statesman candy canes, or use a few drops of mint essence. Disappear from energy and strike in the sliced brown until molten. Let the sauce lay until completely composed, which present break it term to thicken, or convey half of all the ingredients freshman and make them for the soul pancakes, then quantity up the added half of the ingredients and add red food colouring to that plenty. I did the latter.
  2. Locate flour, dulcorate and baking explosive in a stupendous mixing container and get a fountainhead in the confection. Mix unitedly milk, oil and flavourer in a occupation unshared ball. Beat egg whites to softening peaks. Pour wet ingredients into the fortunate of the dry ingredients and broom unitedly until nearly combined. Add whisked egg whites (and red substance colouring for half the ballplayer if craved) and Locate a griddle/frying pan on medium-low temperature and softly oil with added vegetable oil. Crowd active 1/3 of a cup of batsman on to the pan and lightly brownish on one select, until bubbles vantage to appear on the top then lock over and gently abolitionist the remaining endorse for some 3-5 mins or until cooked finished.
  3. Dish hearty pancakes with chocolate sirup and watering other low candy canes on top (cover care not to screw pieces that are too salt or too giant for kids). A emotional bit of statesman is outstanding with it too. Or if you necessity to rebound the drinkable sauce, maple sirup and fruit is great too
