Is it wrong to share two pancakes post in one week? Would you guys get bored if I keep talking about pancakes? But what if the pancakes are too gorgeous and posting it a month later would mean you would already have eaten 6548 pieces of these pancakes? Relax folks, I am not gonna do it, just saying it. Not that it is impossible though.
Last Monday, I shared Gordon’s Buttermilk Pancakes with Caramelized Bananas recipe. That was obviously amazing. These on the other hand is something indulging.
Imagine fluffy XXL pancakes + Nutella + Bananas + Ice cream all on ONE plate.
I am thinking, if it looks like this,
Would it still be appropriate for breakfast?
I guess it really depends on the type of person you are. Type A) If you are fine with a brownie or a doughnut for breakfast, this one is for you. Type B) If you are of that type who eats 10 almonds and a glass of skimmed milk for breakfast, I wished I could be just like you, health freak. Do you even know how butter + maple syrup taste like? Just wondering. No sarcasm there.
So my type A friends, these pancakes are A-MAZING! Type B people, you might wanna try this delicious Grilled Vegetables with Balsamic Vinaigrette instead, which are B-RILLIANT too. Healthy yet delicious and its your kinda thing. Actually it is my kinda thing too.
I am not a chocolate person but once a while, I get chocolate cravings. In this case, chocolate cravings = nutella.
I have seen and heard so many people having their pancakes with Nutella. I have personally never tried it. Yes, this is a virgin attempt right here. So last night, my mother requested for pancakes
again, but this time it was for dinner. Dunch you just love all day breakfast? They are my favorites! I am soooo sure that this idea of “all day breakfast” was invented by someone who rarely woke up in time for breakfast, just like me. In-fact more and more cafes are serving all-day breakfast so you can have your bacon and eggs anytime you want. How ingenious! Sorry for side tracking. It is just me. I can be having a bowl of chicken soup for dinner and at the same time thinking of the grilled asparagus I had for lunch. My mind just works that way. Back to the pancakes, so I wanted to do a large pancake for myself just so that I can fold it like a crepe. I was initially thinking of making just one pancake and then I thought, just one pancake would look too lonely bad in photos.
Everyone deserves some companian, thus I ended up making two pancakes, so that they can keep each other company
and for photographing purposes. Of course I was not planning to have both!
Bananas and chocolates just go hand in hand, and I decided on this combination. You can of course create your own amazing mix and match fillings/toppings.
Most of the times, things do not go as planned. Just as I said earlier, I was planning to eat just one of these pancakes, I don’t really know how I ended up eating erm..both.
I only wanted to have one scoop of ice cream with the pancakes though. I could have easily had two scoops, but I didn’t, till my mom started placing the second scoop on my plate. Me scooping the ice cream on my plate and my mother doing the same are two different things altogether. She forced the ice cream on me. It was so unwanted. I didn’t want it, like really.
These pancakes were just so delicious and these pictures makes me wanna have one more right now, but no…I would not be getting up early in the morning tomorrow just to get a bite of this. Why wake up at 9 am when you can have your pancakes during lunch or even dinner?
PS: Happy Easter People! Enjoy the season of Easter eggs and bonnet hats.
