Hello my wonderful readers!!

Its Monday already!! Every Sunday I catch myself saying “If only the weekend had one more day”!!! Ohh..

Unlike most people, weekends is when so much gets done at home. Cause that’s when I have help. Yes these are the words of a typical stay at home mum. And I love it

So this is how breakfast looked on Sunday morning. Soft, fluffy. lemony pancakes, with lightly grilled pineapple, fresh kiwi and a honey drizzle. Usually I make a typical south Indian breakfast on the weekends. But this time I wanted a change. Apart from breakfast smoothies, we usually have Dosas for breakfast. So these pancakes where a welcome change from the usual food. They are super simple to make and ideal for a family of 4. You could add what ever kind of fruit you prefer, I love fresh pineapples and I had a few kiwis in the fridge so I added them and they were awesome!!!

Ingredients :-

  1. Flour – 2 cups
  2. Sugar – 5 tbsp (brown sugar)
  3. Baking Powder – 1 tsp
  4. Milk – 1 + 2/3 cup
  5. Eggs – 4
  6. Butter – 3 tbsp (melted and cooled)
  7. Salt – 1 tsp ( or to taste)
  8. Vanilla Essence – 2 tbsp
  9. Cottage Cheese – 1+ 1/2 cup
  10. Lemon – zest of one lemon

Instructions :-

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and baking powder. Whisk well with a dry whisk and set aside
  2. In another bowl mix lemon zest, milk, butter, vanilla essence and cottage cheese. Then separate the egg yolks and white.
  3. Add the egg yolks to the milk and butter mixture and whisk
  4. Whisk the egg white to soft peaks in a separate bowl – set aside
  5. Now add the egg yolk + butter + milk + vanilla + cottage cheese + lemon zest Β mixture to the dry ingredients
  6. Combine with a wooden spoon (do not over work the batter, its ok if there are a few lumps)
  7. Now divide the egg white mixture into 3 and slowly fold into the flour mixture
  8. Once all the egg white have been mixed your batter is ready
  9. Heat a non stick pan
  10. I use a large ice cream scoop so that I have equal quantities of batter for every pancake
  11. Pour the batter onto the hot pan. once you see bubbles form on the ends of the pancake flip and cook for 3- 4 mins on low
  12. Stack and serve with grilled pineapples, kiwi and honey!
