I have been craving pancakes for about a week now. I got the ingredients earlier in the week but it took me a while to finally get down to making them because I was so LAZY. I also did not want to make just plain pancakes, I wanted something different. We had just got fresh shrimps from the farmers market and it was to my luck that my mum had deveined them before freezing them.
I hate deveining shrimps and I can’t eat shrimps with the veins still in them. Just imagine that? I am picky but I hate to do the job *LOL*
Anyway, I decided to make pancakes and shrimps. This started out as a no recipe recipe. I had no idea what I was going to combine both pancakes and shrimps, but it worked out so well and yummy too … So I decided to share with you on here.
I will share my pancake recipe outright because a lot of people have been asking me. However, keeping my prawn recipe a secret for now. If you all are lucky, might just share later 😉 I will share a little about how I made the shrimps though.
1) I seasoned my shrimps with a number of seasonings and left it to marinade.
2) I dusted it with flour individually, and then in my pancake mix and then in the panko bread crumbs.
3) I repeated the steps until I ran out of prawns.
4) I deep fried the batter coated prawns.
They came out so nice and golden brown and the taste was way beyond what I imagined. I loved loved it and I can’t wait to twist the recipe around a little bit more. Maybe I’ll share a proper recipe then with you.
For my American style fluffy pancakes, the recipe is as follows;
140 grams flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 large egg
2tbsp melted butter
1 1/2 tbsp vanilla essence
Baileys (to taste)
In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, salt and baking powder.
In another bowl, beat milk and egg together, then add your melted butter and vanilla essence.
Pour in the liquids into the dry ingredients and thoroughly mix until all the lumps are gone.
Add baileys to taste. If you are a baileys fan like me, you can pour in a lot (that’s what I did).
Heat up a skillet/frying pan and add in a little butter. When melted, start frying your pancakes. I usually make them bigger than this for breakfast, but I decided to make them bite size as canapés.
These pancakes are so delicious, especially when they are eaten hot or warm. Serve them to your next guest and you all will have me to thank.
Thank you for stopping by and do let me know how your pancakes turn out when you decide to try them out.
Lots of love,
