Well, I had no idea American fluffy pancakes are so good. I made crepes a lot of times, but they got boring to me. And I’ve tried the American ones at a restaurant and liked them, but for some reason, I thought they were too boring to make at home. Not the case. They are so fluffy, the texture and taste are really different from the crepes. The next time I am for sure making them with Creme Anglaise, but this time I wanted to do something less time consuming, so I topped them with a simple chocolate sauce. Delicious 🙂 !
300 g milk
55 g melted butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
185 g flour
4 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 ½ tbsp sugar
Loacker hazelnut spread
Chocolate sauce (I made it from some melted chocolate and condensed milk, but you can Make a ganache-use the same amount of whipping cream and chocolate that you melt in the cream)
Mix the milk with melted butter, egg and vanilla extract. Add the flour with baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix well, until combined. Put some butter, or oil on a pancake pan and heat it up. Pour some batter on the pan to make small, round pancakes. Flip it over when big bubbles start to form on the surface, bake the other side for a few more seconds and remove from the pan.
Spread some hazelnut spread on the first pancake, put another pancake on top and spread this one with a milk spread, then add some strawberry slices. Repeat as many times as you want. Pour the top with a chocolate sauce and decorate with a strawberry. Enjoy 🙂
