#Matcha Raspberry Pancakes – Eggless

Pancakes have always been a favourite at home. Ever since the time my grandma visited the States & learnt how to make them. Although stores in Bangalore didn’t carry Maple Syrup at the time, she cleverly substituted it with a warm homemade sugar syrup and slowly but surely we discovered the indulgences of a sweet breakfast. Nothing like the wafts of hot simmering sugar & sizzling skillets to ward off sleep on lazy mornings.

Now, I make them plenty at home too except, I substitute whole wheat flour with all purpose flour since it’s healthier owing to it’s high fibre content.
The pancakes that I’m sharing with you today, are enriched by the addition of Matcha/green tea powder. Apart from imparting an earthy flavour, they rank high on the health-foods list since they’re known to be packed with antioxidants.Tons of tart raspberries go into these pancakes as well and if I’m being honest, a pancake without berries ( in any form) is somewhat bizarre to me. To score some extra health points, I even topped them up with some overnight soaked chia seeds. They’re soft, moist, warm & addictive to say the least.
The recipe I’ve shared makes two pancakes but just double/triple the measurements to make more.

It would be wrong to post a pancake recipe without a mention of good ol’ IHOP. When the husband & me were in the US, midnight hunger pangs were always satiated by the delicious pancakes at IHOP. With a myriad of flavours like blueberry, chocolate, white chocolate-raspberry & strawberry banana, all stacked to perfection & dripping with  golden sticky syrup, any day is Sunday! This is where my love for pancakes grew so intense, I had to put a stop on it what with all the calorie gain and everything.
( P S. Imagine my surprise when I realised they have franchises here in Canada too)

I do hope you like & try these delicious pancakes and make your Sundays a little more magical!

1/2 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tbsp water

    1. Oh :(…I found a recipe for a basic pancake 6 years back ( not sure from where) and it’s worked perfectly! I just play around with flavours & in this case Matcha & raspberry…you can try it too, I’m sure it’ll work:)…The trick is not to beat the batter much.Keep it gentle & lumpy….as told on food Network:)

      Yeah Anupriya…at the risk of sounding lazy, I have to say it was tiring hopping between three blogs. I hope be feel a little more organized now:)
