The simplest foods are often the most comforting! I love how a biting into a mango feels like sunshine in my face. I love how creaminess of avocado and githeri feels like melty body butter on my skin. I love how labania za maziwa feel like a shower of forehead kisses. I love how chai masala feels like comfortable, familiar excitement. And I love how pancakes- specifically banana pancakes feel like staying in bed longer on a slow Sunday morning!
Banana pancakes are so simple to make, and are one of my favorite things to have. I always switch it up when I make mine, but my faaaaavorite way to enjoy them is with my favorite warm spice taking center stage- as iliki banana pancakes. You will fall in love with this one too!
I am definitely a crepe person. But it does not hurt to once in a while betray what you feel is connected to your soul and cross over to the pancake side once in a while. Because of the density of pancake batter, it leaves more room for adding more ingredients without necessarily weighing it down. I was in a major dilemma when I conceptualized this recipe since I had a butternut in my pantry that had been sitting there for 60 years as though it is paying rent. I spoke about this dilemma on twitter, and while most very helpful suggestions for recipes pointed towards making a butternut soup, I wanted to do something different with mine. I have already made a bomb butternut soup, and this time, I crawled outside what is farmiliar and that is how my three spice butternut pancakes!
Easy to make, deep layered flavors, and soft and spongy too! You know how we roll; #KK recipes will never let you down baby!
I love making pancakes, not because they are easy to make (but that’s def part of the reason ;)), but because they take up flavors so well and leave plenty of room for experimentation. For these pancakes, I made them with the flavors I enjoy most in my cocktails: mango, cardamom and a hint of ginger. I did not foresee the warmth and explosiveness that I experienced, and for sure I must try this out soon once again. Nothing makes my breakfast more thrilling than knowing what I am going to eat has a combination of my three favorite flavors: sweetness of mango, very subtle warmth of ginger and spiciness of freshly crushed cardamom. Bite after warm flavorful bite and an empty plate later, my pancakes fit tightly but happily in my tummy. I gave one more thanks to the Lord above for a beautiful breakfast and gratefulness for a high metabolism. The best way to start your day is with some good food right? Make sure it my mango ginger pancakes!
