These are a pancake lovers dream come true – pancakes stuffed with brown sugar, cinnamon and nuts. Hot, gooey and so so yummy!
I have been craving these for a while. Ever since I had them in the summer time, I have been dreaming about making them. I know, I know, some people dream of climbing Mt. Everest. Not me, I dream of pancakes! They are little more time consuming than normal pancakes, so once the fall-back-to-school-thanksgiving-christmas-new-years dust had settled, I finally tackled them!
I must confess that I devoured more than my fair share of these. And the next night, I made them again! I think they would also be delicious for breakfast with a hot cup of coffee. But that would mean waking up early… mehh!
The time you need: 1.5 hours Yield: 8 pancakes
The things you need:
- 1 cup lukewarm water (I usually do it on the warmer side)
- 2 tbsp white sugar
- 2 tsp yeast
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp oil
- 2 cups flour (I used whole wheat flour… I felt less guilty eating so many! :))
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp chopped nuts (I used almonds)
The how to:
- In a bowl, put 1 cup of warm water, white sugar, yeast, salt and oil
- Mix the ingredients well
- Add the flour and mix it all together
- Cover with plastic wrap and let the dough rise (I heat my oven for a few minutes and then turn the light on… and turn the oven off, and let it rise in there)
- While to dough is rising, make the filling: mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and nuts together in a small bowl
- After about an hour it should have doubled in size.
- Knead the dough a little to release the bubbles
- Cover again and let it continue to rise 10-20 minutes
- Flour a clean surface (important step!) and knead the dough.
- Divide into 8 balls
- Flatten the ball in your hand, fill the center as full as you can, and close it up.
- Lightly oil a pan on medium heat and place a ball on the pan
- Let it fry for 30 seconds or so and flip it over and flatten it out… like a pancake
- Flip it over again and fry until golden brown
- Eat hot and enjoy! 🙂
“Oh so good!” – the troops approve!
