To make sure that the sweetness of the dark and white chocolate is balanced with the savory olive oil, we’ll need to gather the perfect combination of ingredients.
To begin, we’ll need two tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. This will create the perfect base for our pancakes, giving them a subtle yet unmistakable flavor. We’ll also need to gather the dry ingredients. To do this, combine one and a half cups of all-purpose flour, one and a half teaspoons of baking powder, one teaspoon of baking soda, and one teaspoon of salt in a large bowl.
Next, we’ll create the pancake mixture by combining the dry ingredients with one cup of the pancake mixture, two large eggs, one cup of milk, and one teaspoon of vanilla extract in a large mixing bowl. As you whisk the ingredients together, make sure that the mixture is lump-free.
The Recipe How-To
Now that you have all the necessary ingredients, it’s time to get cooking! This easy pancake recipe starts with combining the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Start by adding the flour, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of baking soda, and 1 teaspoon of baking powder. Mix everything together and set aside.
In a separate bowl, use the electric mixer to combine the wet ingredients. Start by adding 1 cup of buttermilk, 2 large eggs, and 1 tablespoon of the best butter you can find. Then, add 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and mix until everything is combined.
Next, add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix until everything is just combined. Don’t over mix, as this will make the pancakes tough.
Now it’s time to cook your pancakes! Preheat an electric griddle to medium heat and lightly grease the surface with butter. For each pancake, pour about 1/4 cup of the batter onto the griddle. Cook until the edges are set and then flip and cook the other side.
Once the pancakes are finished, top them with your favorite flavors. You can add dark chocolate chips, caramelized white chocolate, or any other toppings you enjoy. For a special treat, you can also add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
There you have it, your fluffy and flavorful olive oil pancakes with dark chocolate and caramelized white chocolate are now ready to be enjoyed. Serve them up with a dollop of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup for a truly delicious breakfast. Enjoy!
Substitutions And Variations
If you’re looking to mix things up with your fluffy and flavorful olive oil pancakes, there are plenty of substitutions and variations you can make to the recipe. Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can switch up the ingredients and flavor to create a unique and delicious breakfast.
Let’s start with the olive oil. I like to use a medium saut for this recipe, but you can substitute it for melted butter if you’d like. This will give the pancakes a richer flavor, and the butter will add a golden color to the surface of the pancake.
You can also make a healthier pancake recipe by adding in some cornmeal. I like to use one cup of cornmeal to give the pancakes a slightly crunchy texture. Plus, the cornmeal will also help to make the pancakes a bit fluffier.
Finally, if you want to add a little zing to the pancakes you can incorporate some lemon zest. I like to add a tablespoon of zest to the wet ingredients, and this will give the pancakes a burst of citrusy goodness. Plus, the zest will help to activate the other ingredients, so you’ll get even more delicious flavor in each and every bite.
The variations and substitutions to this fluffy and flavorful olive oil pancakes recipe don’t stop there. Feel free to get creative and use whatever ingredients and flavors you’d like. The key is to keep the wet ingredients at room temperature and to watch the surface of the pancakes for little bubbles. This will let you know when it’s time to flip the pancakes.
So go ahead and get creative with your fluffy and flavorful olive oil pancakes. With a few simple substitutions and variations, you can make a delicious breakfast that’s sure to please all your taste buds.
Storing And Freezing Suggestions:
Now that you’ve mastered the art of creating fluffy and flavorful olive oil pancakes, it’s time to make sure you store and freeze them properly.
If you’re anything like me, you want to make sure your pancakes are as fresh as possible. To do this, I like to store them in a separate bowl, covered with plastic wrap. This will help to maintain their moisture and keep them from drying out.
When it comes to freezing pancakes, make sure you let them cool completely before placing them in the freezer. For best results, you’ll want to separate the pancakes into individual servings before freezing them. This will make it easier to pull out a single serving when you’re ready to eat.
You can also whip up a batch of soft peaks, and freeze them in a separate bowl. This will make it easier to add air to your pancakes when you’re ready to cook them. Just make sure you break the peaks into small pieces, so they’ll thaw quickly.
Finally, don’t forget to use true products like fresh buttermilk and real butter. This will give you a good hotcake with the taste of a good buttermilk pancake. If you want a thinner pancake, you can always use quality buttermilk as a substitute for regular milk.
With a few simple substitutions and variations, you can create different flavors of pancakes. And with the right storage and freezing suggestions, you can easily enjoy your delicious pancakes anytime. So go ahead and whip up a batch of these fluffy and flavorful olive oil pancakes with dark chocolate and caramelized white chocolate. They’ll be sure to make your taste buds happy!
