Pancakes are popular and most loved breakfast preparations for people of all age groups. These fluffy discs are a quick and easy food option that is great to taste. But, having the same kind of flavorings day after day may make even fun food preparations, such as pancakes, boring and mundane too…
Adding a variety of toppings may add an element of surprise, but creating a variation in the pancake recipe sounds more, isn’t it? And, how about combining the two most loved breakfast preparations in one? We are talking about coffee and pancakes.
For this recipe, you simply need freshly ground coffee beans, to add maximum aroma to your preparation, apart from basic pancake ingredients. You will be surprised how just by adding one simple ingredient, you can create such an interesting dish and get a break from the regular pancakes you are so used to having morning after morning!
As shared earlier, the key to getting a great aroma in this dish is by using freshly ground coffee beans and for that, a manual coffee grinder comes in handy. This means, you just need a small and handy device to savor a decadent breakfast dish without burning a hole in your pocket.
