Moose Maple Butter with Cinnamon and Vanilla Pancakes
I love maple syrup! I love sugary goodness and maple syrup that wonderfully distinctive taste that makes pancakes and French Toast a far more decadent affair. When I heard about Maple Butter of course I was very intrigued and knew I had to try it.
Moose Maple Butter looks like a richer colour butter but when you take off the lid the smell of maple syrup is strong and sweet. It’s the sort of happy smell that makes you relax and smile.
I decided to try an idea of cinnamon and vanilla pancakes with the maple butter and they worked incredibly well! I loved putting a blob on butter on the pancakes and letting it melt. I dusted the pancakes with extra cinnamon and they went down a treat. I also added a little fresh banana too and the maple butter worked very well with that.
– 120g of plain flour
– tiny pinch of salt
– 2 medium eggs
– 500ml pint of milk
– half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon
– quarter of a teaspoon of vanilla extract
– Moose Maple Butter
– Sieve the flour, salt and cinnamon in to a bowl
– Add the egg, vanilla and milk and whisk it up until smooth.
– It will appear a little runnier than you would have expected but leave it for 5 minutes before using and it will thicken up enough to make some blooming good pancakes.
– Heat up a non stick pan and add a small blob of butter when the pan is hot. Add the mix to the size and shape you want. I made 3 small ones instead of 1 large one as I like a stack.
-The first side of the pancake will be cooked when it can move freely on the non stick pan, flip the pancake over either by tossing it or by using a spatula.
– When both sides are golden brown, take the pan off the heat and serve the pancakes straight away.
– Dust with a little more cinnamon and add a good blob of Moose Maple Butter and allow to melt in.
