Spinach Pancakes


This recipe makes about 7-8 pancakes of 18cm in diameter.

Ingredients:
- 2 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 large banana
- ½ cup (50 g) white whole wheat flour
- 11/2 cup (250 ml) low-fat fresh milk
- A handful of baby spinach
- 1 TBS dried date paste or 2 dried dates pitted
- 2 TBS wheatgerm (optional)
- 1 TBS brewer's yeast (optional)
- 1 TBS olive oil

Directions:

1. Blend all ingredients together except egg in a blender.

2. Add eggs and mix well, but don’t overbeat the batter. Stop stirring once the mixture is moist or the pancakes will be tough (don’t worry about a few lumps)

3. Heat pan until hot (Its temperature is just right when a few drops of cold water dropped on the pan will jump and sizzle. If the pan is not sufficiently hot, the water will lie there and boil. If it is too hot, the water will evaporate instantly).

4. When the pan is hot, add some oil just enough to spread a thin layer on the pan by rubbing it with a piece of kitchen roll when making the first piece of pancake.

5. Turn to medium-low heat (no. 7 on my stove) and pour in a ladle of mixture just enough to spread it to cover the whole circumference of the pan.

6. Cook until the surface of the pancake is filled with bubbles and the underside has turned slightly brown (about 45 secs to 1 min). Raise the edge of the pancake with the wooden spatula to test if it is firm and brown.

7. Flip over and cook the other side for 30 secs more. DO NOT flip again or the pancake will be tough. (Although you may be tempted to do so, don’t use the spatula to press down the pancake or it will be heavy).

Storage:
Cool them completely before freezing. Freeze them in freezer bags between sheets of waxed paper for 3 months. To re-heat, place frozen pancakes single layer on a baking sheet in a 190°C oven for 7-10 mins. or microwave each pancake for 20 secs.

Additional Comments:

Daddy FECS and J really enjoyed it when I made it the first time :-) Daddy said he has never seen J ate so eagerly trying to squeeze every bit of the pancake into his mouth. That made mommy very happy of course :-)

Add all ingredients into the blender except eggs.

Blend until smooth. I use my smoothie program.

Crack two eggs into it.


Blend lightly. I gave it 1-2 pulse until speed 1.

Now it is ready to be made into pancakes on the pan :-)

You can also blend it using a hand blender.
