Pancake-bombs are mini super-fluffy pancakes with delicious treat inside. If you like pancake like me, you will surely love this recipe.
Things you need:
- All purpose flour (2.5 cups)
- 3 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 2 tsp salt (skip this for salted butter)
- Thick yogurt (160 gm.)
- Melted butter (80 gm.)
- 3 small eggs.
- Milk chocolate/ Nutella for stuffing
- Vanilla essence (optional)
- Non-stick mold/pan
All these ingredients are necessary for making the perfect pancake bombs. It is recommended to use unsalted butter for this recipe and salt as per your taste. I did not have unsalted butter at home, so I skipped adding salt to the mix. It worked perfectly fine for me.
80 grams of butter is required for the batter. You will need more butter to grease the pan. Use butter or a flavorless oil to grease it. But using butter will pay off in rich flavor!
These portion for is making 35 pancake bombs.
- Mix all the dry ingredients first- flour, baking soda + baking powder, sugar, salt.
- Crack the eggs and keep the yolk and egg-white separately.
- Mix the egg-yolks with yogurt and melted butter. Melted butter should not be too hot, in that case it will cook the egg!
- Add wet mix to the dry mix and gently combine it. Add the egg yolks at the last to the mixture. This will ensure the ultimate fluffy texture we are digging for.
- Keep the mix aside for at least half an hour.
- Chop some chocolate of your taste in small pieces.
- Heat the non-stick mold on low flame, brush it with melted butter.
- Take the pan away from pan. First fill mold half way through, put a chocolate piece and gently press it. Cover the chocolate piece with more batter. The mold should not be overflowing as it would expand after getting cooked.
- Place the pan on low flame with a cover on. You will see bubbles on the top of the batter in about a minute- this is when you need flip of pancake bomb upside down in individual molds.
The flipping part was a little challenging for me. But it was all worth it! Pouring the batter into the mold has to done pretty fast, otherwise the first one will get burnt by the time you finish pouring into the last one. That’s why I suggest you to take out the pan from flame while pouring the batter! 🙂
Pancake bombs taste absolutely delicious when served hot, with chocolate slightly melted inside. If you feel fancy enough you can add some fruits, chocolate sauce for dressing.
