My kids still love pancake mornings so today, after I made the basic pancake recipe for them, I moved on to try the arroz version.
Over the last few years, I moved my pancake prep straight to a blender. Forget the sifting and beating and all that. Not worth it. And, because I made the basic recipe a few times Nitza's way, I'm entitled to my own way. And, this way gets the consistency to more of what we know and love. Round pancakes. Not those thin, runny bell-shaped pancakes from my first try at Cuban Pancakes.
To refresh your memory, the basic pancake recipe (now in osterizer form):
Sift 1 1/4c flour, 1 1/2t polvos royal (double acting baking powder), 1T sugar and 1/2t salt in the blender.
Add an egg, 1 1/4c milk and 2T butter.
Flip and serve. Round circles. Not runny bell-shapes.
This sweet and savory pancake is really quite good. It has the subtle Killer Rice taste, but the sweetness of the pancake. Well played, Nitza, well played.
