Happy Birthday Pancakes !!!


Thats the year which made a big decision of my life. A decision that changed my life, made me a dentist.I got admission in Dr D. Y. Patil dental college. That was also the year when I was introduced to few amazing girls in my class, who later on went to be become my best buddies till today.

                        Bijal, Aditi, Priya, Dhruti, Aksha, Chaitra & Zeeba.. So many wonderful memories together. We studied together, ate lunch boxes during lectures, played pictionary in boring lectures, called each other at 4 in the morning on exam day to make sure we are all awake and studying,,,,

                    Now twelve years have passed by and life has changed so much.. few of us got married, few have children, few are not in Mumbai, we don't talk that often now...Many things changed but one thing hasn't changed.Even if we meet after long periods of time, we can still chat about anything and everything..

 Feel blessed to have such friends in my life.. Today is birthday of a special friend Bijal and I so wish I was with her to celebrate. But.....

So here's my pancake birthday cake for her with a wish that she has many more cheerful and happy birthdays to come..

  • 1 cup all purpose flour(maida)
  • 3 tbsp sugar 
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 ½ tbsp melted butter

  • Sift together 1 cup all purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, butter and milk
  • Add to flour mixture, stirring so that there are no lumps
  • If the batter seems too thick to pour, add a little more milk.
  • Cook on a hot, greased griddle, using about 1/4 cup of batter for each pancake.
  • Cook until bubbly, a little dry around the edges, and lightly browned on the bottom; turn and brown the other side.
  • This will give you 4 pancakes..
  • Serve with maple syrup/ butter/ honey

I made few changes to pancake method. I added 2 drops of red colour to ¼ batter. I put white batter in one plastic squeezy bottle and red batter in smaller plastic squeezy bottle. Then I piped shapes on the griddle, keeping the flame very low.

We had fun enjoying these pretty pancakes...
