I've been craving the idea of a taro pancake that is light and fluffy and I came up with this adaptation of various recipes... I think these came out quite well - they taste even better with coconut syrup.
- 1 1/2 cup flour- sifted
- 1/2 cup taro tea power
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 4 tbsp sugar
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- 2 eggs, separated
- 1 cup milk
- 3 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small cubes
- 1 tablespoon natural purple food coloring (optional)
Garnish with fresh fruit, Shredded coconut & macadamia nuts (optional)
Whisk together the eggs yolks, sugar, butter, vanilla, milk and food coloring if you desire. Add flour, taro tea powder, salt and baking powder into sifter and sift into bowl. Slowly pour mixture into bowl and stir until smooth. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Gently fold egg whites into batter. Add chopped butter and stir well. Heat a well greased large skillet over the medium heat. Goes perfect with coconut syrup!
