Kids are having summer holidays and they say they are bored of eating dosa and idlies for breakfast. Usually they have cereals for breakfast and on Saturday and Sunday i make dosa or idly. Now i am making dosa batter for 3-4 days in a week and it used to be easy for me to feed the kids. But now they hate to eat dosa or idly (too much of anything is boring). So my elder girl wanted to eat pancakes as she still remember the pancake she ate last at my aunty's place. I had banana and cherries, so thought of including them in the pancake. Browsed couple of sites for the pancake recipes and took the basic recipe and added my idea of cherries sauce. There are recipes mentioning about cherry sauce but i didn't follow them as they need ingredients which i don't have nor i intent to buy them. The recipe is quite simple and tasty.
Maida (all purpose flour) 1 cup
Banana ripe 2
Baking powder 1tsp
Honey 3 tbsp
Milk 4-5 tbsp
Cinnamon small pc
Take cherries and cinnamon in a microwave safe bowl and pour water on the cherries until the water covers the cherries. Microwave high for 4-5 minutes (mine took 4-5 minutes) Check whether cherries are soft. Once they are soft remove the seeds and mash them with a spoon. The syrup should be in pouring consistency. Discard the cinnamon.
Take banana,egg,flour,baking powder,honey and milk in a mixer and run it for 1-2 minutes.
Take a ladle full of batter and pour on not so hot tawa/non-stick pan. Let it spread by itself. Wait for a minutes and flip it over. Again wait for another 2 minutes for the other side to cook.
Take pancakes on a plate and pour the cherry sauce. Before i poured cherry sauce i poured generous amount of honey. Serve hot....
