Get your chai latte vibes in these delicious whole wheat ginger chai pancakes.
Okay so crepe pancakes hold a special place in my heart and I don’t make american style pancakes often. But boy I’m glad I did with this recipe. They are just rich and packed with such flavour
This is my ideal Sunday breakfast. The gingery chai flavours are just so warming and comforting. I promise, make a stack of these for anyone and they will be very grateful not to mention satisfied. Rather than typical white flour that’s widely associated with pancakes, I waved goodbye to that bleached white stuff and used a cup of Whole wheat and Oats instead.
These really are filling and ideal for a lazy Sunday as they don’t require much work at all. UNLESS you don’t have a non stick pan, because you may end up trying to rescue a lot of sticky pancakes. Lucky for me I have a wonderful new non stick pan (big ups to mum for that) it was a lot easier than if I used my PITCH BLACK BURNT UP old pan. I mean it was literally dead. I blame pure laziness for not getting a new one sooner. I was using it for absolutely ages without a handle. It really was embarrassing. Come to think of it flipping pancakes without a handle for over a year with out a handle is a skill right? Right??
Back to these pancakes! The maple cream cheese frosting gave it an indulgent taste which made me feel like I was eating brunch at a fancy cafe/restaurant. But I wasn’t I was chilling at home wearing my Pyjamas watching Real housewives of Atlanta. Don’t judge me.

In a separate bowl add eggs and milk, grate some fresh ginger about 3 inches worth or to your taste. Also add in oil and honey, mix until fully incorporated.

To make the maple cream mix all of the ingredients thoroughly until nice and smooth. Add on the side or on top of pancakes. Enjoy!
