Eggless Chocolate Pancakes With Orange Syrup- SFC Jan'15

After a long time I started my Sweet Fantasy Club Series again with two new recipes. Here we were shared two sweet delicacies one relate to Indian sweets and second relate to fusion or international dessert. This time I cooked Eggless Chocolate Pancakes with Glazed Orange Syrup.

For this recipe first I have to prepare pancakes with some combination of ingredients like all purpose flour, baking powder, sugar, milk and oil. To garnish these pancakes I prefer to prepare orange syrup with orange juice and sugar. There are more options are available for garnishing like dazzle with chocolate sauce or serve with honey and fresh berries, bananas and oranges.

4 Tbsps. Cocoa Powder
1/2 Tsp. Baking Powder
Sugar to taste

Heat the non-stick griddle and drizzle little olive oil. Pour ladle full batter and cook till to bubble appears. Don't spread the batter like chilas or dosas to make soft and fluffy pancakes.

Notes: if you want to cook plain or vanilla flavor then avoid cocoa powder.
For garnishing, you can use chocolate syrup or fresh fruits and honey also.
You can add wheat flour too instant of using all purpose flour.
If you are vegan, then add half orange juice and half water for making batter instead of using milk.
