Pancake Stories Food Blog - Introduction and a tack of Chocolate Oreo Pancakes


Hello new friend and welcome to pancakestories.com! If you happen to like pancakes, you found the right spot. Let us tell a little bit about ourselves. We are 3 German students in our twenties, living in Halle. Two of us are cooks (Kevin and Hannah) and one is a photographer (Jana). We wanted to start our own creative project and making pancakes seemed like the perfect fit for us. Our team was formed back in the summer of 2014. We decided to call our blog Pancake Stories.

We all have different tasks: Kevin is the main cook, he comes up with recipes, flavors and he flips the pancakes to perfection; Hannah makes our frostings, sauces and baked goods and takes care of our props and handmade decorations; Jana takes and edits the pictures and manages the blog. With our stories we intend to give inspiration to all the pancake lovers out there. What will the future of this project be? We can only guess. Will the pancakes take over the world? Probably.


A Yummy Stack of Chocolate Oreo Pancakes with a Glass of Milk - brought to you by Pancake Stories.

Since we didn't want to leave without showing you one of our first recipes... Meet the Oreo Pancakes! Sweet and simple. We don't know about you, but we are Oreo enthusiasts. We didn't want to just put crushed cookies on top. The whole stack needed to look and taste like giant Oreos! The dough is full of dark cocoa-powder to get that typical tastes-like-a-burnt-cookie thing everyone loves. Of course the cream is sweetened with real vanilla.



Ingredients:

For the dough:
regular white flour 180g
dark cocoa powder 70g
sugar 35g + 15g
baking powder 4g
baking soda 4g
pinch of salt

4 eggs
76ml milk
50g Butter
For the cream:
one mug of processed cream
one vanilla pod
15g of vanilla sugar
a couple of Oreo cookies

Lets get to it:
  1. Mix all dry ingredients and leave 15g of sugar on the side,stir gently.
  2. separate the eggs,whisk the egg yolk and combine with melted butter and 15g sugar
  3. Whisk the egg white until foam appears; it still needs to be fluid. When finished, pour in the egg yolk mixture.
  4. When you combined all the fluid parts, stir in the dry ingredients, do it carefully with as little power as possible. If you overdo the mixing at this stage, you won't get a fluffy pancake. If you think that the dough isn't moist enough - pour in another sip of milk.
  5. You did it! Now put the bowl into the fridge for approximately 10 minutes.
  6. Heat up the pan and pour a circle of dough into the already hot pan and wait until small bubbles start to appear and the pancakes start to get browner. Try to flip the pancake. If you did everything right, you will see how the pancake grows up to one inch. 
  7. Whip the precessed cream until it is solid (not butter). Add some Vanilla Sugar; then cut the vanilla pod lengthwise, scrape out the core and mix it into the cream. Put the vanilla cream between each pancake and on top of the pancake stack.
  8. Put crushed Oreo cookies and crumbles on top.
  9. Enjoy your breakfast with a glass of milk. :)
