Eggless Dates Pancakes

I like pancakes and I am a great fan of IHOP pancakes. Whenever we go there, our first choice would be the soft and fluffy pancakes. Today I thought of making pancakes for breakfast. But I wanted to make something different. I had a box of dates and thought of making pancakes with them. I am happy that my experiment came out good and we enjoyed the breakfast. Its a simple recipe , I have used wheat flour and its eggless too. Hope you too will enjoy this healthy breakfast.

Ingredients:

1 cup Wheat Flour
10-12  pitted Dates
1 cup Milk
1 tsp Baking powder
1-2 tbsp Sugar or to taste
1/4 tsp Salt
Oil

Soak the dates in 1/2 cup luke warm milk. (I put the dates in milk and kept for 45 sec in microwave.)This helps to make the dates soft. Keep aside for 10 minutes. Then put in a blender and make a smooth paste.

In a bowl, add the dry ingredients- wheat flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.  Mix well. Now add the dates paste to this and slowly add rest of the milk. Mix well. Since the dates paste will be a little thick, you may have to adjust the consistency by adding extra milk or water (I added about 1/2 cup water) .The batter shouldnt be too thick or too thin. Mix until the batter is smooth without any lumps. 

Heat the pan. Lightly grease with oil or butter. Pour a ladle of batter on the pan. The bubbles will start forming on the top and cook for about 2-3 minutes. Then turn to other side and cook for another minute or so.Both the sides should be brown.



Serve hot. Drizzle some honey on top.
