Spiced Persimmon Pancakes: You Will Love Them Everyday.
- Cast Iron Griddle
- Wooden Spoon
- 2 Mixing Bowls
- 1 cup All-Purpose Flour
- 1 cup 2 Percent Milk
- 2 medium Persimmons, fully ripe extra ripe is better
- 1 medium Egg
- 1 tsp. Salt
- 2 tsp. Baking Powder
- 1 tbsp. Brown sugar
- ½ tsp. Almond Essence
- 1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
- 4 tbsp. Unsalted Butter
- Sift the flour, salt, and baking powder into a mixing bowl using a strainer or sieve.
- Each persimmon fruit should be peeled and quartered. Blend persimmon pieces until the texture resembles apple sauce.
- Transfer the persimmon puree to the next mixing bowl. Add the egg, milk, sugar, cinnamon powder, vanilla extract, almond essence, and nutmeg to the persimmon. Using a whisk, thoroughly combine the ingredients.
- Mix the persimmon and flour mixtures together with a wooden spoon or whisk.
- For 2 minutes, heat the griddle over medium to high heat. I used a cast iron griddle because it evenly distributes heat and produces a nice crust on the outside of the pancakes. My griddle holds 2 large-size persimmon pancakes.If you don't have a griddle, a regular nonstick frying pan will suffice.
- Reduce heat to medium-low. Add about 1 tbsp. of unsalted butter on the heated cast iron griddlePour ½ cup of the persimmon pancake mixture onto the buttered griddle. I personally like large pancakes, but you can make smaller ones if you prefer.
- Look for bubbles that will form on the pancake's surface. The formation of air bubbles indicates that the pancakes are ready to be turned over. Add another dab of butter to the griddle and repeat the process for the remaining pancake batter.
- Flip the pancake carefully with a pancake spatula and cook for another 1-2 minutes, or until golden brown.
