Corn Pancakes with Mango Cream Topping




So I had some left over cooked corn grits which I had boiled for corn bread, and I didn't want to waste it. I also wanted to have something mildly sweet and fruity. I had mangoes, it's summer and the markets are overflowing with the gorgeous fruit! I suppose everyone will have their fridges stocked with some variety or the other. Anyway, I had mangoes and cream, flour, sugar, vanilla, and corn grits!!


Ingredients:

For the pancakes:-

Maida (allpurpose flour)..................................1 n 1/2 cups
Baking powder.................................................1 tsp
Egg..................................................................1, beaten
Sugar..............................................................6-7 tsps
Milk................................................................1 cup
Vanilla essence.............................................a few drops
Corn grits.....................................................4 tbsps, cooked


Raw corn grits. This has to be boiled
Sift the flour with the baking powder. Whisk the egg with the sugar and vanilla essence. Add it along with the milk, to the flour and mix well to make a smooth batter. Add the corn grits.





On a griddle or pan heat a bit of oil and pour a scoop of batter, to make a 4" pancake.


Make sure the pan is not too hot, keep it to a medium heat. The batter will rise and begin to brown. Turn over and cook the other side to a light brown.


When all the pancakes are made, puree the pulp of one mango. If it isn't sweet enough you may add a few teaspoons of castor sugar. Whip up about half a cup of cream. If you want to, you can add a few drops of vanilla to the cream.



Now, when the pancakes have cooled, put a heaped teaspoon of cream in the centre and spread it a wee bit. On top of the cream add a heaped tablespoon of mango puree and using a fork swirl the two around to get a ripple effect.




Tan-ta-da.....your amazing mango cream
 pancakes are ready, just bite into one!
