Ice Cream Pancakes

My kids love pancakes, and ice cream (who doesn’t?!).  So when I was flipping through one of their books and found a recipe for Ice Cream Pancakes, I knew I had to try it!  These are a cross between a pancake and french toast since they’re fried in oil.  Yum!

The original recipe called for vanilla ice cream, but I had chocolate chip – so that’s what I used (and that’s why you see chocolate flecks in the pancakes).  So grab the kids and make breakfast for dinner!

Ice Cream Pancakes Adapted from Mouse Cookies & More A Treasury

2 cups ice cream

1 cup water, warm

1 egg

2 1/2 cups flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

pinch of salt

1/4 cup canola oil for frying, add more as needed

In a medium bowl (preferably melamine with a pour-spout), place the ice cream, warm water, and egg.  Stir until combined.

Add the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir together until combined – but don’t overmix!  Lumps are okay.

Heat the oil in a cast iron pan (or nonstick skillet) on medium heat, and pour a couple of small pancakes (about 1/3 cup for each).

When the pancakes start to bubble on top (about 1 minute or so), flip them.  Cook for another minute on the other side, or until done.

*Sometimes I cut into the center of a pancake with a spatula to make sure it’s done!
