Nestlé gave me a little present… a bag with some of their products.
I used to design lots of Nestlé packaging while I lived in Mexico City (I worked in a design firm and Nestlé was one big client there), did you know this?
I enjoyed that soo much, it was a great experience. I felt very creative over there, so when I see some of the Nestlé products and ideas I still think of those times. back then, I spent many hours during the day looking at food products, photos and recipes; that helped sparkle my love for cooking which has been in me since I was a child…
Anyways, back to the subject… Nestlé also gave me a recipe idea for Father’s day: Chocolate and Banana Pancakes. I immediately thought of Derek, I know he loves chocolate and chocolate pancakes so me and Adrian made them, we let him sleep in and voila! Here, see the results for yourself!
I’m including the recipe, it is really delicious and very very easy to make. Adrian and me had fun making them AND eating them! I added chocolate chips in the mix and strawberries on top, REALLY GOOD!
Abuelita® & Banana Pancakes
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup NESTLE ABUELITA Chocolate Syrup
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 medium bananas, chopped
1 medium banana, sliced
COMBINE flour, milk, Abuelita syrup, eggs, oil, baking powder and salt in large bowl; stir until blended. Stir in chopped bananas.
GREASE large, nonstick skillet. Heat over medium heat. Pour about 1/4 cup pancake batter for each pancake onto hot skillet; cook for 3 minutes or until bubbles appear. Turn over; cook for an additional 3 minutes or until lightly golden. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm with sliced banana and additional Abuelita syrup.
Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 6 mins
Note: I was not payed to write this post, I received a bag with Nestlé products and recipes, it was my idea to make the pancakes and talk about it!
