Turkish Coffee Pancakes

Tonight I decided to try making these pancakes again but to add more coffee for a stronger coffee flavor. I will give you both strong and weaker coffee versions so you can decide what is best for you. Please keep in mind that I am referring to the Turkish grind of coffee and I don't imply that I am correctly making Turkish coffee. You must love coffee to enjoy the stronger version but for me and my husband it is perfect.

Turkish Coffee Pancakes made with stronger coffee.

Turkish Coffee
4 Tablespoons Turkish ground coffee. I used a French Roast that I had the coffee shop ground on a Turkish grind
1/2 cup water for stronger coffee or 1 cup water for weaker coffee

Add the coffee grounds to a small pot or a Turkish coffee pot and add the water. Put the pot on the stove on a medium heat. Once it comes to a boil lightly stir the mixture until all the coffee grounds are fully combined. Let it come back to a boil and turn off the heat. If you are using a Turkish coffee pot watch the mixture continually because it will boil over.

Turkish Coffee Pancakes
3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cups buckwheat flour
2 Tablespoons baking powder
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoons cardamon
1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup Turkish coffee
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
2 Tablespoon oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix the flour, buckwheat flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon, cardamon, ground ginger and salt into a medium size bowl. Add Turkish coffee, milk, egg, oil and vanilla to the bowl and whisk all the ingredients together until just combined. Heat a pan or griddle on medium heat and spray with oil. To make smaller size pancakes pour about one tablespoon of batter and cook about 1 minute on each size. For large pancakes pour about three tablespoons of batter for each pancake. These will take a little longer to cook on each side.

Serve with maple syrup or Turkish coffee icing

Turkish coffee icing
2 Tablespoons of Turkish coffee
