kitchen IQ + So Delicious Brunch! // Banana Pancakes

Banana Pancakes // Brunch with Kitchen IQ + So Delicious
At our house breakfast or brunch is a favorite. For us, a breakfast that includes a Mimosa automatically becomes Brunch.

This post combines my two favorite things: Banana Pancakes + Mimosas.  
This my friends, is the perfect start to any Sunday.

Who actually needs an excuse to day drink, I didn't think so.

The only juicing I have done is with my big automated juicer. I always wanted to try hand juicing with one of those funky cone shaped kitchen gadgets, which apparently is call a citrus reamer. So when KitchenIQ reached out to see if I would be on board with trying out a few of their Kitchen Gadgets to create a Brunch with So Delicious, I was totally on board. The first product I was dying to try out was their Prep + Measure Tool, which just so happens to be a 3 in 1 tool- totally a bonus! This nifty tool is a jumbo measuring cup, citrus reamer and gravy separator.

One blood orange gave the perfect amount of juice for 2 mimosas and the reamer was super easy to use, making juicing a small amount of fruit seamless. Really it took a matter of minutes.

You could use regular navel oranges, but look how pretty that blood orange mimosa is!

The second tool I tested out was the V-etched Better Zester . I have owned multiple zesters, what I really like about this one is the handy storage case with measurements. You can zest and measure at the same time and contain your zest mess..... I am a messy zester and this keeps clean up on point.

I zested a bit of blood orange to add to one of my all time favorite products from So Delicious - CocoWhip! Yes we are all capable of making homemade coconut whip, BUT  do you always have a can of coconut milk on the fridge ready to go? If you do, props to you!

In those moments where you just want a dollop of Cocowhip on your cocoa or a heaping pile on your pancakes for one, So Delicious to the rescue!

The third product that I played around with from KitchenIQ was the Whisk + Spatula 2 in 1. This is so cool, stir up  your batter with the whisk, tap off and give a quick rinse then use it as your spatula for flipping your pancakes. I was really surprised how well this worked, I really like how you can get right under the pancake for a seamless flip. Worked like a charm each time.

It also works well for scrapping around the sides of your batter bowl for the last of the batter.

Well hello there gorgeous

It's fitting, no? That I actually have a straight up Banana Pancake Recipe on the Blog, am I right? 

These mini banana pancakes are made extra decadent with the use of So Delicious Light Culinary Coconut Milk super rich and creamy, adding just a hint of coconut to the batter.

Pancakes are so stupid easy to make from scratch- there is absolutely no excuse not to make homemade panny cakes.

Banana Pancakes // Brunch with Kitchen IQ + So Delicious

 Banana Pancakes + Blood Orange Mimosas
Serves 2 - 4

you will need:

for the mimosas (2)
Juice of 1 large blood orange
Prosecco or Champagne 

for the pancakes
1 medium ripe banana, mashed
 1 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 heaping tbsp powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/3 cup So Delicious culinary coconut milk lite
non dairy butter for frying

for the topping
1 cup So Delicious Cocowhip
2 tsp blood orange zest'


assembly:

pancakes
In a medium mixing bowl mash banana really well - we personally do not like chunky bananas in our pancakes, so mash to your liking.

Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, powdered sugar and salt to the mixing bowl, Create a well in the middle of the flour mixture. Add culinary coconut milk and stir just until a lumpy batter forms.

Heat a griddle or griddle pan over medium heat. Grease the pan with a bit of butter.
A 1/4 cup at a time add the batter to the pan - ensuring you leave enough room between each pancake to flip without landing onto its neighbor. (I was able to fit 4 at a time on my pan)

Cook until small surface bubbles begin to form and pop. Flip and cook a couple minutes on the other side. You may need to adjust your heat if you are finding your pancakes are browning too quickly.

 Remove from pan and keep warm in oven prior to serving.

mimosas
Juice your blood orange(s).
Pour into champagne flute and top off with Prosecco or Champagne

topping
Place cocowhip in a bowl and add zest - stir well.


Enjoy!
