Pancake for Rain

Hi friends,

 Homewarming has moved to new home here.



It’s raining everyday since last Friday. The great thing about rain is it transforms this place the variety of greens. The grasses come alive and the leaves push themselves out to the world. But the worst thing living in this season in this city is unexpected blackout. I wake up with the mood of baking, but surprising my house is out of electricity. I use electric oven, so it doesn’t work. In this rain, I would love my house to smell like egg and butter in the morning. I feel so disappointed. But then I’m thinking of my old recipe the easy and simple Chocolate and Raisin Pancake which I posted earlier, and Yaseen has begging me to make for the last few days. Sadly my cocoa powder tin is empty, so all we can have is a raisin pancake.

Raisin Pancake


1 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 large egg

¼ cup milk

 ¼ cup sugar

1/4 cup raisins- soaked in hot water for 2 minutes and rinse dry.

20 gm soft butter

Oil or butter to fry

Sift the flour and baking powder together and keep aside.

Whisk soft butter and sugar until sugar lightly dissolved, and then add egg and milk. Gradually add flour mixture to make a thick consistency batter. Add raisin and mix well.

Heat a pan with a thin coat of oil or butter, then add about 2-3 tbsp of batter and fry off until golden and cooked on both sides.

Serve with honey or more butter.

    I love the idea of adding raisins to pancakes. I had never thought of that before. And honey is such a good topping; whenever we’re out of maple syrup, I use honey, and it’s just as good.
