Many people think truffles should stick to their roots. Not as in the roots of their host trees in which they are harvested from, but their roots in a culinary sense (mainly French and Italian cuisines). Like I've told most people who are inquisitive about truffles, we are here to change that narrative and provide great recipes you can use in your home, with foods that are common in American cuisine. Sure we love truffles with eggs for breakfast, but have you tried truffle pancakes? Maybe truffle pancakes with some truffle whipped cream? Our sauces make this easy!
Black Truffle Pancakes
About 6 Pancakes
This has been my pancake recipe for years! I am not much of a sweets person, but when I met my wife, I had to perfect to breakfast items, pancakes and waffles. You can make minor adjustments as you see fit, but this is how we prefer them!
This recipe can easily be halved or doubled to fit your needs.
1 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
2 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp white vinegar
2 tsp Truffletopia Black Truffle Sauce
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 egg, white and yolk separated
In a medium to large bowl, add milk and vinegar and give a quick stir.
In a separate medium to large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix together.
Separate the egg yolk(s) and egg white(s). Leave the white(s) in a small bowl to be beaten, and add the egg yolk(s) and vanilla to the milk.
Add Truffletopia Black Truffle Sauce to the wet ingredients and whisk together.
Whisk dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, until smooth or no lumps. (It's important to do dry into wet to avoid creating lumps)
Beat the egg white(s) very well with a mixers or beater, or you can use clean whisk or fork and do it by hang. (The more the egg white is beaten, the fluffier your pancakes will be. They can be beaten until stiff peaks, if desired)
Fold egg whites into your batter, but don't overmix.
Cook pancakes at desired size over a medium low heat (you may need to adjust during cooking), until lightly browned on the bottom and air bubbles are on the top. Flip and cook other side, until lightly browned, about a minute.
Enjoy with syrup, butter, whipped cream, and/or fruit toppings!
