Fig Pancakes

I must tell you, it wasn’t until I posed the question of holiday flavors and someone said figs that I even thought about fig pancakes. I love having a blog and being able to ask and comment with others about cool new things to try and do.  I hadn’t really ever tried figs, let alone make a pancake with them.  If I don’t like something, I’m not going to post a blog with a recipe…that’s silly.  I’m also not going to post a recipe that takes more than 15 minutes and has 100 ingredients because that isn’t my style.  So with that I decided to attempt to make some figcakes.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted to try making a savory fig recipe or sweet (both are apparently pretty common?).  But sweet always captures my heart so I chose them.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup figs (I bought a bag of already chopped because I’m of the simple type)

1/4 cup walnuts

1 egg

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 tablespoon oil

1/2-1 cup milk depending on the consistency you like (either thick or more thin crepe like pancakes)

1 teaspoon cinnamon, vanilla extract and nutmeg

Sweetner to taste (I added ¼ cup stevia cup for cup as well as 2 tablespoons of brown sugar)

Mix and cook on the griddle. 

Topped with some peanut butter.

These were actually surprisingly good.  I was pretty surprised since a week prior I had no idea or clue what figs were.  So certainly a pancake in the rotation de LOLZ.

Question for you: Do you like figs?
