"I admit I'm a serious coffee addict. It's a welcome curse that Siggi has enabled ea dy since learning just how much it would improve our life together. I of course reward him w/recipes worthy of his service to the coffee cause. Found at an Australian cooking site, this recipe will soon be 1 of his rewards. I even got the help I needed to convert its metric-to-imperial measurements from my friend (Peggy) who lives in Canberra, Australia. (Pls see NOTE RE YIELD after the Prep Steps) ENJOY!"

Step 1

Mix the instant coffee crystals w/2 tbsp boiling water & set aside to cool.

Step 2

Sift the flour, baking powder & baking soda into a bowl. Add the sugar & a pinch of salt.

Step 3

In separate bowl, use a wooden spoon to beat the egg, yogurt, milk, melted butter & coffee mixture until combined. Add to dry ingredients & stir gently to combine.

Step 4

Heat a non-stick skillet over med heat & brush it w/some of the extra melted butter. Working in batches, add 1 tbsp of batter to the pan for ea pancake. Cook until bubbles form on the surface, then turn & cook for a further 1 min or until golden. Cover & keep warm while you repeat w/the remaining batter, brushing the pan w/extra butter as needed.

Step 5

Serve the pancakes in stacks w/fruit of choice & extra yogurt. Lightly dust w/powdered sugar as desired.

Step 6

NOTE RE YIELD: The recipe said "Makes 10". I assumed this to be the # of servings since only 1 tbsp batter was used per pancake. The recipe pic showed a plated serving of 2 lrg pancakes topped w/fruit, lightly dusted w/powdered sugar & a dollop of yogurt on-the-side. So it follows the net yield should be 20 pancakes if my assumptions are correct, but I'm a little uneasy about my logic.

Five stars all the way, all day twisted. They pancakes are so good. My company enjoyed them as much as I did. Only change I made to your recipe was to garnish it with whipped cream and caramel sauce (personal preference only). The pancakes were flavorful, tender and delicious. Not to sweet. Thank you for sharing a recipe that I will enjoy again and again. Made FYC tag game.
