It's time to add a twist to your breakfast table with something unique and utterly delightful: CHĀ-Spiced Pancakes! This recipe infuses the classic pancake with the warm, aromatic flavours of masala chai, creating a fusion that's bound to leave your taste buds dancing.

- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp white sugar
- 1 1/4 cups milk
- 1 egg
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp CHĀ Masala spice blend


1. Prepare the Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and CHĀ masala. 

2. Mix the Wet Ingredients: In another bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, melted butter, and vanilla extract.

3. Combine: Pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients, stirring until just blended.

4. Cook the Pancakes: Heat a lightly oiled griddle or frying pan over medium-high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

5. Serve with Style: To elevate your spiced pancakes, serve them with maple syrup or honey, a dollop of whipped cream, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar. For an extra touch of decadence, add a few slices of fresh fruit and a handful of nuts.

Tips and Tricks:
Customize Your Spice Mix: Feel free to adjust the CHĀ spice ratio according to your preference. 
Ready-made Batter: I love the Pancake mix with buckwheat, teff and flax (gluten free) from Sweet Pea Pantry.
