Waffle Bowl – Cowch

IMG_3566

After reading great reviews from this place, I had to go to a newly open dessert bar at South Brisbane, Cowch. Greatly decorated with udders hanging from the ceiling as light, and the atmosphere was nice, which produced a nice relaxed vibe. Usually when I walked past it’s always crowded, but it was empty when we went. The staff were friendly and they offered us Salted Caramel Frozen Yoghurt (totally recommend it, tastes amaaaazing) The ordering process is a bit difficult, but everyone seemed to know what to do.

The food came quick, and as seen we got the Waffle Bowl with Cookies and Cream, and Crunchy Peanut Butter Ice Cream – toppings: Tim Tam and Mini Marshmallows. A bit messy to eat but overall quite tasty, although the prices of these do not come cheap.

I was really craving pancakes this morning and after browsing Tumblr for hours and seeing endless photos of pancakes I had to make some. This recipe is really simple and makes the fluffiest pancakes, probably the only recipe you need to know from now on ;)

Alright heres the recipe:

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Makes 8 decent sized pancakes.

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup dark or milk chocolate chips
  • Cooking spray

Method:

  1. Combine milk with vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to “sour”.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  3. Whisk egg and butter into “soured” milk. Pour the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and whisk until lumps are gone. *(Be careful not to over mix the batter otherwise the pancakes will turn out rubbery)*
  4. Add the chocolate chips then fold them in.
  5. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, and coat with cooking spray. Pour 1/4 cupfuls of batter onto the skillet, and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip with a spatula, and cook until browned on the other side.

Add a bit of ice cream if you feel like it, or even some whip cream!
