Ethiopia Coffee Pancakes With Blueberry Maple Syrup

Blueberry Coffee Pancakes 1 2

A blogger buddy of mine has been hounding me to get on that specialty coffee life, and to be honest, I was hesitant because I just didn’t want to leave my store-bought Dunkin Donuts coffee.

He sent me some of his Ethiopia coffee that he’s been brewing to convert me, and even ground it so that I could brew it in my Keurig Coffee Brewer! I’ve never in my life heard of ethiopia coffee, but it’s delicious, and I was extremely impressed! I didn’t expect a coffee to have blueberry and chocolate notes, and not require creamer. That’s how sheltered I am in my coffee game.

So I just had to see if I could cook something with it. With the fruitiness of this coffee it only made sense to cook a breakfast with it. I could not believe how great these coffee pancakes came out!

Ethiopia Coffee Pancakes With Blueberry Maple Syrup

These Ethiopia coffee pancakes are really amazing. You can actually taste a blueberry note with a hit of chocolate in the pancakes. Then I just had to smother them with a home made blueberry maple syrup!

The pancakes are so moist, with a sweet and savory flavor and with the fresh blueberry maple syrup, it makes an amazing combo that your family will love!

Prep

Brewing the Coffee.

I’m not a coffee brewing expert, but from what I understand, cold brewing will give you a less acidic coffee, which gives you a smoother flavor, which I thought would be perfect for this recipe. To make sure the flavor wasn’t missed in the pancakes I also made it a concentrated cold brew

I won’t go into the details on how to do this, but I used a 1:3 coffee to water ratio when cold brewing, and brewed overnight for about 12 hours. If you want to learn more about brewing coffee, Pairadox Coffee has some good resources on their blog for you to check out!

Cooking

If It Gets Too Thick.

I noticed because this is a 50/50 mix of coffee and milk, that the pancakes were a little thicker than normal, if that happens to you, just add a little more milk to get the consistency to your liking!

Again, I can’t thank Michael over at Pairadox Coffee enough for sending me some of this coffee, it has opened my eyes to what a coffee should taste like. Not to mention they donate a portion of their proceeds to a dog rescue!

  14. What an interesting idea! I was thinking, as I was reading, that I wouldn’t have to make coffee to go with these! Or I could always make a pot anyway for a double coffee hit. Anyway, blueberries and coffee together sounds like a very intriguing combination!

  15. Thanks for sharing at the #HomeMattersParty – we love partying with you! Hope to see you next Friday. 🙂
