It's been snowy here day after day for a week now, and we loved it. The kids do not have school, so they played outside when the sun was peeking out on the horizon, and my husband nonetheless joins them for fun playing snow sled outside. And this was before he turns our room upside down looking for his snow pants; however, he founds it and my God's sake, it didn't look like our room after. But not to worry, I made sure he fixed the place after that commotion.
While they were having fun playing outside, I had my fun playing in the kitchen, making new pancakes recipes for our Valentine's day brunch. I opted to use Dragon fruit because I thought the pink color would match the Valentine's Day color, and boy, I was wrong; not all Dragon fruit has pink color inside, so the color did not match somehow. But I manage to create a new delicious pancake recipe for Valentine's Day.
Do you want to treat your loved one with delicious breakfast in bed for the V-day? Not to worry, I have delightful mouth-watering pancakes to woo your special someone for this extraordinary day. It's effortless to make, refreshing and enjoyable to eat in every season there is!
Dragon Fruit Pancakes
2 cup ready mix pancakes
One dragon fruit smashed
Direction: Prepare the mix according to the package's instruction; add smashed dragon fruit on the compound, adjust the amount of water or milk if necessary, or add more sugar to make it sweeter.
Dragon Fruit Citrus Compote
1 Dragon fruit
2 Oranges, squeeze one for the compote and the other one for garnish
1/3 cup of sugar
3 tablespoon Honey or Maple syrup
2 teaspoons of lemon
1/2 cup of water
Direction: Remove the flesh from inside of the dragon fruit. Put in on the saucepan, add water, sugar. Cook over medium-high heat, occasionally stirring, squeezing orange juice, honey (or maple syrup), and lemon. Continue stirring; mash the fruit gently with the fork to help the cooking process faster. As the mixture reaches the boiling point, the compote will begin to thicken slightly and cook until the sauce thickens, about 20-25 minutes.
Now ready to serve, you can garnish it with sliced oranges and fresh-cut dragon fruit and pour the Dragon fruit citrus compote on top of your pancakes.
