Daily Recipe: Date Pancakes

Today, I would like to introduce a wonderful recipe called Date Pancakes. It is a good choice for your breakfast.


  • 12 dates, pitted and chopped.


  • 1 cup hot water, plus 1/2 cup lukewarm water.


  • 1 teaspoon active dry yeast.


  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten.


  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour.


  • 1 teaspoon baking powder.


  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger.


  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.


  • Pinch of saffron threads.


  • 1 cup finely chopped scallions, plus more for garnish.


  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.


  • 3 tablespoons safflower oil.



Plain whole-milk Greek yogurt, for serving.


Make the stewed dried fruit: Place apricots, pears, prunes, figs, raisins, lemon zest, and cinnamon in a medium saucepan with 2 cups water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook until liquid is reduced by about half, about 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Make the pancakes: Place dates in a glass measuring cup and add hot water; let stand for 15 minutes. Using an immersion blender or a food processor, puree until some small pieces remain.

In a bowl, sprinkle yeast over lukewarm water; let stand 5 minutes. Add date puree along with eggs.

Whisk together flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, saffron, scallions, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl. Add date mixture, mixing until well combined. Let rest 20 minutes.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high. Using a 2-tablespoon ice cream scoop, drop batter into skillet. Use an offset spatula to spread batter out into 2 1/2-inch rounds, and cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 2 minutes per side. Repeat process with remaining 2 tablespoons oil and batter. Serve pancakes with yogurt, stewed fruit, and a sprinkling of scallions.
