Disorderly TeaHouse Pancakes
Optional toppings: more butter, maple syrup, fresh fruit, whipped cream, etc.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Make a well in the center and pour in the Disorderly TeaHouse and/or milk, egg, and melted butter. Mix that shtuff up until reallll smooth.
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 piping hot with a huge pat of butter, a river of maple syrup, and anything else that floats your boat.
In a medium bowl whisk together Mixed-Up Berries Disorderly TeaHouse with dry ingredients. Once the dry ingredients and Disorderly TeaHouse are incorporated, add the eggs and whisk thoroughly. Set the batter aside to chill out in the fridge while you prepare your filling.
In a bowl or a stand mixer, combine the cream, sugar, and vanilla. Whip the cream to a stiff peak. Store in the fridge while you prepare the crepes.
Set a medium-sized nonstick pan on the stove over medium-high heat. Grease the pan with butter or oil, and ladle in the crepe batter. Making crepes takes a little speed, but mostly finesse, to move the pan and evenly disperse the batter before it sets. Crepes cook very fast, especially since a hot pan is a must for this recipe. If you have never made a crepe before, do yourself a favor and watch a YouTube video or two to get the technique down before you go winging it.
Set the finished crepes aside to cool. Once they have cooled (patience is key here), stuff the crepes with your homemade whip cream and berries, then with your favorite syrup and powdered sugar. Crack open a chilled down Disorderly TeaHouse and have yourself a brunch.
