Wheatgerm Pancake With Passion Fruit Ice Cream

I have a bottle of wheatgerm which has a few months before expiry, so I decided to whip up a pancake batter with a few tablespoons of wheatgerm .  I made this for our tea snack .  It was a  lovely wheatgerm enriched pancake with homemade passion fruit ice cream.  Passion fruits are in season now.  So it is time to make ice cream with it.  I love my pancake with a big scoop of homemade ice cream.  A treat for Wild boar and myself . It is truly  ice cream bonanza for us this October month !  Don't we love ice cream under such hot weather. And the weather is very hot the last one month and the ice cream melts faster than I can savor them , so I am only allowed a  quick camwhoring of this sweet indulgence ! Wild Boar hates it if his ice cream is melting away before he can take a bite of it, so I have to be quick with the camera. 

Of all the homemade ice cream, I love passion fruit the most ! Tangy and refreshing !  This is my second time making passion fruit ice cream without an ice cream maker :p  For the passion fruit ice cream recipe , click here  .  I am not good at making pancake but after many trials and errors, I managed to make the texture soft  under low heat.  This wheatgerm enriched pancake is aromatic and healthy. A favorite tea snack for kids , young adults and older folk like me :p  This is sometimes served as dessert in some restaurant.
