3 cups buttermilk
3 large eggs
3 cups flour
4 oz. butter, melted
1 oz. basil, chopped
1 oz. mint, chopped
1. In large bowl, mix all ingredients to prepare griddle cake mixture. Do not over-mix; leave lumpy.
2. Pour batter on oiled griddle. With spoon or small scoop, create clover leaf design on griddle, or use a clover leaf stencil. Wait till bubbles form, about 3-4 minutes, and flip.
4. Garnish or decorate with vanilla mascarpone and chocolate sauce. Finish with fresh mint leaves.
