04 Feb Spelt Apple Pancake Recipe
Do you enjoy a warm fluffy pancake? Do you like an easy and delicious breakfast?
This recipe is for you. Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, plant-based or omnivore – give this pancake batter a whirl!
This recipe makes approx 15 full size ‘American style’ fluffy pancakes (using a tablespoon of batter each). If only one or two of us are eating breakfast this means I have leftover batter. Which is great, because it means I can make some to eat for snacks over the next few days. I tend to make them smaller, using a teaspoon of batter per pancake just because they’re cute and bitesize! They’re tasty cold, but if you prefer warm pancakes then you can always pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds to warm them through.
If apple and cinnamon isn’t your bag, why not give this carrot cake pancake recipe a try instead?
Spelt Apple Pancakes
A delicious plant-based fruity breakfast
- 135g light spelt flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons sugar (whatever sugar you have to hand)
- 1 tablespoon ground flax/linseed (they’re the same thing)
- 130ml plant-based milk
- 1 tablespoon plant-based butter, gently melted in a frying pan
- 1 apple
- Melt the butter in a pan over a very low heat.
- In a small bowl mix 1 tablespoon of ground flax/linseed with 2 tablespoons of cold water. Leave it to ‘set’ for 5 minutes. This is your egg replacement (and also a good source of omega-3).
- In a large bowl mix spelt flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar together. You can sieve/sift them if you have more patience than me, I just whack them in and give a good stir.
- Add the flax/linseed ‘egg‘ and half the milk and stir with a fork until combined. Add the remaining milk and stir again.
- Grate the whole apple into the batter, skin and core – just remove any pips and give it a good stir. The batter should be quite thick.
- Pour the melted butter into the batter and stir it in, making sure it has coated the pan before you do.
- Drop tablespoons of batter into the pan, the heat needs to be really low. How many you can cook at once will depend on the size of your pan. When bubbles appear on the top of the pancakes, it’s time to flip. Cook for a further minute and hey presto – spelt apple pancakes!
Serve with yogurt or syrup of your choice.
