on 16/08/2014

This morning, I made these tasty to make spelt vegan pancakes & served them with a hot home-made fresh figs caramel! This is a lovely healthy breakfast too! I had the pleasure of having fresh figs from my own tree today & wanted to make something special with them! Check it all out! 🙂 MMM,…

Yumm!

Yumm!

Recipe: For 13 smaller pancakes

Ingredients:

* For the spelt pancakes:

75 gr white spelt flour

75 gr wholemeal spelt flour

20 gr baking powder

1/4 teaspoon sea salt, ground finely in pestle & mortar

2 teaspoons coconut sugar

400 ml unsweetened soy milk

* For the cardamom scented sticky caramel figs:

6 fresh ripe figs cleaned, stalk removed, each fig cut up into 4 to 6 wedges/ I used fresh figs from my own tree!

1/4 teaspoon ground green cardamom

1 tablespoon of water

2 tablespoons coconut sugar

1 teaspoon sherry vanilla extract

To fry: canola oil

Method:

1. Sieve your white spelt flour & your wholemeal flour above a larger bowl. This is to bring some air to your flours. Now, add baking powder, sea salt & coconut sugar. Mix well with a spoon. Finally, add soy milk & by using a whisk, whisk it gradually all together, do not overmix! See that you don’t have any lumps left. Let the  batter sit on your kitchen counter for about 10-15 minutes.The batter will thicken!

2. Preheat a non-stick smaller pan on medium-heat. Pour a swirl of canola oil in it & swirl it around the hot pan. Now, with a smaller soup paddle, pour the batter into a smaller circle into the hot pan. Let it fry for a few minutes or until the surface has many smaller air bubbles & you see with a fork that the base of the pancake is golden brown in color & carefully flip your pancake over. Let it fry for about 1-2 minutes or until it is golden brown & the batter has been cooked. Place your pancake on a smaller plate & keep them warm with a larger upside-down plate. Do the same with the remaining batter. Every time, I poured a swirl of canola oil to the hot pan, added a smaller paddle of batter & then the same thing. When your pancakes are ready, keep them warm. I place cling film over the top of pancakes & over the base of the plate.

3. Take medium cooking pot & add sliced fresh figs. Add 1 tablespoon of water, 2 tablespoons of coconut sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of ground green cardamom  & sherry vanilla extract. Stir well. Let it simmer on medium heat for about 10-15 minutes or until your figs are broken down a bit & you will end up with a sort of sticky caramel. Plate up instantly & enjoy a lovely pancake & top it with your fresh sticky caramelized figs!!! They are a huge success!!!!! My husband found that these are the best pancakes ever! 😉 MMM,…

  1. Wow, that looks amazing! I currently have 2 small fig trees and one is fruiting. So exciting! In the past I somehow always managed to kill my figs. Hopefully not this time, so I can actually enjoy figs from my own garden, and make these wonderful pancakes with caramelized figs! 🙂

  2. I love figs and love the combination, spelt pancakes and those luscious figs, good for breakfast but also I would eat as a dessert.
