To truly appreciate these coconut flour pancakes as a treat, you need to have followed a baking free Paleo plan for at least 2 weeks. They are perfect for topping with berries or bacon but will never be the same as drop scones from yesteryear when you frolicked freely with wheat flour and sugar!
You will need:
1 x apple
1 x banana
4 x organic eggs
1 heaped tsp raw honey
1/2 tsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp coconut oil
30g coconut flour – I used Tiana
pinch of salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla bean paste
Mash the banana in a bowl. Grate in the apple and add eggs, honey, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, salt, baking soda.
Slowly whisk the dry mix into the banana/apple mixture. Heat butter in a heavy pan over a medium heat. Spoon the batter into the pan to make 5 small pancakes at a time and cook thoroughly on each side. Serve with nut butter and berries or bacon and avocado (just omit the vanilla)
Judging last year with Tina Roche, Vhari Russell, Miss Sue Flay was such a privilege, the atmosphere was electric and the food served to excited guests was truly amazing, I can’t wait to take part again this year. If you live near Cambridge, keep an eye out for updates ready to buy tickets.
Yep, it is, but I hope this blog will serve you well with inspiration and recipes as well as act as a fabulous filing system for all my ideas involving the kitchen. You see, I already write and think about food constantly for my job as an Editor of Making Cakes and Bakes magazine…I literally wake up in the middle of the night and want to develop the bake I just invented in my sleep, and I would, if I weren’t so exhausted from trying to work around my four reasons for living age 11,7,5 and 2 plus 2 dogs, 1 cat, 1 work addicted husband and a house renovation that seems to be in a constant ‘messy phase’. With the chaos that is our family life I drag tonnes of guilt around with me because I simply don’t feel like I am giving anyone enough attention, and that’s where food comes in…I give my family a cooking cuddle to let them know how much I love and live for them, even if I am a stroppy moo! You can steam with frustration in the kitchen and still make a meal full of love…and that is what the cooking cuddle is all about. x
