Strawberry Buckwheat Pancakes

I tend to wake up quite early and my idea of luxury is to make a hot drink, return to bed and read the newspapers, emails and Facebook on my iPad.   The times I have spotted a recipe whilst lying in bed and have decided to cook it as soon as I got up, and this was no exception.    Another Jamie Oliver Sunday breakfast and I had all the ingredients in the kitchen.

I love pancakes and make a few different types, my favourite being Banana Buckwheat pancakes but these strawberry ones are really delicious and very filling.   They have a more ‘meaty’ texture than the fluffy egg ones and certainly fill a gap on a cold Sunday morning.

The idea of brushing them with a ‘rosemary’ branch is fantastic.   The maple syrup has a wonderful light taste of this delicious herb.   Mind you, I had to shake the frost off my rosemary branch as we had a -8° overnight in Camberley which is unusual for us.

INGREDIENTS: to make 4 good-sized pancakes

300ml almond milk
75g blanched almonds
100g buckwheat flour
100g rice flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 level teaspoons baking powder
Strawberries
Maple syrup
Sprig of rosemary
Oil of choice for cooking

METHOD:

Put milk, almonds, flours, baking powder, extract and banana into a blender and blitz until smooth.  This makes quite a thick batter.

Heat a small amount of oil in a non-stick pan and pour in some batter to make an approximate 7” round pancake.  Spread out with the back of a spoon.

Immediately top with strawberry slices.2017-01-22_10-57-45_048

Cook for a couple of minutes until the base has browned and then flip over and carry on cooking for another minute or two until the second side is cooked.

Turn back over and brush the strawberry side with maple syrup using a ‘rosemary’ brush.

Serve with natural yoghurt and extra strawberry slices.
