Tuesday 9th Feb is Pancake Day, the exact origins of which are (as with most things) up for debate between a Christian holiday or Pagan festival. Either works for me to be fair and the Peachicks are not really that interested in why they get pancakes as long as they do! I have played around with a plain egg-free, dairy-free pancake recipe for a while now and you can find an oat milk version with warm peaches here.
Plain Pancake Batter… (dairy free, egg free, soya free, nut free, seed free, gluten free)
And here is another version of the recipe which you can make gluten free and use in the same way as a ‘normal’ pancake batter! I use Doves Farm Gluten Free Flour as I find it is the most reliable for the price – I don’t use enough gluten free flours to know how this recipe would work with another brand!
How to make…
|100g Self-Raising Flour (wheat or gluten-free)||
|1tbsp Golden Syrup|
|2tbsp Vegetable Oil|
|100ml Koko dairy Free|
|Pinch of salt|
Apple & Raisin Pancake Batter:- (dairy free, soya free, egg free, nut free)
If you are planning on saving your pancake making for the weekend then these apple & raisin pancakes with a cinnamon caramel syrup are something a bit special. They would be perfect served warm as breakfast in bed for Valentines day and will definitely score a few brownie points with your someone special! You can even use a cookie cutter to cut the cooked pancakes into heart shapes before stacking and drizzling the caramel syrup over. (I went for the fold them over & drizzle approach this morning!) They can also be made gluten free by substituting the wheat flour for doves farm self raising flour and reducing the Koko used to 300ml. You may also need to make a lot more syrup than the recipe below makes if you want to drown your pancakes – I like a drizzle but for a puddle make a bigger batch – the recipe is very forgiving and doubles/triples really well.

And here is how I enjoyed my pancakes this morning… with a nice cup of fancy coffee made by Daddy P (I’m fairly sure he was a barista in a former life!) Yikes how dirty are those tiles… off to scrub the kitchen immediately!!
I have linked these pancakes up to Charlotte at Charlotte’s Lively Kitchen for the #FoodYearLinkup (as its Pancake Day), & Karen at Lavender & Lovage for this months Tea Time Treats (theme this month is pancakes,waffles & hotcakes!)! Definitely recommend you hop over to them all as there are some amazing recipes that I can’t wait to try! The Nutella Day recipes look especially good!!
