I usually make a large pancake for breakfast & eat it with chia seed pudding, sunflower seeds, chopped up fruit, a dollop of coconut cream on the top & a big squeeze of lime juice !
You can make smaller pancakes, pikelet size is good if you are making them to share.
I make a batch of this batter up & store it in the fridge in a jar from which I can pour it directly into the pan.
The recipe is very adaptable:
You can use any sweetener; just be sure to add liquids like honey or maple syrup in with the liquid ingredients.
I use brown sugar because I like the flavour of it. I also like palm sugar but sometimes I can't be bothered grating it !
You can use any milk; dairy or non dairy.
I've made them it almond, rice, coconut milk & buttermilk. My favourite thing to do is use the buttermilk left over from making the soda bread & I add rice milk to make up the volume if I haven't got enough. The liquid you use will alter the flavour AND consistency of the batter e.g. rice milk makes thin batter, coconut milk makes very thick batter.
You can use any oil or butter & as it makes a difference to the flavour use what you like.
I use vanilla essence because I love the flavour of vanilla essence.
Did you notice the cinnamon ?
I bet Ruchita's gonna HATE that (it's one of very few things she doesn't like) but I think it's a key ingredient for flavour so it stays in hahahahaha #sorrynotsorry
