Yesterday at lunch, I invented these lovely spelt pancakes served with hot maple syrup strawberries for Peter & I. It was more like a brunch. We slept in & wanted something special for breakfast. So, I made these beauties! I had some strawberries lying around that I had to use up & invented this lovely strawberries in hot maple syrup to serve with these tasty pancakes! ;) Yum, Yum, I say!
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients!
Recipe: For 10 medium-sized thicker pancakes
* For the spelt pancakes:
2 organic eggs
360 ml unsweetened soy milk
140 gr organic white spelt flour
100 gr wholemeal spelt flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
50 gr coconut sugar or less,…because the topping itself is sweet.
baking margarine or butter to fry your pancakes in
* For the strawberries in hot maple syrup:
200 gr fresh strawberries, hulled & each cut up into 2 or 4
80 ml ( 1/3 cup) maple syrup
Step 2: Method!
1. In a large bowl, add eggs. Beat them loose with a fork. Add soy milk & whisk together.
2. In another large bowl, add 2 spelt flours, baking powder & coconut sugar. Mix well with a spoon. Add this mix to the bowl with beaten eggs & milk. Mix well with a wooden spoon or with a whisk. The batter will be a bit thicker & darker in color. Place a medium-sized non-stick pan on medium-high heat. Add a knob of margarine & let it completely melt. Swirl it around the base of the pan. Let the pan heat up. Pour 1 small soup ladle of the batter into the center of the pan & let the batter swirl around. Let the batter bubble well for about 2-3 minutes until you carefully flip the pancake over, to fry this side of the pancake. I test with a fork, to loosen the sides of the pancake & so you can see if the other side is brown & fried enough. Everytime, you flip your pancake over, lower your heat. This side only needs 1-2 minutes of frying. I put a heat resisted plate on low heat & turned the heat off.
I put my fried pancakes on top of each other & place an upside down plate over them to keep warm. Do the same with the rest of the pancake batter & serve them warm. When your 4 last pancakes are frying, place your cut up strawberries in a fitted cooking pot & pour your maple syrup over it. Turn heat on medium-high heat until your strawberries are soaked up with maple syrup & are denser. Stir often!The maple syrup will be a bit more syrupy but not too much. If you want it to bind more, cook it longer on the heat. When done, wait for a few minutes not to burn yourself on the hot maple syrup. Serve a pancake & pour that lovely strawberry maple syrup over your pancake. See that you have a few strawberry pieces onto your lovely pancake. Peter & I each, devoured 3 pancakes! :) The others, we ate the next morning & reheated the pancakes in the microwave. Enjoy, my sweeties! :) xxx
