BOTW! Blackberry & Elderflower Pancakes.

It's bake of the week time again and boy, do we have a good 'un! Have any of you been out blackberry picking yet? If you're able then it's a must do, fresh blackberries baked into every recipe humanly possible, what more could you want! Although, we got ours from Sainsbury's but don't tell, poorly people are allowed. Lets just say, they did not last long. You may or may have not noticed that we love a good pancake recipe around these parts, so you won't be surprised by the amount of delicious pancake recipes we're shoving down your necks (and ours). This home made recipe was especially a winner. In fact, Laura said these were probably top of our pancake chart! The pancakes are loaded with juicy blackberries and sticky sweet elderflower cordial, we even made a delicious matching sauce.

GF/Vegan Blackberry & Elderflower Pancakes serves 1

1/3 cup almond milk (or which ever milk you prefer)

  • Add all the batter ingredients to a bowl and whisk until combined.
  • Cut the blackberries in half and gently mix through the batter.
  • Leave to rest for 30mins to 1hour.
  • Heat a non-stick frying pan over a low-medium heat.
  • Add a 1/2 - 1 teaspoon of oil to the pan (we used coconut, makes them perfectly crispy).
  • Pour 1/2 a ladel full of  the batter to the frying pan.
  • Cook until the underneath of the pancake is golden, then flip and cook the other side.
  • Repeat this with as many pancakes as you can squeeze from that batter.
  • Whilst the pancakes are cooking add the 2 tbsp elderflower cordial to a cup and stir through icing sugar until you've reached the consistency you like.
  • Serve the pancakes and pour over the sauce.
  • Gorge.
