Alkaline Diet Recipe #23: Pancakes with Lemon Cream
Pancakes with Lemon Cream
These pancakes are much tastier than the conventional, not so good for you, kind. Consider adding different spices for different flavors. For instance during the holiday season I will add a mixture of cinnamon, all spice and nutmeg to the batter and make a vanilla cream to go with it by substituting the lemon for some vanilla essence, vanilla powder (which is ground up vanilla beans and liquid stevia).
2 cups sprouted spelt flour (Shilo Farms is amazing)
1 tablespoon Bicarbonate of soda (Bob’s Red Mill)
¼ teaspoon pHlavor or Celtic salt
2 cups almond or hemp seed milk or other milk substitute. Different milks will create different thickness of batter)
4 tablespoons olive oil or melted coconut oil
Grated rind of one fresh lemon
10 drops liquid stevia (I use either lemon or English toffee)
Additional oil for cooking
How to Make
Mix all ingredients in a mixing bowl starting with the dry ingredients first. Add the milk stirring well followed by by the olive or coconut oil and mix well. You can always use an electric whisk if it is easier. You will want enough milk to make a thick batter so keep checking the consistency. Leave to stand for 5 – 10 minutes (don’t worry, sometimes the children can’t wait that long!.
I have found that with this flour it can swell a little even after it rests so don’t be surprised if you have to add a little more.
Heat up just a little olive oil (you can use grapeseed oil if you prefer) in a frying pan at a low to moderate heat and add one ladle full of the batter to the heated pan and leave to set. Turn when it lifts easily and is browning slightly. Keep in a warm oven until all your pancakes are cooked. Serve with my lemon Butter (below), or freshly squeezed lemon juice mixed with a tablespoon of vanilla essence or liquid stevia and drizzled on top. In our home we prefer plain lemon juice sprinkled on top.
1 can coconut milk
Grated zest of lemon
Juice of 1 lemon
8 drops of lemon or vanilla stevia
pinch of Celtic salt of spray of pHlavor
How to Make
Mix together in a blender and pour into a bowl. Leave for 30 minutes to set in the fridge. When ready, put on the table so everyone can put a lovely dollop on top of each pancake. In our home we have these with our Goddess of Greens so we can ensure we are eating a well combined meal of raw alkalizing fruit and vegetables, with the wholesome filling grains of the pancakes.
It is an Outstanding Day!
