It’s this time of year where even a snow enthusiast like me is craving for the first springy precursors. However, sub-zero temperatures seem to have settled in Amsterdam, so a cozy weekend was calling once more.
As pancakes are a loyal companion on my photos and so many of you have asked me as to how I prepare them, find my recipe below this time. Otherwise feel free to indulge in those comfy pillows, strong cups of coffee and cabin-like wood details as I’m used to these days.
Rural pancake recipe for the perfect cottage day at home:
- 1 egg
- 0,1 litre of almond milk
- 1 tsp. chia seeds
- 1 tsp. hemp powder (can easily be left out)
- 3 tablespoons of coconut blossom sugar
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- as much flour as needed to get a viscous batter (I like my pancakes to be thick but fluffy so the mix shouldn’t spread too much in the pan)
- any add-on or -ins you can think of (e.g. frozen berries, fresh fruits, nuts, cocoa nibs, granola …)
Blend the ingredients in the order stated above. I sometimes let the chia seeds soak a little before adding the flour. Use half a teaspoon of coconut oil for the pan, let it heat up at a low setting and then add the dough. The low flame has your pancakes raise perfectly even though it might test your patience or appetite. It’s worth it!
And once you have dispatched the whole stack, all there is left to say is:
Have yourselves a cozy Sunday!
