SPELT PANCAKES with ELDERFLOWER

Last year I made elderflower syrup. Last month I tried pancakes with elderflower at Cafe Museum in Cieszyn. And I decided to make my own version of these delicious things :)




SPELT PANCAKES with ELDERFLOWER / Makes 8


INGREDIENTS:
  • 8 twigs of elderflower
  • 1/2 l almond milk
  • 1 organic egg
  • 1 pack of brown sugar with real vanilla
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 8 TBS spelt flour (or any other)
  • coconut oil or olive oil for frying
  • 1 TBS powdered xylitol




METHOD:

Beat lightly egg with milk in a medium bowl. Then add flour, vanilla sugar and sea salt and mix all ingredients very well. Heat the oil on the frying pan. When hot, dip one bunch of elderflower in batter at a time and place on the pan. You can pour a little more batter to cover all surface of the frying pan. 

Cut off green stalks using scissors and fry pancakes on both sides until golden brown. Place on plate, leave for a minute, sprinkle with powdered xylitol and serve warm. 

You can also serve them with fresh strawberries or fresh strawberry sauce!
