VEGAN ALMOND BUTTER & BAKED CHERRIES


8-9 Pancakes

INGREDIENTS

Roasted Cherries:

  • 400g frozen or fresh cherries, pitted and sliced in half (we used frozen, but you can use either or a mixture of both)

  • 4 tbsp light brown sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste

Almond Butter Pancakes:

  • 210g plain flour

  • 3 tbsp light brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 300ml almond milk

  • 80g almond butter

  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste

  • ¾ tsp coconut oil for cooking

To serve:

  • 4 tbsp vegan vanilla yogurt

  • 2 tbsp agave syrup

  • 16 fresh cherries

Allergens are marked in bold


Step 1

Preheat the oven to CircoTherm 180C. Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Place the cherries baking tray. Sprinkle on the sugar and drizzle over the vanilla bean paste. Toss together. Place in the oven with low added steam for 12-14 minutes, until softened and starting to release their juice. Remove from the oven.


Step 2

Meanwhile make the pancake mix. Place the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and mix together. Add in the almond milk, almond butter, lemon juice and vanilla extract. Stir with a whisk until combined.


Step 3

Place a hotplate on the induction hob and heat to a medium-high heat. Add ¼ tsp of the coconut oil and brush all over the hotplate when melted.


Step 4

Spoon blobs of pancake batter onto the hotplate (approx. 1/3 cup of mix per pancake). Cook for 1-2 minutes – until the pancakes are starting to bubble at the edges. Turn the pancakes over and cook on the other side for another 1-2 minutes. Repeat with the rest of the mixture - oiling the pan each time - until all the pancakes are cooked (you can keep the pancakes warm in a very low or warming drawer oven whilst you’re making each batch). You should get 8-9 pancakes.


Step 5

Stack the pancakes up on plates. Drizzle on the vanilla yogurt and spoon over the roasted cherries and any cherry liquid. Drizzle over the agave syrup and serve with fresh cherries for decoration.



MINI DUTCH PANCAKES WITH CARAMELISED FIGS


Serves 2

Cooks: CircoTherm 200C 14-16 Minutes.

Prep:30 Minutes.

INGREDIENTS

Pancakes:

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter

  • 150g plain flour

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 3 large eggs

  • 240ml cold milk

  • 2 tbsp caster sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Caramelised figs:

  • 4 ripe figs

  • 2 tbsp light brown sugar

  • 4 tbsp fig conserve

  • 2 tbsp water

To serve:

  • Vanilla ice cream

  • 2 tbsp flaked toasted almonds

  • 1 tsp icing sugar

Allergens are marked in bold


Step 1

Preheat the oven to CircoTherm 200C. Take two x 20cm cast iron skillets and place one tablespoon of the butter in each. Place in the oven to melt and heat through until it starts to smell nutty (approx. 4-5 minutes).


Step 2

Meanwhile, take a large bowl and add the flour and salt. Mix and create a well in the middle. Add the eggs and half the milk and use a whisk to stir, starting from the middle and working outwards. Add the remaining milk towards the end of mixing and continue to stir with the whisk until fully combined.


Step 3

Stir in the caster sugar and vanilla extract. Open the oven and working quickly (so the pan doesn’t cool too much) use a brush to brush the melted butter all over the inside (including the sides) of the pans. Quickly and carefully pour the pancake mixture into each pan. Close the oven and cook for 13-16 minutes until puffed up and golden brown.


Step 4

Meanwhile, heat a small frying pan over a medium heat. Slice the figs in half and sprinkle on the sugar. Place the figs in the pan cut side down, and cook (on one side only) until lightly caramelised (about 2-3 minutes). Remove from the pan.


Step 5

Add the fig conserve and water to the pan and heat through until loosened. Turn off the heat. Take the pancakes out of the oven and place the figs into the pancakes along with some vanilla ice cream. Drizzle with the fig sauce. Sprinkle on the flaked almonds and icing sugar and serve.



PANCAKES WITH CINNAMON BUTTER

Cinnamon butter:

  • 4 tsp butter

Fill cinnamon butter in a piping bag and create snail-style circles on the pancake while it’s baking. If necessary, cover the pan with a plate.
