- 300ml hazelnut milk (or any other vegan milk)
- 50g applesauce
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- 1tbs extra virgin olive oil
- 200g buckwheat flour
- 2tsp baking powder
- coconut oil for frying the pancakes
- For the Baked Cinnamon Apple and Sultanas
- 50g dried sultanas
- 200ml filtered water
- 50g unrefined raw cane sugar
- 2tsp cinnamon powder
- 2 lemons, freshly squeezed
- 1 large bramley apple
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the milk, applesauce, vanilla extract and salt. Whisk together.
- Sieve in the flour and baking powder. Mix the ingredients together, with a whisk.
- Finally add the oil and leave the batter to rest for at least an hour.
- Preheat the oven to gas mark 180g Celsius.
- Place the sultanas in lukewarm water and set to one side.
- Peel the apple, and cut into thin strips. Combine into the lemon juice. Leave for about 10 minutes.
- Top tip – I use a plastic seal-proof container to mix the apple and juice together. Seal and shake the container to ensure the apple and lemon juice are well mixed.
- Dissolve the sugar into the water. Once dissolved, add the cinnamon powder. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes.
- Top tip – I use an ovenproof dish over a stove to heat the sugar and water. The ovenproof dish is going to be used later in the recipe.
- Drain the lemon juice from the apples and set the juice to one side, for later.
- Remove the sultanas from the water and place into an ovenproof dish with the apples.
- Bake the cinnamon apples and sultanas in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the apples soften.
- Top tip – I usually do not undertake the baking until I am about to serve the pancakes.
- Gently heat a griddle pan. When the pan is hot, add the oil. Let the oil sizzle and then add a couple of spoonfuls of batter. Roll the batter around, until it covers the surface.
