Aniseed Spelt Pancakes w Chunky Strawberry Mash
The star aniseed in these pancakes gives a lovely extra but subtle flavour, and of course the strawberries add a delicious freshness. Makes 5 medium pancakes.

Total time: 
You need
  • ½ cup wholemeal spelt flour
  • ½ cup white spelt flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp star aniseed powder
  • 1 tbsp coconut palm sugar
  • 2 tbsp rice bran oil
  • ¼ tsp Himalayan rock salt
  • 1 cup of oat milk (or another non dairy milk that
  • 1 tbsp of hemp or chia seeds per pancake
  • 2.5 cups of strawberries
  • 2.5 tsp vanilla paste (or essence, vanilla bean based)
  • oil to cook with (coconut oil is nice here)
To do
  1. with a stick blender (or in the small bowl of your food processor), super quickly blend the strawberries with the vanilla paste, so you keep some lumps and don't end up with a strawberry soup
  2. mix the flours, baking powder, star aniseed powder, sugar and salt, whisk through well so there are no lumps
  3. add the non dairy milk and the oil, whisk till nice and smooth
  4. heat ½ tbsp of oil in a medium skillet to medium/high (not super hot), and add a ladle of batter and swirl the pan to evenly distribute the batter
  5. bubbles will appear, and when the sides let loose (with a bit of help of your spatula), flip them over (help by holding the edge of the pancake) and give it just a few more minutes to brown
  6. when nice and brown, serve pancake with strawberry mash and a table spoon of hemp seeds
Apart for the pancakes themselves, I haven't added any sugar or otherwise sweet things to this recipe, but if you're in a sweet mood, of course you can add any preferred sweetener, or chopped dates 🙂
