How amazing is to meet bloggers from all around the world. I spent an amazing day with the kind Kimberly from My Little Plantation, cooking at her warm house in London. We decided for a classic food, simple but winner all the time, Pancakes with Matcha and Chocolate with a delicious Blood Orange Syrup. Enjoy.

Triple Flavored Vegan Pancakes

 

Recipe by: Kimberly Espinel.

 

{12 – 14 Pancakes}

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups / 530 ml plant-based milk (we used almond milk)
  • 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbs of melted coconut oil + more for frying
  • Zest of 1 blood orange
  • 2 cups / 250g plain white flour
  • 2tbs golden caster sugar
  • 1tbs baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbs cacao powder (optional)
  • 1 tbs matcha powder (optional)

Instructions
  1. Place the wet ingredients (milk, apple cider vinegar, zest and melted coconut oil) in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. In another large bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well.
  3. Combine the wet ingredients with the flour mixture until just combined.
  4. Divide the batter into 3 equal batches (about 1 cup each), placing each in a large enough bowl.
  5. Keep one batter mixture as is, add 2 tablespoons of cacao powder to the second batch and mix until combined. Add 1 tablespoon of matcha powder to the last batter stir until combined.
  6. Heat a small pancake pan (12cm) over a medium heat, add some coconut oil to the pan when it’s hot.
  7. Then pour the plain pancake batter into the pan, using about 60ml of batter at a time. When bubbles form on top of the pancake and the bottom side looks golden brown, carefully flip the pancake over and brown the other side. Repeat until all the batter has been used.
  8. Then prepare the matcha batter in the same way and finally do the same with the chocolate batter.

 

 

 

Blood Orange Syrup

Ingredients

  • Juice of 5 blood oranges
  • 3.5 tbs of sugar

Instructions

  1. As the pancakes are cooking, place the blood orange juice together with the sugar in a small pan.
  2. Over a low to medium heat reduce the juice until it has the consistency of a syrup – this took us about 10 minutes or so. Set aside.

 

Once the pancakes are done, serve immediately and top with the blood orange syrup. Enjoy!
