Shrove Tuesday - Which Will Be Your Favourite?

03.02.2016

Shrove Tuesday has arrived, so why not give one of our pancake recipes a whirl?

Chickpea pancakes are so versatile as you can incorporate them into a sweet or savoury dish plus they are a healthier option for you than traditional pancakes made with wheat flour. Eaten in moderation and as part of a balanced and varied diet you can indulge in these from time to time.

 

Chickpea Pancakes

Chickpea or gram flour pancakes are a much healthier version of the traditional pancake.  

enough for 1 pancake - simply multiply the numbers for however many you want and however many you're feeding.

Ingredients

  • 1 TBS chickpea (gram) flour
  • 4-5 TBS water

Topping options

  • Greek yoghurt with walnuts
  • Greek yoghurt with blueberries or raspberries or strawberries (leave the berries whole or whizz them in the blender to make a berry sauce
  • Greek yoghurt with nuts and seeds
  • Extras: Add a little vanilla essence to your yoghurt for extra sweetness, grate a little dark chocolate over the top to finish off

Method

  1. Dribble a little oil into your non-stick frying pan, place over a moderate heat, wipe out the excess oil with kitchen paper.
  2. Measure the chick pea flour into a small bowl, add water and whisk until dissolved (consistency is like double cream).
  3. Pour mixture into the heated frying pan and tilt pan to spread mixture evenly around.
  4. Cook for about 2 minutes on each side which will make the pancake easy to fold.
  5. Add your toppings and serve immediately.

  2. Heat your frying pan over a low heat. Add a small amount of olive oil and wipe out the excess with kitchen paper. Next, pour your banana batter to form a circle. Flip after the edges begin to cook.
