The amazing coconut, banana and cranberry oat bars… it had to be done.
That said, there was no way I was forgetting about one of the best baked pancakes I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating. My first ever baked pancake was inspired by Angela’s baked apple pancake and after making myself a chocolate and mango version on round two, I could think of nothing more appealing or appropriate then giving the apple tatin like pancake a go!
My apples were a little less caramalised than Angela’s when I flipped the pancake over. The combination of the buckwheat and apple was however quite wonderful. The fruity flour works so well with the slightly tart applesauce and sweet softened baked apples.
The raisins and pecans in the pancake and strewn on top were a delicious little treat providing an extra hit of sweetness and nutty caramel flavour to the giant breakfast bake extravaganza.
I was a little bit hesitant about making this version of the baked pancake for fear that the apples would stick to the baking parchment and the whole thing would fall apart. No such thing happened and I flipped it out on to the plate without a spot of bother.
I’ve gone a bit baked pancake mad….not only that seem to have gone a bit circle shaped food mad too!
Here’s a sneak peak of what’s coming this evening!
Astounding! It may look like a frittata…it may just be a frittata and it most certainly is 100% vegan!
Random question for a Monday morning…What’s your favourite circle shaped food?
