Pancakes with Caramelised Peaches, Syrup and Walnuts
by Emily Neill
What do you do when you love peaches and you love pancakes? Well you combine the two...naturally. This recipe with caramelised peaches and syrup is sweet with crunchy walnuts to add some texture. If you're feeling a bit extra why not add a scoop of your favourite vegan ice-cream?
For the pancakes
320g Self-Raising Flour
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tbsp Caster Sugar (or any sugar of your choosing)
1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
400ml Oat Milk
1 Tbsp of Neutral Oil
4 Ripe peaches
1 Tbsp plant based butter
1 Tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp sugar
Pinch of salt
Mix all your dry ingredients together in a bowl. Add your vanilla extract and then your oat milk in stages stirring as you go until the batter is smooth. If you like your pancakes a bit thicker feel free to add a bit more flour. You want a thick consistency to the batter. Fry your pancakes one by one using a splash of oil on the pan before each one. Wait for bubbles to appear in your batter on the pan, thats when you know it's time to flip. When you've done your pancakes set them to the side or place in your oven on a very low heat with them wrapped in tinfoil to keep them warm.
Next make your peaches, I like to keep the skins on as I'm an incredibly lazy cook and they peel off easily after the caramelisation process (win, win). Cut the peaches into slices removing the seed. Heat a pan on medium heat with a tbsp of butter. Pop the peaches in the pan with a tbsp of sugar, tsp of cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Cook them for 5 minutes constantly stirring until they look lovely and caramelised (this is when the skins should start peeling off easily). Remove from the heat.
Remove the pancakes from the oven (if they were in there) and pop the peaches on top. Sprinkle a handful of chopped walnuts and a teaspoon of maple syrup and your pancakes are ready to be enjoyed!
