Besides actively searching for culinary adventures across Hong Kong, I love to be the chef of my own culinary creations. Reminiscing to my home country, the Netherlands, I often like to add a Dutch touch to my recipes. One of the most famous Dutch delicates are ‘Pannenkoeken’, which is Dutch for pancakes. As a real cheese addict - and as it cannot get more Dutchy - I like to add some Dutch grated cheese (a.k.a. cheese flakes) to this recipe, which is ideal for all cheese lovers amongst us. It’s yummy & easy to make, and the use of healthier alternatives for butter, milk and wheat flour makes it a bit more of a guilt-free snack. So.. let’s get started!
Serving size: 4 pancakes
Complexity: ✯out of ✯✯✯✯
Duration: 30 minutes
- 125 gram spelt flour
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- 300 ml almond milk
- 2 hands of Dutch grated cheese (or any other cheese)
- 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
- Mix the spelt flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add the almond milk and egg into it.
- Mix it all together until you get a smooth mixture.
- Heat up a non-stick pan over medium-high heat and grease it with a teaspoon of coconut oil.
- Add a scoop of mixture onto the pan and spread it out on the pan.
- Sprinkle some grated cheese on this wet mixture.
- Bake until the surface is just about to become dry and then turn it around to bake the other side until it is golden brown.
- Repeat steps 4-6, to make 3 additional pancakes with the remaining mixture in the bowl.
Voilà, it’s ready to eat! Enjoy!
