Walnut and cinnamon buttermilk spelt pancakes

    20 min

    Spelt flour is so healthy, so I try it in everything I can. I adapted my basic spelt pancake recipe on this site to come up with this yummy combination of nuts, cinnamon and wholegrains.

    Serves: 4 

    • 100g spelt flour
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 3/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 5 tablespoons chopped walnuts
    • 185ml buttermilk
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tablespoon melted butter
    • olive oil or butter, for frying

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. In a large bowl, combine the spelt flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, bicarb, cinnamon and walnuts.
    2. Combine the buttermilk, egg and melted butter. Stir well, then add to the dry ingredients. Stir gently till just combined; the batter will be lumpy.
    3. Heat a heavy frying pan over medium high heat. Brush with a little olive oil or butter. When the pan is hot (water should sizzle when flicked onto the pan), add ladlefuls of the pancake batter, using about 60ml for each pancake. Cook till the bottom is set and browned and bubbles appear on the top, then flip and cook another 1 to 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

    Trying to get more whole grains into my diet, so I bought myself a bag of spelt flour and came across this recipe this morning. It made a fantastic breakfast - nicer than other pancakes I've made with just regular white flour. Loved the cinnamon flavour and, although I didn't have walnuts, I used almonds which worked well. I served mine with some chopped strawberries and blueberries making it a really healthy breakfast that feels like a complete treat. I will definitely be making it again!  -  20 Jan 2013
