Welcome to the final edition of Meatless Monday A-Z.
Today's ingredient is Zest.
Although I have been eyeing off our neighbours overflowing lemon tree for the past couple of weeks, I decided not to pinch any without seeing them & asking them first!!!
So today, although I had high hopes of bringing you a lemon zest recipe, you instead have an orange zest recipe. But don't worry, I'm sure it won't disappoint!
1 cup wholemeal flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon ground flax mixed with 3 Tablespoons boiling water
1/2 cup motherless milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup orange juice (freshly squeezed)
1 Tablespoon orange zest
1 Tablespoon dairy-free chocolate chips
Make a "flax egg" by combing the ground flax with the boiling water & whisking together with a fork. Set aside to thicken.
In a measuring jug combine the milk and apple cider vinegar and whisk til milk starts to separate and thicken slightly.In a mixing bowl combine the flour & baking powder.
Add the zest & choc chips. Stir through til evenly distributed.
Make a well in the centre and combine all the wet ingredients. Mix well.
Pour spoonfuls of mixture onto a preheated frying pan & turn when bubbling. Give the final side a minute or so before removing and serving. Repeat until all the batter is used.
This will make about 12 small or 6 large pancakes and "should" serve 2.
Though they are reallllllllllllly good, so perhaps you're not willing to share ;-)
Question of the day?
What's your favourite chocolate combination flavour?
I'm sure it will come as no surprise to you that mine is choc-orange, though I do also really like choc-mint!
