I woke up to a less than sunny Dubai today which made it jumper weather for the first time since Christmas in the UK. I’m not complaining, I quite like the flipflop/jumper look and wrapping up cosy and snug is just what the doctor orders sometimes. I’ve actually got a pretty exciting day ahead of me doing some wedding shopping (more on that to come), so I thought what better way to start it off than some delicious, gluten-free blueberry and buckwheat pancakes!
I tried these the other day and they were just a bit bland for my liking, but round 2 has been a huge success! A little addition of this and that and they are pancake perfection. I like Buckwheat’s naturally nutty taste so combined with some warm blueberries bursting through and the fluffy centre, they’re quite the weekend breakfast! Albeit the dark brown colour may not get the mouth watering, but the taste certainly does and the proof is in the pudding. Don’t be afraid to pour over the honey because it takes these gluten-free pancakes to a whole new level. The holes in the pancakes LOVE it and absorb up all the sweet, natural liquid to make for something quite delicious!
As you can see from the toppings, I like to get realllyy involved! I had an amazing delivery two days ago of an array of fresh fruits hence these pancakes look like a tropical oasis! The sunflower seeds and flaked almonds add texture and the fruits speak for themselves. If you happen to have the flour in your cupboard this morning, don’t waste any time and get flipping!
