Don’t forget Pancake Tuesday tomorrow! I’m looking forward to trying out a new product that I’ve been sent: two organic pancake mixes from Sowan’s Organics, one with unbleached white flour and a spelt variation, which I’m particularly interested in. Both come fortified with organic vanilla, a great addition to savoury dishes – when I’m making Nic‘s Buttermilk Pancakes, I flavour them with some vanilla extract before adding the crispy bacon and maple syrup.
If you have to buy a mix, best stick with something organic but, if you’re interested in making your own pancakes, you’ll find my standard recipe here with a useful dish for Pancake Tuesday – Ricotta and Spinach Pancake Bake. For more ideas check out Greatfood.ie‘s pancake special.

Sowan’s Organic Spelt Pancakes were a winner, filling and flavoursome, if a little too sweet for my taste for using with ricotta and spinach, although I still think that they would work well with crispy bacon and maple syrup.
Welcome back Caroline. Enjoy the pancakes tonight, I know I will!!
Thank you! Am planning a stack variation on the Ricotta and Spinach Pancake Bake so will let you know how that goes…
