|Chocolate Cherry Pancakes and locally made maple syrup.|
Though I had no cardamom on hand (but plenty of cherries!), this divinely sweet recipe was inspired by My Little Celebration's Chocolate Cardamom Pancakes.
1 1/2 cup vanilla soy milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons cocoa
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 cup pitted and chopped cherries
On the stove, place a non-stick skillet on medium high.
|Pit & chop cherries.|
|In a small bowl, mix soy milk & apple cider vinegar. Set aside & let curdle for 5 minutes.|
|Blend all dry ingredients, gradually adding curdled mixture , coconut oil, applesauce, & vanilla.|
|Fold in cherries.|
|Place a modest sized amount onto hot skillet. Turn baby over when bubbling & edges are crisp.|
Next time I will try adding toasted walnuts and that interesting cardamom ingredient.
That bit of spice may bring tart juiciness of cherries down on the knees....
|Mmmmhmmm, cherries & luxurious maple syrup drenching atop of chocolate mountain.|
