Orange and Cinnamon Pancakes

This easy pancake recipe comes from food and lifestyle blogger PeaSoup aka Aine Carlin
  • 150g spelt flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • Juice and zest of 1/2 orange
  • 240ml soya (or other plant-based) milk
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp all-spice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tbsp melted Vita Coco Coconut Oil

  1. Place the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt, spices and orange zest in a large bowl and whisk to combine.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk the soya milk, pumpkin purée, maple syrup and orange juice together until smooth.
  3. Make a well in the centre of the flour, pour in the wet mixture and whisk.
  4. Heat a frying pan and melt the Vita Coco Coconut Oil before pouring into the pancake batter. Whisk to combine and set aside for a minute or two.
  5. Return the pan to the stove, brush with a little more Vita Coco Coconut Oil and bring to a medium-high heat. Using a 1/4-sized measuring cup (or an ice-cream scoop) ladle in the pumpkin batter, cooking one at a time for best results.
  6. Cook for around 4-5 minutes or until bubbles begin to appear on top and the sides look dry before flipping.
  7. Cook for a further minute or so before transferring to a plate.
  8. Cover with a clean tea towel to keep them warm. Repeat until all the mixture is used up … you should get approximately 10-12 pancakes out of the batter mix.
