I told you my cashew custard would be making another appearance!
Here it is used as the dressing but also as part of the pancake mix (this can be substituted for regular cashew butter if you are not planning on making cashew custard). The pancakes are perfect for a summer brunch or dessert and you can dress them up however you fancy… I warn you now, they are pretty filling!
When cooking pancakes, I find that it helps to keep them fairly small, no larger than fist sized rounds as otherwise it can be tricky to flip them…or maybe I just haven’t got the knack!
I have also topped my with chia jam, such a simple recipe of mashed berries and ground chic seeds. The sweetness of the berries really shines, but you could add some extra sweetener to the mix if you prefer.
