After a very busy week of dance recitals, a family birthday and a school family fun night, the kids certainly welcomed the PA Day today. Actually, my son always welcomes a break from school, whatever the reason.
Anyway, I decided to celebrate their day off today with a special breakfast. Blueberry and banana pancakes are always a hit around here, so that became the centre of our shared meal.
Plus, these pancakes lend themselves nicely to a colour scheme of blue and yellow, and I just happen to have a lot of blue and yellow dishes.
For our main plates, as well as our cups and saucers, I brought out our wedding china, Wedgwood Mistral. Normally, the kids don’t get to use it, but today I thought what the heck. I also used some of the wonderful blue dishes my parents have given me.
I had picked some wild daisies in a field a couple of days ago. Love the look. The smell, not so much.
The kids and I shared a pot of decaf green tea and also enjoyed orange juice mixed with cranberry juice.
The banana gives these pancakes a lovely sweet flavour and they require few ingredients. Serve with maple syrup or agave nectar. They are based on a recipe from my bible for vegan cooking, How it All Vegan.
Blueberry Banana Pancakes
Ingredients (14 medium size pancakes)
- 1 cup light spelt flour (or regular flour if you prefer)
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 banana
- 1 1/4 cups non-dairy millk
- 1 Tbsp ground flax
- 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
In a large bowl, sift the flour and baking powder together.
Stir in sugar.
In a blender, blend the banana with the milk.
Stir the banana mixture into the dry ingredients.
Stir in the ground flax.
Gently fold in the blueberries.
Cook on a well oiled or sprayed griddle to ensure the pancakes don't stick. If you find the pancakes really sticky, add a bit more flour to thicken the remaining batter.
