Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes with Bonfire Apple Salted Caramel Sauce


These aromatic, stodgy stacks of joy are an absolutely perfect fall / autumn breakfast, or even work great as a dessert with some vanilla ice cream! The bonfire toasted flavour of the sauce comes from smoked sea salt, but you could also use regular sea salt with a splash of liquid smoke. Either way, I highly recommend giving smokey flavours in sweet dishes a try. It gives food that wonderful fireside scent and contrasts well with super sweet sauces.

Spiced Pumpkin Pancakes with Bonfire Apple Salted Caramel Sauce

serves 4 to 6


Ingredients

For the pancakes

2 cups roasted & mashed or canned pumpkin

1 cup plain flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

3 tablespoons hemp protein powder (or replace with more flour)

¼ cup oats

1 tablespoon cinnamon

¼ teaspoon black pepper

A small slice of ginger

For the sauce

¼ cup butter of choice (I used a dairy free block)

1 cup golden caster sugar

½ cup apple juice or cider (I used a pressed cloudy apple juice)

2 teaspoons smoked sea salt


Method

  1. Blend all of the pancake ingredients together, adding enough water to make a thick batter.

  2. Add all of the sauce ingredients except the salt to a heavy-bottom pan over a medium heat.

  3. Cook the sauce until thickened and golden.

  4. Stir in the salt and set aside the sauce.

  5. Heat a non-stick pan over a medium heat, greasing if neccassary.

  6. Fry the pancakes, flipping only once firmed up and browned on one side.

  7. Serve the pancakes topped with the sauce.
