MACADAMIA NUT HOT CAKES
These hotcakes are my absolute FAVORITE thing to eat when I'm craving a sweet breakfast! Give these crumble-cakes a try and let us know what you think in the comments below. happy
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 4 tbsp coconut oil
- 1 cup all purpose gluten-free flour
- 1/2 cup almond meal
- 2 tbsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 cup coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup macadamia nuts
- 1/2 cup coconut milk
- 1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1. Heat your oven to 350.
2.Combine all of your dry ingredients and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.
3. In a separate bowl, combine all of your wet ingredients and mix thoroughly with a wooden spoon.
4. Mix your wet ingredients into your dry ingredients. The mixture should appear to be quite cakey. You do not want it to appear too thin.
5. Let sit for 10 minutes.
6. Add the mixture to small brûlée dishes and bake for 20 minutes or until golden.
When the hotcake is baked it will crumble quite easily. This will happen due to the mixture of almond meal and macadamia nuts as well as the oil in this mixture. I prefer this texture and it's fabulous topped with the following:
- Our Triple Berry Marmalade (below)
- Toasted Hazelnuts
- Toasted Coconut
- Lavender Petals (limit to only a few petals - bitter if overused)
- Pomegranate seeds
- Organic Blueberries or Strawberries
- Pure Maple Syrup
- Edible Flowers (for a pop of color & elegance)
TRIPLE BERRY MARMALADE:
- 3 cups frozen mixed berries (ORGANIC)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2-3 dates
- 1/4-1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/2 tsp agar agar
- Combine the mixed berries and water into a pan on your stovetop set to medium heat.
- Once t he berries have become soft, and the majority of the liquid has cooked off, pour your orange juice into the mixture as well as your dates, cinnamon, and agar agar.
- Stirring constantly to ensure that the mixture does not burn, briefly allow the mixture to boil to ensure that the agar-agar has fully been incorporated into the mixture. This will give the mixture a jelly/marmalade-like texture.
- If you do not have agar-agar on hand or cannot find it, you can omit the ingredient and your mixture will be less jelly-like (A much smoother, sauce-like consistency)
- Strain through a fine-mesh strainer and let cool.
- Use on your macadamia nut hotcakes, toast or in your morning organic greek yogurt or non-dairy based yogurt (We recommend Kitehill!)
- Reserve in the fridge for up to 1 week.
