Strawberries and cream are a match made in heaven and I wanted to make some pancakes incorporating strawberry and cream.

I came up with this beautiful tower of light and fluffy pink ombre pancakes that don't only look stunning, but taste delicious. They are so yummy!

They are 100% vegan and made using natural sugars and juicy strawberries.

They're fun to make and would be perfect for Pancake Day. You could even serve them with dairy-free ice cream or melted chocolate...heaven!

Preparation- 5 minutes

Makes- Approximately 10-12 pancakes

Level- Easy

...

Ingredients for the pancakes

-1 cup of plain white flour (I used Doves Farm gluten-free)

-2 teaspoons of baking powder

-1 cup of almond milk

-1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar

-2 tablespoons of coconut oil

-1 teaspoon of strawberry flavouring

-Pink food colouring (make sure its vegan)

-1 tablespoon of maple syrup

-A handful of fresh strawberries

Toppings

-1 can of coconut cream

-Flaked almonds

-Maple syrup

-Handful of fresh strawberries

...

Step 1- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and baking powder.

Step 2- In a separate mixing bowl combine the almond milk and vinegar.

Allow this to stand for 5 minutes.

Step 3- Pour the almond milk & vinegar mixture, maple syrup, strawberry flavouring and melted coconut oil into the flour & baking powder mixture and combine.

Step 4- Separate the pancake mixture into 3 separate bowls.

In the first bowl add a drop of pink colouring and mix.

In the second bowl, add a drop plus a little more to make a darker colour.

Leave the last bowl as it is.

You can add strawberries to the pancakes and mix (optional)

Step 5- Place a large frying on the hob over a low light and lightly grease with oil.

Step 6- With a large spoon or ladle, carefully pour a small amount of the mixture into the centre of the hot pan.

Leave it for a minute or so then flip. Only flip when the edges of the pancake look firm enough to flip.

Step 7- Repeat this process until you have used up all of your batter and have a tower of delightful pancakes!

This will take around 10-15 minutes.

Top off with some coconut cream, fresh strawberries, flaked almonds(for added protein) and a drizzling of maple syrup!

Best enjoyed fresh and warm, yummy!
