Why not put your favourite veg IN your pancakes with this easy recipe...


For the Pancakes:

100g self-raising flour

100g buckwheat flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 egg

300ml milk

250g squash or pumpkin, peeled, deseeded and cut into small cubes

150g kale, leaves removed from stalks and shredded

100g vegetarian goat's cheese, crumbled into small pieces - or other cheese, greated

Handful pumpkin seeds / Hackney salad / Onion chutney - to serve


Mix the flours, baking powder and a good pinch of salt in a large bowl.

Beat the egg with the milk. Whisk in the milk mixture and melted butter to make a thick, smooth batter. Place in the fridge while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Over a medium heat, add a knob of butter and 1 tsp oil to a large pan, then add the squash and cook for 10 mins until tender. Add the shredded kale and turn the heat up for the final few mins to brown a little.

Remove batter from the fridge, add the cheese and squash, then carefully fold everything together.

Heat a little oil in a non-stick frying pan, then add a ladleful of batter per pancake. Allow to cook for 3 mins until bubbles cover the surface, then flip over and cook the other side until golden.

You could serve with Hackney Salad or a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds and onion chutney on the side - yum!
