Pancake day recipe: Turmeric & vanilla pancakes with agave syrup & lemon juice

These pancakes are quick to make and really delicious. They are vegan and dairy-free (not that you’d know). Note: These pancakes must be served with their agave syrup & lemon juice topping, as they complete this golden stack perfectly.

Make 9 – 10 pancakes


1 cup of atta (chapatti flour, or a mixture of 2/3 wholemeal and 1/3 plain white flour)
1/8 cup golden caster sugar
2 tbsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp turmeric
Pinch of pink Himalayan salt
1 cup coconut almond milk (or milk of choice)
1 vanilla pod
Agave syrup
1 lemon

Optional: a handful of flaked almonds


1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

2. Put the milk into a saucepan. Cut the vanilla pod in half and scrape out the seeds. Add the seeds and vanilla pod to the saucepan.

3. Gently warm through the milk and vanilla over a low heat for 3 – 4 minutes (do not boil, just warm through).

4. Remove the vanilla pod from the milk, then add the milk and vanilla seeds to the dry ingredients and stir thoroughly. The mix will froth a little when first combined, but this is normal.

5. Once the wet and dry ingredients have been combined, the pancakes are ready to be cooked.

6. Heat a pancake pan over a medium heat. Brush the pan with a little sunflower oil, and ladle a spoonful of the pancake batter onto the pan (1 ladle full of batter will make one pancake).

7. When you can see a lot of bubbles on top of the pancake (this should take a couple of minutes), they are ready to flip. Cook the second side for a couple of minutes. These pancakes will appear really dark brown when cooked, and will lighten in colour once off the heat.

8. Repeat the above process till you have cooked all the batter.

9. Serve the pancakes drizzled with agave syrup and lots of lemon juice. you can also toast some flaked almonds in a little agave syrup to add a crunchy texture.

We are having such fun cooking from The Spice Pack Collection and all the dishes have come out brilliantly. The smell is divine and Rob, who is very fussy, is particularly impressed. All our visitors are wowed when they smell the box – we’ve been too possessive to share any with others, as yet!

As a natural therapist I particularly appreciate the healthy aspect of each dish, none of which compromise on taste. Good ingredients freshly cooked makes a big difference.

We’re going on holiday with three other couples in a couple of weeks and going to take the pack with us to cook some dishes together.

“That was so fun…

Thank you for the zoom meet up. That was so fun. We will definitely be up for another. Please send another suitable invite and kit. We are predominately veggies so used the butternut squash version. If this continue the local takeaway will suffer for sure. Again thanks”.

Pam Brown – dinner kit with cook-along customer

“Thank you so much both…

– the class was amazing and we both really enjoyed the food. It makes so much difference knowing exactly how to do things and that we can make such tasty food which is gluten free. Jeera rice has always been my favourite but many restaurants don’t have it on the menu”.

Roy P…dinner kit with cook-along customer

“Many thanks…
...for the cook–along workshop yesterday. It was very enjoyable and the meal tasted lovely. As someone who is not a confident cook it was ideal to follow your teaching. I have recommended this to a friend of mine who is very interested in joining the next cook–along. I will definitely be doing it again”.

Ellie Pipe

I highly recommend this lovely family run local company…

... We’ve enjoyed 2 of their meal kits now along with an online cook along to show us what to do. Thank you.

Diane McGillivray

I love them all and would highly recommend…

...If I had to choose one it would be the Mango chicken.
