Sweet Ehuru & Carrot Pancakes

by on March 7, 2017

Because when carrots are in season, we do every and any. Because they are delish – more nutritious when cooked.


You must make them because the children, my children fell in love after initially turning up noses when these were just batter. Gorgeous carrot pancakes that are perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner.


I spiced mine with toasted Ehuru – African Calabash Nutmeg, commonly used in pepper soup and other savoury dishes. Here, it brings a smoky flavour. I skipped the baking soda – my daughter helped herself to my full box to test out her recipe for slime. More on that someday. I’m a big fan of citrus so added some orange zest – yum, yum, yum. 


They cook up quickly, this delicious things…


In no time you have a stack of orange God-to-Goodness pancakes.


[yumprint-recipe id=’76’]Definitely favourites. I’ve made them 3 or 4 times since we first discovered the recipe. Thank you world and Google and Smitten Kitchen and Joy the Baker. Did I also say that bacon has sneaked its way into a couple of the carrot pancake feasts? Yes, with vanilla ice cream too! For dinner!! On a weeknight!!! Talk about decadence :).


The end.
