Cherry and almond are a combination often seen in a Bakewell tart, a British tea time confection consisting of cherry jam, almond sponge, and icing in a shortbread crust. This recipe is a twist on this well-known treat to form a heavenly stack of cherry Bakewell pancakes. They're thick, fluffy, filling, and not to mention they are completely nutritious too! The buckwheat flour and ground almonds make them highly energizing and a good source of plant-based protein.

  • 1/2 cup of buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 cup of ground almonds
  • 3/4 cup of almond milk
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 flax egg (1 tablespoon flax meal plus 3 tablespoons water)
  • 1 teaspoon of almond extract
  • 1/2 cup of cherries
  • 2 tablespoons of organic powdered sugar or stevia
  • 1/2 tablespoon of water
  • Flaked almonds
  • Additional cherries


  1. Begin by making your flax egg and leave it to thicken in fridge for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Blend your frozen cherries and set aside while cooking your pancakes.
  3. Mix the powdered sugar or stevia with the water and also set aside while cooking your pancakes.
  4. Mash your banana and combine with the almond milk, buckwheat flour, ground almonds, and extract in a jug. Whisk well until a thick batter has formed. Once your flax egg is ready, stir into the batter.
  5. Add a little coconut oil into a frying pan and melt over a medium heat. Once the oil is heated, Pour about 3 tablespoons of the pancake batter into the pan. Spread the mixture out using a spoon or use a pancake ring to form your pancake shape. Allow it to cook for several minutes until bubbles start to form on the top. Pop the frying pan under the grill, leave for several more minutes until the pancake is firm on top. Alternatively, you can flip the pancakes, however, they will not be as thick and fluffy. Repeat this process with the rest of your batter.
  6. Layer the pancakes with 1 heaped teaspoon of cherry sauce. Once you have a stack of pancakes, top with the icing and flaked almonds.
