I have a lovely friend called Tory who has a list of food that she can’t eat that’s as long as your arm. I can’t imagine being so restricted with my diet. I’m in the middle of my February ’30 day challenge'(yes I know there are only 28 days in Feb but I choose a new challenge each month!) and this month it’s no chocolate and no crisps. Last month it was no Dr Pepper and I didn’t struggle with that at all but this – no crisps business is proving to be a real challenge, so I can only imagine how hard it was for Tory to deal with being told that she would have to cut out ……..
“sugar; all grains (so: no bread, pasta, couscous, polenta, rice or even quinoa); yoghurt, cream, milk, soft cheese, chick peas, sweet potatoes and potatoes, soya, broad beans and butter beans”
Why am I telling you all this? Well she has a new blog How to eat (when you can’t eat anything at all) and I totally love it. Her recipes have to use a different combination of everyday foods in a creative way and she makes them all sound so yummy and intriguing that I thought I’d share it with you.
A few weeks ago she posted about Almond pancakes and as it’s pancake day next week I thought I’d share her recipe with you. Just click on the link above or either of the photos of my Almond pancakes (which didn’t last very long I have to say!) to be sent straight through to Tory’s blog.
Because these pancakes don’t contain flour – just ground almonds they don’t taste like regular pancakes. They have a more granular texture. I really like that difference but what made it for me was the cinnamon honey. What a brilliant idea. Why didn’t I think of that before?
Are you gluten or dairy free or someone like me who just loves anything almond? Let me know. I’d love to hear how you get on with this recipe

Hi Emma not a comment about the pancakes could you tell me how thick ithe sugar paste rolled to cover a cake many thanks PS I will try the pancake mix
I use spacers to roll out my sugar paste that way it’s completely even. They’re basically thick plastic rulers which you place either side of your sugarpaste and the rolling pin sits ontop of them to control it’s thickness. You can see them on Sugarcraft & Cake Decorating Plastic Spacers 2mm depth – 300mm length for rolling perfect flower paste and sugar paste on Wedding Cakes & Celebration Cakes“>Amazon here…
They’re measure 3mm deep so around the thickness of a £1 coin.
I hope that helps
George and I love almonds – think he’d got nuts (pardon the pun) for this!
He he he!
Delicious looking pancakes. I’ll check out your friend’s blog too.
Thanks Julie. x
