Gluten-Free Pancakes with Spiced Syrup and Blueberries

This super simple and speedy pancake recipe will have jaws dropping when you bring them piled high to the table. Using fresh spices in the homemade syrup really brings the dish to life, and flaked almonds and blueberries sprinkled on top make for a very beautiful dish.



Food processor


150g Dove's GF self-raising flour
2 Eggs
Half a tsp Gluten free baking powder
40g Clear Honey
150ml Oat Milk (we like Oatly, though note it is not gluten-free)

150ml water
200g Maple Syrup
4 Cinnamon sticks
6 Whole cloves
6 Cardamom Pods
200g Pitted Dates

100g Blueberries
40g Flaked Almonds


Makes approx. 12 pancakes


1. Add the flour and baking powder to the mixing bowl. Create a well in the middle of the dry ingredients then add the eggs, milk and honey. Whisk together until smooth.

2. Add to a measuring jug then rest in the fridge for 15 mins.

3. Heat 1 tsp of oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. When the oil has warmed, pour in the mixture so the pancakes are approximately 8cm wide. Make sure you don’t put the pancakes too close together as they will spread during cooking.

4. Cook the pancakes on their first side for about 1-2 mins or until lots of tiny bubbles start to appear and pop on the surface.

5. Flip the pancakes over and cook for a further minute on the other side. Repeat until all the batter is used up.

6. To serve, stack your pancakes and drizzle over the spiced syrup. Decorate with toasted flaked almonds and blueberries.

FOR THE SYRUP - makes enough for a jam jar

1. Bring all ingredients apart from the dates to the boil. Once up to temperature simmer for 10 mins.

2. Add the dates and simmer for a further 10 mins.

3. Remove from heat, remove the cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks and cloves then blitz with a food processor or blender until smooth.
