Carrot Cake Pancake Recipe

I thought a special Easter-inspired breakfast was in order this week – I’m sure the Easter bunny will approve these Carrot Cake Pancakes! These lovely spiced pancakes are straight forward to make and served with the Spiced Cream Cheese, are just delicious.

Ingredients
200g (2 cups) finely grated carrot
120g (1 cup) wholemeal spelt flour
¼ teaspoon clove, ground
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1-2 tablespoons rapadura or coconut sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla powder or essence
180g (¾ cup) full-fat natural or coconut yoghurt
60g (¼ cup) milk of your choice

Spiced Cream Cheese
1 cup of quark, labne, coconut yoghurt or cream cheese
1 tablespoon of maple syrup
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground

Method

  1. Grate your carrot either by hand or in the Thermomix, 3 seconds speed 4 or until finely grated. It needs to be finely grated so it cooks through (otherwise they will be crunchy).
  2. Add the flour, spices, bicarb, baking powder, salt and sugar. Mix to combine (Thermomix reverse, 5 seconds, speed 3).
  3. Now add the egg, vanilla, yoghurt and milk and mix to just combine (Thermomix reverse, 5 seconds, speed 3).
  4. Cook in a little butter, ghee or coconut oil in a hot pan, but turn it down to a low to medium heat flipping once the mixture bubbles. Try not to cook to fast (on a high heat) as you want to give the carrot a little time to cook.
  5. To make the spiced cream cheese simply mix all the ingredients together.

Variations
Gluten-free
Replace the spelt with a good quality gluten free flour.

Chocolate
Add a tablespoon of cacao powder to make them chocolatey.

    I am drooling just looking at this! I don’t think I’ll be able to get the ingredients in time for Easter but it will definitely happen soon!

  • Linda Robinson

    Just had them, another total winner of a recipe!! So light and fluffy with a slight crunch on the outside. Great start to the holidays ?

    • Thrilled you enjoyed them Linda, thanks for your comment G x

  • Rachel

    I made these today – SO GOOD!!!!! I especially love the labne topping! I made both the spelt version and the GF (buckwheat/almond) version and both were munched down with loads of enthusiasm by nine of us!!

  • Pancakes for nine! – huge effort and thrilled you loved both versions. Thanks for your feedback Rachel G x

Kind words…

“I downloaded your ebooks after hearing you speak at the Health and Wellness Summit in Melbourne. Love them, life changing… Don’t stop! Thank you for getting the whole food message out there, I certainly heard it.” Melanie

“I love your ebooks, I have all three of them now and they are now my only go to receipe books. They are simple, wholesome and taste great. THANK YOU!!! I have spent alot of money on courses about healthy eating and recipe books but your books have covered it all and my little man enjoys the snacks etc. Wish I would have found you earlier “. Brooke

“I just want to say a huge thank you for your amazing website and information. I’ve never liked cooking and never got excited by my ‘healthy’ cooking. My husband is even worse and if he could, he would just eat beacon and eggs every morning and steak every night. He hardly ate any veggies. Since I found your website I have gone through almost every recipe. My husband is loving every meal as well – even meat free Monday, and he’s taking left-overs to work for lunch (honestly, who thought that could be so hard?!)” Rose

“You have truly helped me and my family to lead a healthier lifestyle. I’ve been referring to your page every few days, very inspiring, so thank you!” Emily

“What a fantastic blog filled with so many great recipes and information!” Carla

“I just wanted to let you know that you have absolutely inspired me to a better way of eating, I’ve been making my shopping lists based on recipes you’ve shared and am educating my kids with the reasons behind different foods and why they are good etc! This page has become my little bible hehe! Thank you so much for all the detail you give. It’s absolutely wonderful!” Sky
