Googie’s Kitchen presents Turmeric and Coriander Pancakes

Turmeric and Coriander Pancakes

Pancakes are always a huge hit in our house. Normally we have pancakes on a Sunday morning with a sweet topping like maple syrup or honey. My son Ted, who is eight will always ask for either raspberry or cherry pancakes. When I make a suggestion of savoury pancakes I can hear a grown from Ted. Ted is not the biggest fan of savoury pancakes.

My husband Howard doesn’t mind a non sweet pancake occasionally. When I made these delicious pancakes I suggested we eat them with bacon and eggs too. That way my son can eat the bacon and eggs but not the savoury pancakes. If Ted is still hungry after breakfast he can have a sweet pancake instead.

My husband and I really enjoyed this dish and I had lots of leftovers. I froze the leftovers and during the week I ate them with fried eggs, avocado and spinach for my breakfast. They were so yummy with a runny egg on top of them. The avocado gave the dish a lovely bit of creaminess and the spinach, well, that was just to be a bit healthier. Below is a video and recipe for you.

Turmeric and Coriander Pancakes

Turmeric and Coriander Pancakes were a smash with Howard and myself. We really enjoyed these savoury treats with our bacon and eggs. I also enjoyed this dish with avocado and fried eggs too. These would also make a yummy snack with cream cheese or hummus on. All the ingredients in these pancakes are freezable so you can make a big batch and freeze them. However you decide to eat this savoury treat, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
