Ombre strawberries (and cream) pancakes

Vegan, gluten-free, wheat-free, quick & easy, natural sugar
Who's excited for pancake day? ME!!!
Everyone loves something sweet & tasty for breakfast & brunch and pancakes are ideal.

Strawberries & cream are a match made in heaven and i wanted to make some pancakes incorporating strawberry & cream.
I came up with this beautiful tower of light & fluffy pink ombre pancakes that don't only look stunning, but taste delicious. They are so yummy!
They are 100% vegan and made using natural sugars and juicy strawberries.

They're fun to make and would be perfect for pancake day. You could even serve them with dairy-free ice cream or melted chocolate...heaven!

Preparation- 5 minutes
Makes- Approximately 10-12 pancakes
Level- Easy

Ingredients for the pancakes
-190g of plain white flour (I used Doves Farm gluten-free)
-2 teaspoons of baking powder
-260ml of almond milk
-1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
-2 tablespoons of coconut oil
-1 teaspoon of strawberry flavouring 
-Pink food colouring (Make sure its vegan)
-1 tablespoon of maple syrup
-A handful of chopped fresh strawberries

-1 can of coconut cream
-Flaked almonds
-Maple syrup
-Handful of fresh strawberries

Step 1- In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and baking powder.

Step 2- In a separate mixing bowl combine the almond milk and vinegar. 
Allow this to stand for 5 minutes.
Step 3- Pour the almond milk & vinegar mixture, maple syrup, strawberry flavouring and melted coconut oil into the flour & baking powder mixture and combine.

Step 4- Separate the pancake mixture into 3 separate bowls.

In the first bowl add a drop of pink colouring & mix.
In the second bowl, add a drop plus a little more to make a darker colour.
Leave the last bowl as it is. 
You can add chopped strawberries to the pancakes & mix (optional)

Step 5- Place a large frying on the hob over a low heat and lightly grease with oil.

Step 6- With a large spoon or ladle, carefully pour a small amount of the mixture into the centre of the hot pan.
Leave it for a minute or so then flip. Only flip when the edges of the pancake look firm enough to flip.
Step 7- Repeat this process until you have used up all of your batter and have a tower of delightful pancakes!
This will take around 10-15 minutes.

Top off with some coconut cream, fresh strawberries, flaked almonds(for added protein) and a drizzling of maple syrup!

Best enjoyed fresh & warm, yummy!
