February 12, 2016

Buckwheat Breton Galettes With An Autumnal Filling

Buckwheat is a commonly used gluten free ingredient, often seen in classic Breton pancakes. Filled with sticky apple, apricot and pinenuts these make a delicious pudding, or indulgent brunch.

Makes about 8 pancakes - Preparation time - 30 mins

Ingredients

For the galettes

For the topping/filling
  • 1tbs Clearspring Coconut Oil
  • 2 apples - cored and cut into 8 wedges
  • 6 dried apricots - cut into pieces
  • 1 tbs pinenuts
  • 2 tbs rice malt syrup

Method

  1. Place the ground chia seeds into a small bowl, add a tablespoon of water and stir. Leave to stand for a few minutes to become gelatinous. Pour the buckwheat flour into a large bowl, whisk in the milk, chia seed mixture and most of the water until you have a thin batter.
  2. Heat a little of the coconut oil in a frying pan over a medium heat, ladle in a spoon of the pancake mixture, give it a gentle swirl and allow to cook. Turn once, when the bubbles rise to the surface. Keep warm in the oven whilst you cook the rest.
  3. To make the filling melt the coconut oil in a small frying pan and fry the apples and apricots until soft and starting to brown, add the pinenuts and rice malt syrup and cook until thick and sticky. Serve immediately.
