peaceful cardamom pancakes with cream.
It's a warm, sunny morning; peaceful and perfect. All that's missing is a hot cup of tea and something to enjoy with it. I think I’ll bake.
I'm feeling...
something that compliments the mood in this moment,
something I can make leisurely and with ease,
something that imparts a bright, lingering fragrance as it cooks,
something that’s warm and fluffy with a familiar yet intriguing taste...

Print Recipe
prep time: 15 minutes, cook time: 15 minutes
Makes 8-10 pancakes
  • 1 cup (148 g) all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cardamom powder
  • 2 tbsp (28 g) salted butter, melted
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • Whipped cream (premade or follow recipe below using:)
  • 250 ml whipping cream
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
First make a cup of tea and drink a good portion of it, then get started.
Put all of the dry ingredients into a mixing bowl.
Drink more of your tea.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently mix together until combined.
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium low heat. Add ½ cup of batter to the pan and cook each side of the pancake for 2-3 minutes until lightly browned.
The smell (and taste) of the cardamom adds something special to these pancakes.
Make the whipped cream (omit if using the premade variety): In a separate bowl, whip the heavy cream with the sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form.
Enjoy these pancakes with a dollop of the whipped cream topped with strawberries (or go the og route with warmed butter and maple syrup)! Either way - perfect!

Choose a recipe to fit the mood and it becomes a useful tool as well – baking to quiet the mind, to connect with your emotions, or simply baking to feel emotional.
