  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp vegan red gel food coloring
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter or coconut oil melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the Cashew Cream

  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

For Assembly

Instructions

For the Pancakes

  1. In a small bowl, stir together ground flax and water. Set aside to thicken.
  2. Measure out the soy milk and pour in the lemon juice. Set aside to curdle.
  3. Whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, cocoa powder, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  4. Pour in the prepared flax egg, buttermilk, red food coloring, melted butter or coconut oil, and vanilla. Stir to combine.
  5. Grease a griddle or skillet and place over medium heat. Drop ladlefuls of batter at a time and cook until ready to flip, about 2 minutes. Flip pancakes and cook until done, about 1 minute. Repeat with remaining batter.

For the Cashew Cream

  1. Place the cashews in a small saucepan and fill with water just until cashews are covered.
  2. Cover the pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for 2-3 minutes, then drain. Transfer drained cashews to a high-speed blender.
  3. Add soy milk, coconut oil, vanilla, and maple syrup to the blender and blend on high speed until smooth.

For Assembly

  1. Place a pancake onto a plate and spread a layer of the cashew cream on top. Add layers of alternating pancakes and cashew cream, finishing with a pancake on top.
  2. Sift on some powdered sugar and decorate with fresh strawberries and raspberries. Serve with maple syrup.
