a calming Saturday breakfast

Lavender Pancakes


  • 8 ounces flour 
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered dried lavender flowers
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 tablespoons butter, melted and allowed to cool slightly
  • cooking spray 
  • lavender honey, to serve
  • butter, to serve


Prep Time: 5 mins
Total Time: 20 mins
  1. In a large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients together.
  2. Add the milk, eggs and vanilla extract and whisk until well combined.
  3. Whisk in the melted butter until the batter is thick and very smooth.
  4.  Heat frying pan or griddle over medium heat, and spray with cooking oil spray or grease with a knob of butter.
  5. Spoon the pancake batter onto the griddle in equal amounts and cook until bubbles come to the surface of the batter and the edges start to curl up.
  6. Flip pancakes with a spatula, and cook for a few seconds more on the second side.
  7. Check underneath for a golden brown colour? if they are too pale, keep cooking them a bit longer.
  8. When they are done, remove them from the griddle/frying pan and put on a large heat-proof plate in the oven to keep warm and continue until all the batter is used. Makes about a dozen pancakes.
  9.  Top with Lavender honey and cream, or butter and Lavender honey.
  10. Great with fruit also!
