    This indeed doesn’t sound like a pancake, but sounds and looks so delicious nonetheless! Mmmmm I’m hungry after being with the kids today :P

  2. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    OK I have to admit I kind of went whaaaaat when you said that you don’t like pancakes! I wish I didn’t but I lurrve them. Now this version looks interesting but quite unlike a pancake that I’ve seen before! :)

    Not liking pancakes! Oh git away wit ye lassie. I reckon my buckwheat pancakes would change your mind. They’re fantastic- light as a feather, slightly nutty. I can accept that your offerings today could be called breakfast cakes, but I’m sorry, they are not anything whatever like pancakes. With many of the things you make I can go with you on the journey away from the mainstream, but I think that perhaps here you’ve left me behind. (I’m more than ok with that of course, but I don’t think I’d be this keen to push the envelope). I’ve been eating linseed sprinkled on my morning cereal for a few months, and I can handle it in soy and linseed bread, but I don’t want a big cake of it. Your apricot compote still looks delicious though. And I think I’m going to have to weaken and try some of this agave stuff at some stage.

      I just googled a bit about agave syrup- and it’s low GI too! Well, that’s it, I’m going to have to go get me some. Is it hard to find? Supermarket or health food store?

    Oh sweet lovely fluffy pancakes – interesting that you like em raw as my aim is to bake them – one day! sounds like a weird ingredient list – but not as light and fluffy as pancakes – so I am not sure why they are like pancakes

  5. Agnes

    Wait – what?! I’m not going to hate (or any other H) you, but I think I might disown you! ;)

    Funny that she calls them coconut cakes when they’re mostly flaxmeal! But they do sound yummy to me (I love flax). I used to hate pancakes I got in restaurants, too, as they were always too moist and dense and had too much fat in them. . .but I love the homemade kind, that are light and fluffy and truly “cakelike.” On another note, I do hope you left the house–with all the windows open–for at least a few hours after you sprayed!!

    Thanks for submitting this to the SOS Challenge this month–looks great. :)

    PS Rupert Everett had plastic surgery?? Horrors! Must go Google.

    I do like pancakes, but given the choice, I will always, forever, and without hesitation choose waffles. I mainly only eat pancakes to get my maple syrup fix when a waffle maker isn’t present. That said, I make them on many weekends, and they do not suck. It’s especially fun to play around with different grain flours. and additions.

    But I have to say the thing that concerns me the most in this post is not the pancake-hating, but the wiggly-ant creatures. That sounds horrifying! (Can you tell I have a sick fascination with creepy-crawlies?)

    I hope you get paid a lot for this, because that just looks incredible.

    I think it’s crazy that you don’t like pancakes, but I don’t hold it against you :)

  10. Sarah B @ Bake + Bike

    Eeee I love your blog!!

    This is an interesting recipe…rosewater apricot compote sounds delightful.
    And I cannot imagine not liking pancakes…but everyone has their own food quirks I suppose ;)

  11. hungryandfrozen

    Ohh, I love pancakes, especially for dinner…seeing how much butter one pan-hot pancake can absorb is a fun pastime for me. However, I think we’ll still get along, and your reasons for disliking pancakes actually sound very plausible.

    I like the idea of these – although I don’t know that I’d draw any comparisons to pancakes…I’m longing to buy some coconut oil but it’s so expensive…I can just imagine the incredible fragrance…

    There is nothing wrong with finger licking … i do it all the time LOL!

  13. Anna Johnston

    This is the most unlike pancakes & the rosewater apricot compote on top looks wonderful, your description actually makes me really, really want to taste, sounds fabulous.
    You did make me snicker at the pancakes usually make you feel like you’ve swallowed a doona though :)

  14. msihua

    I have to say.. I’m not a big fan of pancakes either.. I’d eat them if served.. but I don’t crave them… I much rather have bacon.. hahaha

    Hannah do you use a point and shoot? or a DSLR? your photos are very nice! Have a sweet niiiight

  16. Tara

    Hi Hannah, This is a very interesting looking recipe! Just trying to get in contact with you to give you your muesli voucher and I can’t find your email anywhere on your blog (I must be missing the contact me button somewhere!). If you could email me via the contact link in the sidebar of my blog that would be great. Congratulations again! Tara

  17. Ashley @ the fit academic

    omg, these look AMAZING!! I have all the ingredients on hand, too! Maybe I’ll try it out this weekend!

  18. Simply Life

    oh what a fun breakfast idea!

  19. Alisa Fleming

    You make me giggle :)

    What about waffles? I have to be honest, I’m not really a pancake fan either, but waffles I adore.

    Hmm, I like the sound of these for sure, but I’m thinking they need some coconut added to make them real “coconut” cakes, don’t you think?

  20. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Quite right, these aren’t pancakey in the least, but I too enjoy the earthy flavor of flax. :)

  21. GirlonRaw

    Another 2 more things we have in common. 1 I don’t see the big deal about pancakes, no my tummy doesn’t explode BUT seriously, what is the big deal about edible kitchen sponge with syrup? I love your pancake manor order. Infact I want some right now!

    2 flax and me are not friends. (and I am not a raw food newbie). I am still struggling to find that elusive flax cracker recipe that doesn’t taste like cardboard and Russell James could never understand my aversion to crackers or breads made from it :S

  22. Kim @ AFfairs of Living

    what a lovely looking breakfast cake! i’ve seen Ani’s recipe before and this looks like a wonderful version. it is fun to read your blog – i’ve never been over here before! Thanks so much for submitting to the SOS Kitchen Challenge, and I hope to explore your blog more!

    Yeah, those sound nothing like pancakes, but I think I would love them, but then I love anything containing coconut oil.

    Oh, and I think you might really enjoy the brown rice flour pancakes as they’re light – not too heavy…and they’re wonderful with coconut cream. Yet another reason to buy some coconut flour. ;)

  24. Tori Mori

    These look amazing!!! I love your plate too!

  25. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Wow, these look amazing!!! I love the combination with the fruits too. I must try this, Hannah!

    I upped the coconut factor by using coconut nectar in place of the agave nectar. Can’t wait to sample the results!

    Now I do love pancakes (especially gluten-free buttermilk pancakes that my hubby makes), so these won’t replacing that. I see these more like a breakfast-on-the-go or even a cookie-type treat after dinner!

  27. Kim

    Oh they were divine! That’s a shame you don’t have coconut nectar there. I found it at my local whole foods market. Maybe you could buy it online, because it’s a lower glycemic index than agave and so delicious! Here is the brand I used on Amazon – http://www.amazon.com/Coconut-Secret-Nectar-Glycemic-Sweetener/dp/B003XB9EFK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1297301532&sr=8-1. There’s also coconut vinegar, etc. Next time I make them I think I’ll add coconut flake. The more coconut the better!

    I rarely eat pancakes either – though I make them almost weekly for my kiddo. These, on the other hand. These I think I would eat.
