As far as I remember from my childhood those fatty goldenbrown ‘Granny style'(read: very fatty) spoon-pancakes(lusikapannkoogid) have always been food that was made when there wasn´t much else to eat in the house but some flour in the corner of the cupboard and a bit of fermented milk. Not to mention that there was always some homemade jam there. Raspberry, strawberry and black currant flavours go really well with those spoon-pancakes.
I make similar healthy snacks with variating ingredients every now and then to take with me if I know that I might be stuck doing physical work like gardening or building or hiking for a whole day. Quite often the time flies and I do skip meals and remember food when I´m already super hungry.
Sweet meadowsweet blossoms don´t only attract pollinators but the one´s who have sweet tooth too. I´ve used those sweet blossoms in various desserts and bakes to reduce the amount of sugar and give them an interesting flowery flavour.
It´s easy to make sugared petals but it adds a lot of colour and some extra floral vibes to your bakes. I used mallow flowers because that´s what blossomed near me at that time. You can aslo use other flowers:
- Rosehip or rose(Rosa)
- Johnny Jump up heartsease(Viola tricolor)
- Pumpkin blossoms (Cucurbita pepo)
- Garden phlox(Phlox paniculata)
- Lemon-scented geranium(Pelargonium crispum),
- Rose Geranium(Pelargonium graveolens)
- Peppermint-scented geranium(Pelargonium Tomentosum)
Yup that´s the name of this sweet fatty no-fail no-bake cake. This sausage looking sweet used to be on our birthday table in the ´90. So now it has somewhat nostalgic vibe to it. Obviously back then it wasn´t vegan but the ingredients are so simple that you might be able to get all of them from any nearest food store or even from a kiosk. I think a dessert called rocky road is quite similar to this.
