Alpro #deskfest challenge day 5



For the final day of my #deskfest challenge, it only seemed right to finish with a flourish and rustle up something slightly more indulgent for my concluding Alpro breakfast. I think the ultimate breakfast, if my waistline wasn’t a factor, would be a stack of American pancakes drenched in sugary maple syrup with a mountain of tumbling fruit on the side. So I took this idea and gave it a slightly healthier twist with the addition of stewed fruit and vanilla yoghurt. And how adorable is this hand painted Tiffin from Nkuku? Such a practical yet stylish way to transport your fest to your desk!

American pancakes with ginger syrup fruit compote and Alpro vanilla pouring yoghurt

For the pancakes:

3 large free-range eggs

115g plain flour

1 heaped teaspoon of baking powder

140ml Alpro soya milk

a pinch of salt

(see method here – thanks to my boy Jamie!)

For the compote:

Place strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and a diced apple in a saucepan

Add a tablespoon of ginger syrup

Gently stew on a low heat until all the fruit has softened

Stack ’em high, serve with an indulgent helping of Alpro’s pouring yoghurt and enjoy!
