In partnership with Kenwood
This is my third recipe in collaboration with my friends at Kenwood, I’ve had a lot of fun this January taking up their challenge to get creative in the kitchen using the Kenwood Chef, a must-have for all you foodies as it allows you to have new culinary adventures with its selection of over 25 attachments, including pasta rollers and cutters, juicers, food processor attachment, blender and ice cream maker.
Have you seen all the stunning black food around recently? The trend of ‘goth’ food has been around for a little while now and doesn’t seem to be slowing down. You may have spotted striking images on your social channels and black delights popping up in restaurants. I’ve had some delicious black pizza in Barcelona and gorgeous black bao buns.
As I mentioned previously the Kenwood Chef mixer is a super convenient and effective way to whip up pancake batters, so that’s what I’ve done here. – Fluffy buckwheat pancakes with vanilla and the addition of activated charcoal. Both delicious and stunning.
I’ve been keen to try activated charcoal for some time now as not only does it transform the appearance of food it’s also said to have many health benefits such as removing toxins from the body, alleviate bloating and its even claimed to have anti -aging properties.
My batter makes six medium sized pancakes which I stacked layering chunky peanut butter, coconut yogurt and gooey quick blackberry compote. An incredible treat for brunch at the weekend?
The Kenwood Chef represents the very best of Kenwood design and engineering. This specific product has been chosen for the masterclass as it allows you to create restaurant quality food with simplicity and versatility at home.
