Wales is well know for cooking on a griddle, a large metal flat skillet(no sides)–it’s where our Welsh Cakes were traditionally made and are still made today in many houses.
Now, I love a pancake and a Welsh Cake but as you may (or may not) know, I am on a food journey to be sugar, dairy and wheat free.
I couldn’t possibly do without my pancakes, especially on Pancake Day, or any other day I fancy them actually!
So, to help me and my lovely guests that are on their own food journeys, we now offer Pancakes that are wheat and sugar free and as we are in Wales, it’s only right to call them by their Welsh name-Crempog, or Crempogau, for plural.

To make 2 servings
125g ground almonds

¼ tsp salt
1 tsp oil
• Mix all the ingredients together, add more water if required to achieve a dropping consistency
• Using a dessert spoon, spoon the mixture onto the griddle in circular portions (use a frying pan rubbed with olive oil or coconut oil if you don’t have a griddle)
• Turn each pancake when bubbles appear and the edges are cooked
