during my week in the Hälsingland archipelago my friends A & D took me on a tour among the world heritage Hälsingegårdar (”decorated farmhouses of Hälsingland”) in the region. they’re old farm houses built between the 17th and 19th century, known for their exquisitely decorated festive rooms. the landscape surrounding them and the buildings really lived up to their world heritage appointment. i was especially amazed at the fantastic light within this house called the Erik-Anders farm. being located far from any other high buildings allowed for the light to flood in from every direction. i had a hard time leaving the house just because the light was so capturing. and the floors. broad raw wooden planks. those floors.
i want to wake up to that light, eating these pancakes every day for the rest of the summer.
Almond breakfast pancakes
1 ripe banana
2 small organic eggs
just over 1 dl (100 ml) almond meal
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla sugar (or a drop of vanilla extract)
butter or flavorless oil for frying
small pinch of sea salt
blueberries (or other fruit/berries) and thick yoghurt for serving
mash the banana until smooth and whisk with the eggs. mix the dry ingredients and add to the bananas and egg. if the batter is too runny add some more almond meal. fry your pancakes and indulge. i’d say you don’t need any syrup actually, the banana and almond make the pancakes quite sweet. but if you feel like it id recommend agave or maple syrup.
