If you’ve followed our gin-making journey for a while (or you’ve been on the receiving end of one of our experiments) you’ll know that we love cardamom here at Hotham’s HQ. Our best-selling Hotham's Cardamom Gin is award-winning for its distinctive taste, and Simon, its inventor, is always trying out new cocktails and recipes or adapting old favourites with it.
Like lots of people, we tried out those lockdown foodie trends - some with more success than others - and added our own distiller’s twist. Far too many espresso martinis featuring Hotham’s Cardamom Gin were consumed over Christmas and new year, and cardamom cupcakes went down a storm. Baking’s meant to be a great stress reliever - even more so when the end result is a boozy treat like gin and lemon drizzle cake!
Tradition in our house is that on Sundays, I make breakfast, but a couple of weeks ago Simon decided to take over and came up with this stunner: pancakes with cardamom gin and orange syrup. “Gin for breakfast?” I hear you cry, some in horror and some with glee. Yes, gin for breakfast - if it’s on a plate not in a glass, it’s perfectly acceptable on the breakfast menu. Here’s the recipe - it couldn’t be simpler. Have a go (maybe save it for a weekend) and let us know what you think…
Pancakes (dairy and egg free*)
250g plain flour
530ml oat milk
30ml coconut oil (melted)
2-4 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Oil for cooking
Cardamom and orange syrup
This really is as easy as it gets!
*We made dairy and egg free pancakes, and we used GF flour, but your normal pancake recipe will work just as well.
