Delicious pancakes! Fluffy texture with a lovely flavour from the rum soaked raisins. They were easy to make with my hand whisk. I cooked them in coconut oil, used xylitol instead of sugar & didn’t use the icing sugar. Also I didn’t have any plums so I drizzled with maple syrup & a squeeze of lemon. So tasty! When I have some plums I’m going to make them again.
