At Tewkesbury Park, we like to put a spin on the classics.
So this Pancake Day, we’ve gone for the savoury option, topped with tomato and mint chutney. And because we like to cater for everyone here at Tewkesbury Park, we’ve made them vegan too.
About our Vegan Pancake Recipe
This delicious creation from Anuj, our head chef here at Tewkesbury Park, has been a firm favourite “small plate” option on our menu since November. And, although the general rule of thumb for chefs is to never share their secrets, Anuj has kindly given us the recipe below.
If the prospect of cooking the below seems a touch too daunting, you can always book a table in our Mint Restaurant to devour your stack of vegan pancakes straight from the chef himself. With the added bonus of no dishes to do afterward of course.
You’ll also be pleasantly surprised as to just how easy the method for our vegan pancakes actually is.
