Cinnamon splash!

This cute dessert with a British name is very good and very easy to make :-) The “crêpe” style dough is garnished with dry fruits, walnuts and honey and of course cinnamon as the name of the dessert indicates! I have included another variance in which I have introduced as well an apple diced in small cubes. I often eat this dessert at breakfast in order to start the day the best way I can :-) Make it and tell me all about it!

In two words:

Steps

for the dough

  • Bake for 2’-3’ and return the dough at half times

to bring everything together

  • Place the cooked dough into a plate
  • Spread diagonally the dried raisins
  • Spread the crashed walnuts on top of the raisins
  • Pour the liquid honey on top all over the garnish or just sprinkle some sugar
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon
  • Dégustez en pliant la galette comme une crêpe ! Trop bon !

option #1 – for garnishing

  • Once you have placed the dried raisins and the walnuts, spread all over the apple diced in small cubes
  • Finish-up garnishing with cinnamon and enjoy! Very good also :)

What’s the story behind this dessert?

This dessert is called in Greek tiganites or τηγανίτες and usually the dough contains whist and is baked into a lot of olive oil; they are the Greek pancakes. I prefer this light version that resembles a lot in texture to French crêpes but they don’t have either egg or milk. So it’s 100% vegan dish dessert if you use olive oil to bake the dough. Of course, I bake them using just a little bit of fat and I garnish them with dried raisins, apple, honey (or sugar or even coconut syrup) and I sprinkle them generously with cinnamon and that’s where the name of the dessert comes from. You need to taste it as crepes with a filling!

It’s a cute dessert that I often eat at breakfast, especially when I don’t have croissants :-) It’s very simple and very good! Try it and tell me all about it :-) 

(*) if your honey becomes a bit hard, you just need to heat it up for a little bit as to make it liquid again
