Thank you Monarch for sponsoring this recipe!
February is almost here which means it’s nearly Pancake Day!
Since I have already perfected my vegan pancake recipe, I decided to create a twist, inspired by ‘Tortillas de Carnaval’.
These are small pancakes which are flavoured with cinnamon and lemon then fried. Traditionally, these are served during The Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife on Shrove Tuesday, before the celebrations end on Ash Wednesday.
It seems this has been going on for decades now and these pancakes have become a typical party dish around this time.
These are also inspired by “silver dollar pancakes’ which are essentially smaller sized pancakes too.
So these are the perfect excuse to serve pancakes outside of breakfast. Although, if you do want to serve them for breakfast – go for it!
Perfect little delicious bites for parties and gatherings. Plus, an excuse to add a bit of sunshine and exotic flavour to this cold, grey time of year.
Traditionally, the pancakes are served with some warm honey but I used agave syrup instead.
I also sprinkled on a little powdered sugar and served with lot’s of fruit. Stacking a few of the mini pancakes with some fruit and a cocktail stick is a super fun way to eat them.

Yum! I love the cinnamon and lemon flavours, and well, they are pancakes, so I definitely love them too. As they are tiny does that means I can eat extra?!
I’ve never heard of Tortillas de Carnaval but it sounds pretty perfect if lots of pancakes are involved!
it absolutely means you can have extra!

These are so cute and look delicious! I love mini foods, especially because you can eat much more right? Lol!
Exactly, Sophia! You get it :-)

These are so cute! Tiny food is always better than full-sized!
I know, right? I love miniature foods (maybe because it makes me feel I can eat more?)
