Oven Cakes (non-fried pancakes)
Apricot, Blueberry and Sunflower Seeds
with Spelt and Buckwheat Batter


1-1/2 cups Spelt Flour
1/2 cup Buckwheat Flour
1 lg. or 2 sm. Bananas
1/2 cup Pitted Dates (whole or pieces)
1/2 cup Sunflower Seeds, raw, hulled
1-1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
Apple Juice
1 pint Blueberries, frozen
6-12 Apricots


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  In a large mixing bowl place the spelt and buckwheat flour.  Add the baking soda and mix well.  Add the sunflower seeds and frozen blueberries.  We use frozen blueberries to prevent premature bursting while baking, and suggest washing and freezing the blueberries the day before use.  Mix well.

In a high speed blender place the bananas, dates, and just enough apple juice to facilitate grinding into a smooth, thick liquid.  Cover the blender and run it at high speed until smooth.  Add to the flour mixture.  Wash down the blender container with a little apple juice and add as necessary to the flour mixture.  Mix until the batter is smooth but slightly stiff, adding apple juice as necessary.

Spoon the batter onto a non-stick or lightly oiled baking sheet to form the size oven cakes you desire.  Add apricot halves (cut side down) on top of the oven cakes.  Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the oven cakes are firm. 

The juice from the apricots and blueberries provides a natural syrup. 


The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-11)
