Recipe for Pink Pancakes Inspired by Provencal Rosé

Who doesn’t love crepes, pancakes and waffles?

The following recipe for pink pancakes is sure to bring out the little kid inside. Ok, there is a decadent element to pancakes smothered in butter and coated liberally with maple syrup. However, this recipe is much healthier with the addition of beetroot powder. These pancakes taste great with a savoury topping for lunch, or of course as a sweet finale. The preparation for the pink pancakes is quick and don’t forget that everything is nicer when you combine your session with a glass of Rosé.

Pink Pancakes Inspired by Provencal Rosé

A fun alternative to regular pancakes inspired by the rosés of Provence.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Course Lunch Dish
Cuisine French, Provencal
Servings 15 pancakes


  • 3 eggs
  • 250 g (1 cup) Wheat Flour
  • 1 tbsp Cane Sugar
  • 200 +ml (3/4 cup) milk
  • 2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 2-3 tsp Beetroot Powder depends on how pink you would like to have them


  • Start by putting all the eggs in a stand mixer, stirring them at full power for at least 10 minutes until they turn into a thick foamy texture.
  • While the eggs are beating, combine all the dry ingredients.
  • Add the milk little by little and mix well with a whisk. If the dough is still dry, add a little bit more milk than it says in the recipe, as each type of flour is different.
  • When you have a smooth texture, and the eggs are foamy, take a spoon and carefully fold in the eggs
  • Once everything is well-blended (no lumps), heat up the pan to medium.
  • Use a neutral plant-based oil for the first pancake to prepare the pan. Tip: it’s better not to use butter as the surface doesn’t cook evenly.
  • Use 2 tablespoons of the batter per pancake, pouring it into the middle of the pan. Turn over after 1-2 minutes and cook them until ready. Note: If they are not fluffy enough, you can add more baking soda.
  • Place 5 pancakes on a tower and add the toppings of your choice (see below).


Suggested toppings:
  • 1 avocado
  • 300g soya coconut yogurt
  • 2 small fresh radishes
  • Red bell pepper
  • 50g pine nuts
  • 50g pistachios
  • 4 -5 basil leaves
  • Handful of strawberries
  • 2 squares of chocolate
  • cinnamon

Maison Mirabeau Wine

Stephen had been in the corporate world for 15 years and in August 2008 turned down a promotion that would have meant more money but also more stress, longer hours and less time with his young family. For many years the Cronks had been dreaming and talking about moving to France to make their own wine, but the moment never seemed quite right to make the big leap.

Soon after, a good redundancy offer seemed the perfect opportunity to turn the dream into reality and after selling their beloved house, they left the leafy suburbs of south-west London in August 2009. Their worldly possessions were packed up on the back of a truck and with barely a word of French between them, the family headed south to a small village called Cotignac, in the heart of Provence.

The Cronks spent a year getting their bearings, learning to live the provençal way, as Stephen was criss-crossing the country researching and finding the best vineyards to work with. The next step was setting up a small wine business with the principle objective of making a Provence rosé that would be regarded as one of the very best from the region, while building a brand that people would grow to love. In order to achieve this aim, they put together a highly experienced winemaking team and threw their heart and soul into the brand and innovative communications with their customers. Mirabeau is now being sold in more than 30 markets, has won medals and earned acclaim from some of the world’s toughest wine critics, but what really makes Stephen happiest is that their wines are an integral part of people having a great time together.
