French Socca Cakes


Getting inspiration is hard sometimes but when you find your muse, you hang on to it as tightly as you can to keep going sometimes. Such is the case here.  I had dropped off the radar in regard to food but I’m definitely getting back in there.  Experimenting when I can so I can add more meals to my menu.

Here I made some Socca Cakes inspired by Rachel Khoo.  What a find she is!!! Happy, cheery, creative and full of zest when it comes to food. For this particular recipe, I used Bob’s Red Mill Fava Bean and Garbanzo Bean flour since the supermarket didn’t have only Garbanzo Flour.  You can add whatever seasonings you like to this, it will taste amazing no matter what!!! Top this with my Ratatouille, pour yourself a little wine, and put on a little French music (via Pandora) and pretend your in France treating yourself to some tasty cuisine! bon appetit!

Serves  4-10

1 cup cold water
1 cup garbanzo-fava bean flour
2 tablespoons of olive oil

In a bowl pour the cold water and add the garbanzo bean flour.  Add whatever spices you desire and mix with a whisk or a wooden spoon until well blended. Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 30minutes.

Spray some Pam on a griddle pan or pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil and swirl around to coat the pan.  Preheat your griddle and test it by pour a little bit of batter and seeing if it sizzles.

Once the pan is ready, with a ladle, pour your batter onto the griddle. You want to make sure just like pancakes you wait until the batter stops bubbling to turn them over…. About 3 minutes then flip over and cook for another 2 minutes or until it is beginning to brown and serve! These are even better topped with Ratatouille!
