Lilac honeycomb pancakes | Recipe on Due fili d'erba | Two Blades of grass | Photos, styling and recipe by Thais FK

At the end of June we visited Latvia. In Riga there’s an amazing Market Place from where one can find so many goods. We were told to buy honey from there, as they sell it unprocessed and in huge 5 kilos jars at a very reasonable price. One thing I was not expecting to find and definitely the best souvenir I bought from there was raw honeycomb. Here in Finland I’ve never seen it anywhere, but now that I think about it, it is quite a rare find in Italy too.

Honeycomb is the purest form of honey, as it includes both the honey at its rawest state and beeswax, which has many nutritional values and health benefits, besides adding an interesting crunchiness to the palate experience.

I thought to pair the honeycomb with lilac flavor, which is now finally blooming in Northern Finland too (yay!), so I created a simple lilac sugar that is added to the pancake batter. That’s how the lilac honeycomb pancakes were born. If you’d like to continue making this recipe all year round, you can preserve the lilac sugar by freezing it.

Also, these pancakes can be easily prepared the evening before and warmed up in the morning. I don’t know about you, but that definitely gives me a good reason to get out of bed, especially on Mondays!
