We’ve teamed up with vegan food brand, Squeaky Bean®, to create a cracking new recipe for sweet-toothed vegans. The Chuckie Egg – the vegan crème egg flying off the shelves – tops an indulgent and deliciously sweet pancake stack from Squeaky Bean®, forming the perfect partnership.
The recipe takes less than two minutes to make and promises to shake up Shrove Tuesday with an irresistible alternative to less extravagant pancake toppings.
Last year, nearly half (49.7%) of UK shoppers took part in Shrove Tuesday, which this year falls on 25 February. Despite traditional pancake toppings usually containing eggs and milk, by using Squeaky Bean® pancakes and Mummy Meagz Chuckie Eggs, anyone following a plant-based diet – or reducing their intake of animal products – won’t need to miss out on the fun this Pancake Day.
Meagan Boyle, co-founder of Mummy Meagz, says: “There is no reason why vegans should have to miss out on the tastiest celebrations in the calendar due to their ethical principles. My mission is to ensure those following a plant-based diet can still indulge in treats. We love seeing new creations made with our Chuckie Eggs and these Squeaky Bean® pancake stacks could be one of our best collaborations to date.”
This simple to make recipe – detailed below – requires only basic kitchen equipment, making it perfect for preparing at home, work or in student kitchens.
Ingredients (serves two):
2 packs of Squeaky Bean® Vegan Fluffy American Pancakes
4 Mummy Meagz Chuckie Eggs (or extra if you’re feeling adventurous)
2 scoops vegan vanilla ice cream
1 dessert spoon icing sugar (for dusting)
Step 1: Remove Squeaky Bean® pancakes from their packaging, stack on a plate, and heat on full power for 25 seconds in an 800W microwave (all microwaves vary, so use this as a guide)
Step 2: Remove the foil from two of the Mummy Meagz Chuckie eggs, chop into small pieces, place in a bowl, and heat in a microwave for 45 seconds, or until melted.
Step 3: While the Chuckie Eggs are melting, scoop two balls of ice cream and place on the top of the Squeaky Bean® pancake stack
Step 4: Stir three tablespoons of maple syrup into the melted Chuckie Eggs gently with a heat-proof spoon and drizzle over the top and sides of the ice cream and Squeaky Bean® pancake stack
Step 5: Remove the foil from the remaining two Chuckie Eggs, carefully cut lengthways in half, and heat in the microwave for 10 seconds
Step 6: Using a heatproof spoon, place these between the ice cream scoops, and finish by dusting icing sugar over top of the stack with a sieve
Step 7: Tuck into your tasty pancake stack!
