Ingredients (2 servings)

200g wholemeal spelt flour
2 eggs
200ml milk
2 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp chopped chives
1/8 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 tbsp white vinegar
100g smoked salmon
20g baby spinach
2 tbsp hollandaise sauce
1 tbsp chopped chives
-Black pepper, to taste

Make pancakes

  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix all the ingredients for the pancakes until combined. Do not overmix.
  2. Heat up a nonstick skillet over low heat. Spoon 2 tbsp of batter onto skillet and cook for 2 minutes of each side. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Repeat until all batter is used up.

Poach eggs

  1. Crack each egg into a ramekin or a small bowl.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 1 tbsp vinegar to water, and stir to create a vortex. Carefully pour the eggs into the middle of the vortex, one at a time, and set a timer for 3 minutes.
  3. When the timer is up, use a slotted spoon the remove the poached eggs from the water.


  1. Stack pancakes with a thin layer of hollandaise, smoked salmon and spinach. Top each stack with a poached egg and more hollandaise sauce. Sprinkle chives and black pepper on top. Serve immediately.
  • For the best poached eggs, use fresh eggs.
  • Feel free to substitute spelt flour with any other all purpose flour that suits your dietary needs.
  • The residual heat from the pancakes will wilt the spinach so there is no need to cook the spinach first.
  • If you don't like smoked salmon, feel free to substitute it with classic leg ham instead!
