Long weekend coming up, and I love to wake up to these soooo seasonal ultimate pumpkin pancakes. I usually make them the night before so I can roll out of bed and enjoy; immediate satisfaction!
This batter has the usual ingredients for making pancakes, you can tailor-make it to every season: add roasted stone fruit like peaches in the summer, or berries like blueberries; in spring add roasted rhubarb. Basically any fruit that has not a high water content works. Also unsweetened chestnut creme will work lovely too.
I roasted off pumpkin wedges and blitzed them in a food processor till smooth mash. Last week I used it to make hummus ( click HERE) and week before I used it in my risotto ( click HERE) – it’s the pumpkin season!
- Any spice works in this batter, I am not a huge fan of cinnamon so I went with my favourite turmeric. Add a pinch of nutmeg, crushed gloves and strains – just go nuts.
- When you add the milk to the batter, add a little at time and see how much you need to make a thick yet slightly;y runny batter. It may require something between 250 ml and 300 ml of milk.
- Serve with maple syrup or a caramel sauce with just, I used walnuts as they are in season now.
STEP 1: Beat the eggs with the sugar, add the melted butter. Add to the flour, the baking powder, turmeric and salt
STEP 5: make the pancakes
