It’s Pancake Tuesday tomorrow, and to celebrate, we’ve teamed up with the guys at JWV+ to bring you a trio of great pancake recipes to try out. First up is an orange and cardamom combo, which takes inspiration from the JWV+ orange and mandarin flavoured drink. The eastern inspired flavours of orange and cardamom are a perfect pairing, and we have teamed them with a honey mandarin glaze. check out our lemon, lime and poppy seed pancakes, and blueberry pancake recipes for more inspiration
- 135g/4¾oz plain flour
- 135ml milk
- 1 level tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 2 tbsp caster sugar
- 2 tbsp melted butter
- 1 tsp ground cardamom (grind seeds from 10 pods if you don’t have ready ground cardamom)
- Zest 1 large orange
Honey Mandarin Glaze:
- Small tin mandarin segments
- Juice 1 large orange
- 1 tsp honey
Makes 4 – 5 pancakes
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
1. MAKE THE PANCAKE BATTER:
Add the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar to a large bowl and mix together. To this dry mix add the milk, beaten egg and melted butter and mix through until well combined.
To the mix add the zest of an orange and the ground cardamom. Stir through and get ready to cook the pancakes.
2. MAKE THE ORANGE AND CARDAMOM PANCAKES:
Place a large frying pan over a low heat and grease lightly with butter. Using a ladle, pour a spoonful of the batter into the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip the pancake over and continue to cook for a further minute until golden. Repeat this process with the rest of the batter. While your pancakes are cooking, move on to making the glaze.
3. MAKE THE HONEY MANDARIN GLAZE:
Add the juice of a large orange to a saucepan on a low-medium heat. Add a squeeze of honey and the mandarin segments (drained) to the juice and gently stir. Simmer for a couple of minutes and get ready to serve. Don’t let the mixture boil as this will break up the mandarin segments.
4. SERVE UP AND ENJOY:
Stack the pancakes and pour a little of the honey mandarin glaze over them. Serve with a dollop of fresh cream or natural yoghurt. Check out the steps in the video below.
