Pancakes served with Caramelised Nectarines

Lets talk about Pancakes!  Pancake day is this coming Tuesday 28th and I've been busy playing about in the kitchen cooking up various pancake recipes from my huge Oven Cooked Pancake with Berries and Maple Syrup (which was delicious) to this more traditionally stove top cooked Pancake with Caramelised Nectarines.

Pancakes with Caramelised Nectarines

Of course basic ingredients to make a pancake are flour, milk and egg but the filling or topping of course is up to you.  From a simple sprinkling of sugar and a squeeze of lemon to more elaborate toppings; you can be adventurous as you fancy!

While making pancakes isn't exactly rocket science, you do need a good non-stick frying pan and I'm loving this Tesco Ceramic Frying Pan.  In any case a good pan isn't necessary only for pancake making but for everyday cooking.  I used the pan to caramelise the nectarines and the gooey honey and sugar mixture didn't stick at all.

If you're gluten intolerant you can use Gluten Free Flour which can be found in Tesco's as well as other most good supermarkets.  Check out Tesco's Real Food recipe for Gluten Free Pancakes.

Print Recipe





To make 4 Pancakes you will need:
2 eggs - free range of course
200g plain flour
350ml milk
a tablespoon vegetable oil

For the Caramelised Nectarines:
4 Nectarines - stones removed and each cut into eight slices
30g unsalted butter
3 tablespoons of runny honey
2 tablespoons of soft brown sugar
juice of 1 orange

Method:
Get the nectarines on the go as they will take about 15 to 20 minutes.

You will need a suitably sized non-stick frying pan that can take the nectarine slices without them being on top of each other.  Heat up the butter and add the prepared nectarines.  Cook over a low heat for about 5 minutes before turning.  Continue to cook for a further 5 minutes.

While that's happening make the pancake batter.

Now drizzle over the honey and sugar and give it a gentle stir to coat the nectarines.

Continue to cook for another 5 minutes by which time they should have started to colour nicely.  Turn them over again to colour the other side.  When they're beautifully caramelised add the juice of the orange to the pan and stir to get the gorgeous sticky bits from the pan.  Turn off the heat and cook your pancakes.

Serve each pancake with slices of nectarine and drizzle over a little of the lovely orange syrup - add a dollop of ice cream if you want to.
