Pancakes with Caramelised Nectarines

Pancakes with Nectarines

Pancake day is nearly here again and I've been busy playing about in the kitchen cooking up various pancake recipes.

From my huge Dutch Baby Pancakes - Oven Cooked Pancakes with Berries and Maple Syrup recipe which, by the way, were delicious, to these more traditionally stovetop cooked Pancakes with Caramelised Nectarines.

Of course, basic ingredients to make a pancake are flour, milk and egg but the filling or topping but that's entirely up to you, just top the pancakes with whatever you fancy.

From a simple sprinkling of sugar and a squeeze of lemon to more elaborate toppings; you can be adventurous as you want to be.

While making pancakes isn't exactly rocket science, you do need a good non-stick frying pan. In any case, a good frying 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.

Pancakes with Caramelised Nectarines

Jamie Oliver pancake batter - These are the simplest pancakes to make with kids. You don’t even need scales to weigh out the ingredients – all you need is a cup or a mug!
Prep time: 25 MinCook time: 5 MinTotal time: 30 Min

Ingredients

Pancake Batter
  • 1 large free-range egg
  • 1 cup of self-raising flour
  • 1 cup of milk
  • sea salt
For the Caramelised Nectarines
  • 4-6 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

Instructions

Make the Pancake Batter
  1. To make the batter, crack the egg into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the flour, milk and a tiny pinch of sea salt.
  3. Whisk everything together until you have a lovely, smooth batter.
  4. Put a large frying pan on medium heat and after a minute or so, add ½ tablespoon of oil.
  5. Carefully tilt the pan to spread the oil out evenly.
  6. Add a few ladles of batter to the pan, leaving enough space between each one so they have room to spread out slightly – each ladleful will make one pancake, and you’ll need to cook them in batches.
  7. Cook the pancakes for 1 to 2 minutes, or until little bubbles appear on the surface and the bases are golden, then use a fish slice to carefully flip them over.
  8. When the pancakes are golden on both sides, use a fish slice to transfer the pancakes to a plate.
  9. Repeat steps 5 to 9 with the remaining batter, adding ½ tablespoon of oil to the pan between batches, if needed.
Make the Caramelised Nectarines
  1. Get the nectarines on the go as they will take about 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. You will need a suitably sized non-stick frying pan that can take the nectarine slices without them being on top of each other.
  3. Heat up the butter and add the prepared nectarines. Cook over low heat for about 5 minutes before turning. Continue to cook for a further 5 minutes.
  4. Now drizzle over the honey and sugar and give it a gentle stir to coat the nectarines.
  5. Continue to cook for another 5 minutes by which time they should have started to colour nicely.
  6. 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.
  7. Turn off the heat and cook your pancakes.
  8. Serve each pancake with slices of nectarine and drizzle over a little of the orangery syrup. You can add a dollop of ice cream if you want to.
