LUSCIOUS PANCAKES WITH CARAMELISED SATSUMAS & RICH CHOCOlATE ICE CREAM
Traditional pancakes served with a less traditional combo of caramelised satsumas and Luscious Rich Chocolate ice cream. For chocolate orange lovers everywhere... Terry's eat your heart out.
For the caramelised satsumas:
• 25g/1oz butter
• 2 satsumas, peeled and sliced into thick rounds (oranges will do if you can’t get satsumas)
• 2 tbsp golden caster sugar
1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
2. Melt the butter in an ovenproof frying pan over a medium heat, then add the satsumas and sprinkle over the sugar. Gently fry for 2-3 minutes, until the sugar has dissolved, then transfer to the oven to roast for 4-5 minutes, or until the satsumas have caramelised.
Pancakes: (makes about 6-8 pancakes, depending on pan size)
• 100g plain flour
• Pinch salt
• 175ml milk
• 2 eggs
• 1 tbsp melted butter
• Sunflower oil or butter for frying
1. Put the flour and a pinch of salt into a large bowl
2. Make a well in the centre and crack the eggs into the middle.
3. Whisk from the centre, either by hand or with an electric whisk, gradually whisking the flour from the edges into the eggs. Then slowly start pouring in the milk and whisk until you have a batter that is the consistency of slightly thick single cream. Now whisk in the melted butter.
4. Heat a frying pan over a moderate heat, then wipe it with oiled kitchen paper (using the sunflower oil or butter).
5. Ladle some batter into the pan, tilting the pan to move the mixture around for a thin and even layer.
6. Leave to cook, undisturbed, for about 30 secs. If the temperature of the pan is right, the pancake should turn golden underneath after about 30 secs and will be ready to turn.
7. Use a spatula to get underneath and ease the pancake away from the pan surface, then flip over and cook for another 30 secs before turning out onto a warm plate.
8. Continue with the rest of the batter, serving them as you cook or stack onto a plate.
9. Serve with the caramelised satsumas and a scoop of Luscious Rich Chocolate ice cream.
NOTE: The thicker the mixture, the thicker the pancakes will be, so experiment a little with the amount of milk you use to get the batter consistency just right for how you like them! 200-250ml of milk will give a thinner, more crepe-like pancake.
