Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes

Fluffy Buttermilk Pancakes


For the Buttermilk pancakes:
75g (1/2 cup) self-raising flour

1 tbsp vegetable oil
10g butter
To serve:
2 small apricots, cut into wedges

Creme fraiche, to serve


  1. For buttermilk pancakes, combine flour, icing sugar and orange rind in a bowl. Place egg yolks and buttermilk in a jug and whisk lightly to combine, then pour into flour mixture and whisk to combine. In a separate bowl, whisk egg whites until soft peaks form, then fold through flour mixture and set aside.
  2. Heat half the vegetable oil and butter in a frying pan over medium heat. Add ¼ cupfuls of pancake mixture and cook in batches for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden. Repeat with remaining oil, butter and mixture.
  3. To serve: arrange the pancakes in stacks on serving plates. Top with a dollop of creme fraiche and arrange peaches and strawberries on top.
