Keywords: Hot Vegetarian Fruit Dessert Pudding Pancake Day Shrove Tuesday

For the Apricots
60ml/2fl.oz. Maple Syrup or Honey
The juice of 2 Oranges
1 tbsp finely chopped Stem Ginger
5 Apricots, halved and stoned
For the Pancakes
50g/2oz Plain Flour
A pinch of Salt
1 Egg
150ml/5fl.oz. Milk
Vegetable Oil for frying



1. Place the maple syrup and orange juice in a frying pan which is large enough to take all the fruit in one layer and heat to simmering point over a medium heat, stirring to blend well.

2. Add the chopped stem ginger, mix well and cook for 1 minute before adding the apricots, cut sides up, and cook for 3-4 minutes, spooning the liquid over the apricots from time to time.

3. Bring the apricot mixture to the boil, then boil for a 2-3 minutes to slightly reduce and thicken the liquid. Cover and keep warm whilst you make the pancakes. 4. Place the flour, salt, milk and egg in a large bowl or jug and whisk until smooth and lump free. Transfer to a measuring jug

5. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a frying pan until very hot, then pour most of it into a heatproof container, leaving just enough oil to coat the pan.

6. Pour in a little of the batter, tilting the pan to evenly cover the base with a thin layer. Fry over a moderate heat until the underside is golden. This will only take 1-2 minutes.

7. Using a palette knife, loosen the edges turn the pancake over and cook the other side for about 30 seconds until golden.

8. Remove to a plate, cover with foil and place in a warm oven whilst you cook the remaining pancakes in the same way. Interleave each pancake with greaseproof or parchment paper so they don’t stick together.
