Fluffy almond pancakes with blueberry ripple yogurt

Hiya! Today we will discuss about Fluffy almond pancakes with blueberry ripple yogurt


300g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp vanilla extract
400-450ml Alpro almond drink, unsweetened
1 tbsp vegetable oil, for cooking
250g blueberries
400g Alpro Simply plain yogurt alternative


Put the blueberries in a small pan with 1 tbsp water and simmer over a low heat for 5-8 mins until the berries burst. Increase the heat a little and cook for another 3-4 mins until it’s a jam-like consistency, then transfer to a bowl and leave to cool.

Stir the flour and baking powder together in a large bowl with a big pinch of salt, then whisk in the vanilla and almond milk until it forms a smooth, thick batter.

Heat a little of the oil in a non-stick pan and spoon ½ a ladleful of the pancake mix into the pan. Fry for 4 mins until the edges are set, then flip and fry for another 2-3 mins until both sides are golden. Repeat with a little more oil and batter, until all the pancakes are cooked and you have 12 small-medium sized pancakes. Keep warm in a low oven while you cook the remaining batter, if you like.

Briefly fold half of the blueberry compote through the yogurt to give it a ripple effect. Layer the pancakes with the remaining compote, then add a generous dollop of yogurt to serve.

charred spring onions with romesco

Charred spring onions & romesco

Put the nuts in the bowl of a food processor, saving a handful to serve. Add the garlic, then blitz until you have coarse crumbs. Add the red peppers and tomato purée and blitz again to a rough paste. Add the sourdough and a glug of the oil to loosen the mixture, then blitz once more until you have a slightly smoother paste. Pour the sauce into a mixing bowl and add the cayenne pepper, paprika and some seasoning. Pour in the rest of the olive oil, stirring to incorporate it. Add the vinegar, 1 tsp at a time, until the sauce has the right acidity – it should make you salivate! For the spring onions, brush them with olive oil, season with salt and griddle over a high heat, turning occasionally, until softening at the core and charred all over. Serve the spring onions with the sauce and a scattering of almonds.

Rack of lamb with lentils & Jack-by-the-hedge sauce

Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the carrot, onion, celery, thyme and bay leaf, and cook over a medium heat for 10 mins to soften. Add the lentils and fry gently for 1-2 mins. Add the stock, bring to the boil and cook, uncovered, for 20-25 mins until the lentils are cooked through and most of the stock has been absorbed. Meanwhile, cook the lamb. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Place the lamb in a roasting tin, season well and roast for 15-20 mins for rare to medium, 25 mins for well done. Leave to rest for 5 mins before carving into chops. While the lamb is resting, make the sauce. Put the Jack-by-the-hedge in a food processor and blitz while slowly trickling in the oil until it forms a pesto consistency. Add the lemon juice to taste, then season. Stir the butter, mustard and any juices from the lamb into the lentils and season to taste. Divide the lentils between warmed plates, top with the chops and drizzle with the sauce.

Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Crumble in the mince and stir to coat the meat in the hot oil. Cook the mince for 15 mins until you are left with browned, toasted mince and the fat from the meat. Stir the vegetables in with the mince and cook for 10 mins until they start to turn brown. Sprinkle over the flour and cook for a further 2 mins. Stir in the herbs, ketchup and tomato purée, and splash in the Worcestershire sauce. Pour in the ale, bubble for a minute, then gradually stir in the stock. Leave everything to simmer gently for 1 hr until you have a tender mince in a rich gravy.

Use a slotted spoon to lift the mince and vegetables into a large baking dish, leaving the residual gravy in the pan. Drain the gravy through a sieve into another saucepan, then tip what remains in the sieve back into the baking dish. Leave the mince to cool, then put in the fridge (or, better still, the freezer if you have room) for at least 1 hr until the fat from the mince solidifies. This part can be made up to two days ahead.

While the meat sauce is cooling, make the cheesy potato topping. Tip the potatoes, whole and in their skins, into a large pan of salted water. Bring the pan to the boil and simmer for 15 mins until the potatoes are cooked all the way through. Drain off the water and leave until the potatoes are just cool enough to handle. Meanwhile, boil the milk, butter and mustard powder together in a large saucepan. Peel the cooked potatoes by rubbing their skins off with a tea towel. Mash or pass the potatoes through a ricer into the hot milk and butter, stir through the cheese and season with salt and pepper.

When the meat sauce has set, top with the mash. Start from the outside and use a spatula to scrape the mash against the side of the dish, then spread it over the middle of the dish. Using a fork, make lines across the topping. Can be frozen for up to 6 months.

Heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Put the pie on a large baking tray to catch any drips and bake for 30-35 mins until golden. Leave it to rest for at least 10 mins while you heat up the extra gravy. Serve the pie at the table with green vegetables and the jug of extra gravy for pouring over.
