Pumpkin pancakes with salted pecan butterscotch
Hiya! Today we will discuss about Pumpkin pancakes with salted pecan butterscotch Recipe


250g pumpkins or squash, peeled, deseeded and chopped into large chunks
2 eggs
3 tbsp light brown soft sugar
25g butter, melted, plus a little for cooking
125ml buttermilk (or use the same quantity of milk, with a squeeze of lemon juice)
200g plain flour
2½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
drizzle of flavourless oil, such as sunflower or groundnut, for frying
ice cream, to serve, or yogurt or crème fraîche
50g pecans, roughly chopped
50g butter
50g light brown soft sugar
1 tsp sea salt flakes
100ml double cream
Perfect pancakes

For perfectly round pancakes, transfer your batter to a piping bag and snip off a large opening. Squeeze the mixture straight into the pan. You can freeze the batter in the piping bag, but add an extra 1/2 tsp baking powder to the mix first. Defrost overnight in the fridge before cooking.


Put the pumpkin or squash in a large heatproof bowl, add 1 tbsp water, cover with cling film and microwave on High for 5-8 mins or until really soft – different types will take a varying amount of time. Drain the pumpkin well and cool completely. If you want to eat the pancakes for breakfast, this step is best done the night before.

Once cool, put the pumpkin in a food processer with the remaining pancake ingredients and add a good pinch of salt. Blend until everything is well combined to a smooth, thick batter (alternatively, mash the pumpkin well, then whisk in the remaining ingredients). Transfer to a jug or piping bag and set aside while you make the butterscotch sauce.

Toast the pecans in a saucepan for 1-2 mins until a shade darker. Tip out and set aside. Add the butter, sugar, salt and cream to the pan. Bring to a simmer, then bubble gently for a few mins until you have a shiny sauce. Stir in the pecans and set aside to cool a little.

Heat a knob of butter and a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan. Heat oven to 140C/120C fan/gas 1, to keep the pancakes warm while you cook them in batches – have a baking tray to hand. When the butter is foaming, swirl it around the pan, then pour tennis-ball-sized amounts of batter into the pan (see tip below) – they will spread a little as they cook, so leave some space between each pancake and don’t overcrowd the pan. Cook over a low-medium heat. Don’t touch the pancakes until you see a few bubbles appear on the surface – have a look underneath and, if the pancakes are golden, flip them over and cook for another 2 mins on the other side. Transfer the cooked pancakes to the baking tray and keep warm in the oven while you continue cooking.

Once cooked, pile the pancakes onto plates, top with ice cream, yogurt or crème fraîche, and pour over the salted pecan butterscotch sauce.

Remove the tin from the oven and pour in the batter mixture. Return to the oven and bake for 10 mins until puffed up and golden, then lower to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 and bake for a further 15 mins.

To make the gravy, put the onion chutney, balsamic vinegar and flour into a saucepan, stir well, then bubble for 1-2 mins over a medium heat.

Sweet chilli chicken

Sweet chilli chicken

To make the glaze, preheat the grill to high. Mix together the chilli sauce, honey and oil in a large bowl. Using a sharp knife make 3-4 slits across the skin side of each chicken breast. Season with salt and pepper then lift the skin on each breast and tuck under the crushed garlic. Now dip the underside of each chicken breast in the glaze until evenly coated. Reserve the rest of the glaze for later. To cook the chicken, put the chicken on the grill pan, glazed side up, and grill for 8 minutes until golden and sticky. Turn the chicken breasts over, brush with the remaining glaze, then cook for another 6-8 minutes until the chicken is firm and cooked through. Serve straight away with wedges of lime for squeezing over, if liked.

Garlic chicken with herbed potatoes

For the marinade, whisk the first five ingredients together, season with black pepper and a large pinch or two of sugar. Finely grate the zest of half a lemon and set aside, then squeeze the lemon juice from that half into the marinade. Put the chicken in a nonmetallic dish and spoon the marinade over. Halve the other lemon and add the three halves to the chicken, and marinate until ready to cook. (This can be done up to two hours ahead or overnight if that suits you better.) Just over an hour before you want to eat, preheat the oven to 200C/gas 6/fan 180C. Cut a thin slice off the top of the garlic (this makes it easier to squeeze it out later) and halve the potatoes or cut them into largish chunks, depending on their size. Drain most of the marinade into a roasting tin and add the potatoes and garlic, tossing to make sure that they are coated in the oil. Roast, uncovered, for about 20 minutes. Add the chicken, rosemary and lemon to the tin, scraping in any bits of marinade. Toss to mix, arrange the chicken skin-side up and season well with salt, then roast for another 40-45 minutes or until the potatoes are fully cooked, and the chicken is golden and crisp and the garlic is squashy. Mix the reserved lemon zest and parsley, scatter over the chicken and serve immediately with seasonal green vegetables or salad. The best way to eat the garlic is to squash it out of its skin with a knife and spread it onto the roasted potatoes and chicken.

Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Put the broccoli in a casserole dish, add 1 tbsp water and roast in the oven for 10 mins while you make the sauce.

Melt the butter in a small pan over a medium heat, add the flour and cook until it bubbles and thickens, take off the heat and whisk in a big splash of the milk. Return to the heat and slowly add the rest of the milk. Stir in the mustard and cheese and season well.

Remove the broccoli from the oven, add the chunks of toast to the dish, mixing them up with the broccoli. Pour the cheese sauce over. Grate the parmesan over the top and put back in the oven for 10 mins, turning on the grill for the last 3 mins, until the top is golden and the dish is bubbling. Leave to sit for 5 mins before serving.

Chicken alfredo

Heat the olive oil in a non-stick frying pan over a medium high heat. Add the chicken thighs and fry for around 10 mins, turning half way, until they are golden brown and cooked through. Set aside to cool a little, then use two forks to shred.

Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and add the pasta, cook for 1 minute less that package instructions. Whilst the pasta is cooking, add the butter to the frying pan over a medium heat, scraping the bottom a little to get any of the browned bits. Tip in the cream along with the nutmeg and bring to a simmer. Add the chicken back to the pan.

Once the pasta is cooked, use tongs to transfer the pasta straight from the water into the frying pan with the cream mixture. Sprinkle most of the parmesan over and use the tongs to toss it all together, adding a splash of the pasta water if it looks a little stiff. Season well, then tip into bowls. Top with the remaining parmesan, a scattering of parsley, and black pepper.
