Preparation Time 10 minutes
Cooking Time 20 minutes
150g (1 cup) self-raising flour
375ml (1 1/2 cups) buttermilk
1 egg, lightly whisked
1 medium pink lady apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
250g mixed fresh berries, to serve
100g butter, softened
2 tsp mixed spice
2 tsp finely grated lemon rind
1. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre. Whisk the buttermilk and egg together in a jug. Pour the buttermilk mixture into the well and whisk to make a smooth batter.
2. Melt half the butter in a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat until foaming. Spoon 80ml (1/3 cup) of the batter into the pan and top with apple slices. Cook for 1 minute or until bubbles appear on the surface and the pancake is golden underneath. Turn and cook for a further minute or until golden. Repeat with remaining batter and apple slices, greasing pan with butter before each batch. (To freeze, see below.)
3. To make lemon-spiced butter: combine the butter, mixed spice and lemon rind in a small bowl. (To freeze, see below.)
4. To serve: Spread pancakes with lemon-spiced butter and arrange in a stack. Top with berries and serve immediately.
To freeze pancakes (up to 3 months): Place pancakes between sheets of non-stick baking paper. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in an airtight container. Label, date and freeze.
