When gingerbread and plums meet - here’s a delicious breakfast recipe for ginger spiced plum pancakes
  • 4 ripe Montague Tree plums, stones removed and sliced into wedges
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 ¼ cup of self raising flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp mixed spice
  • Pinch salt
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup of full fat milk
  • 1 tbsp butter for cooking
  • Serve with extra maple syrup and plain Greek yoghurt if desired.
  1. To make the glazed plums, melt the butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add the sugar, cinnamon and plums and stir gently to ensure the plums are coated with the glaze. Gently cook for 2 – 3 minutes then, remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine self raising flour, baking powder, spices, salt and brown sugar.
  3. In a separate bowl combine the milk and egg and whisk gently. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture gradually and whisk gently until smooth.
  4. Heat butter in a large non stick pan over medium heat and place a ladle of batter into the pan. Cook the pancake for 1- 2 minutes each side, flip when bubbles begin to surface. Take off heat and place on covered plate to keep warm. Continue until all batter is used up (should make approximately 6 – 8 pancakes depending on size.)
  5. Serve immediately in a stack with glazed fruit and extra maple syrup and yoghurt if desired.
