Gordon Ramsay’s Buttermilk Pancakes with Strawberries and White Chocolate Sauce

Serves 4

Ingredients

100g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of fine sea salt
150ml buttermilk
2 large eggs, beaten
2 large egg whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
Groundnut oil, for frying
400g strawberries, hulled and quartered

For the white chocolate sauce

150ml double cream
100g white chocolate
2-3 tbsp Baileys (optional)

Method

1 Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl and make a well in the middle. Whisk together the buttermilk and 50ml water. Pour the beaten eggs, vanilla extract and a good splash of the buttermilk mixture into the well.

2 Gradually incorporate the flour, whisking from the middle and working outwards until you have a thick, smooth paste. Add the rest of the buttermilk mixture, a little at a time, whisking thoroughly between each addition, until you have a lump-free batter. Whisk the egg whites to medium-stiff peaks in a clean bowl, then fold in.

3 Heat a large, heavy-based frying pan and add a couple of teaspoons of groundnut oil. Wipe the pan with kitchen paper to grease the base evenly with oil. Pour a small ladle of batter into the pan and fry for 1 minute until golden brown underneath. Flip it over and cook for 45-60 seconds on the other side. Continue with the rest of the batter, frying in batches of 2-3. Keep the pancakes warm in a low oven.

4 For the white chocolate sauce, heat the cream in a small pan until almost boiling. Break the chocolate into small pieces in a heatproof bowl, then pour over the hot cream. Stir until the chocolate has melted and add Baileys to taste.

5 Divide the pancakes between warmed plates with a pile of strawberries on top. Drizzle generously with the white chocolate sauce and serve immediately.

Basic Pancake Recipe - Makes about 8 pancakes

Ingredients:

  • 4oz (100g) plain flour.
  • Half a Pint (250ml) of milk.
  • 1 Standard Egg. (Size 2)
  • Pinch of Salt (half teaspoon)

Method:

  1. Sieve the flour and salt into a mixing bowl.
    Make a small hollow in the center of the mixture and drop in the egg (not the shell).

    Continue to mix well until bubbles become visible in the mixture.
  3. Gradually pour in the remaining milk while continuing to mix.
  4. Pour batter into a jug.
  5. Heat the frying pan, and place a small piece of butter/margarine in the Center. Allow this to melt and spread over the pan.
  6. Get the pan nice & hot and then pour in some of the batter - approx 30ml or 2 tablespoons, or enough to thinly cover the bottom of the pan. (tilt the pan to help the batter spread evenly)

  8. Toss / flip (with a knife if you need) the pancake
  9. Cook the other side until nicely golden brown.

It is Pancake day tomorrow,

so, needless to say, expect many a pancake recipe on here.

My personal favourite is banana, pecan and maple syrup pancakes. Anything syrupy, sticky, and sweet and i’m happy.
