Serves: 4

 What You’ll Need:

  • 125g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

For the walnut butter:

  • 50g butter, softened

What To Do:

  • To make the walnut butter, whisk the butter and maple syrup together until pale, stir in the walnuts and set aside.

Cooks tip

Try making the pancakes a little in advance and just reheat gently in the oven before serving. Honey works just as well as maple syrup or serve with fresh berries or even bacon.
