Fluffy vanilla pancakes with sliced white nectarines and honey drizzle

*Serves 4


  1. 300g self-raising flour

  2. 4 eggs, separated

  3. 200ml milk

  4. 1 tsp vanilla extract

  5. 100ml runny honey

  6. Nectarines


  1. Start off by slicing the nectarines then pop them on a plate until later.

  2.  Place the flour in a bowl then whisk in the egg yolks, honey, vanilla extract and milk. Don't be alarmed if the mix looks stiff, it will be fine. Whisk until smooth and then set aside.

  3.  Whisk the whites in a separate bowl until stiff and carefully fold into the batter.

  4. Heat a large frying pan to medium heat and add a splash of vegetable oil. Then carefully drop in four large tablespoons of the mixture, keeping as separate as possible.

  5. Cook for a couple of minutes, until starting to turn golden at the edges and then flip over and cook until puffed up.

  6. Pile onto a plate, with the nectarines on the side, a dollop of yoghurt and a drizzle of honey. Finish with a sprinkling of nuts (optional).
