Fluffy date pancakes
7th January, 2021

Fluffy date pancakes

If you're feeling like getting creative with your brunch at home, have a go at recreating our fluffy Date Pancakes! Here's the recipe from our chef:

Ingredients:

  • 5 x tsp salt
  • 5 x tsp baking powder
  • 625g x plain flour
  • 6 x tbsp caster sugar
  • 5 x whole eggs
  • 5 x tsp vanilla paste
  • 675ml x whole milk
  • 40g x melted butter
  • 200g x softened dates (half for the pancakes and half for the puree)

For the toffee sauce:

  • 200g x dark brown sugar
  • 200g x heavy double cream
  • 100g x unsalted butter

Method:

Dates:

  • Boil the dry dates in water until soft but still holding their shape, roughly 10 minutes.
  • Strain the dates keeping the liquid for the date puree
  • Once cool, mix your desired number of soft dates into the pancake batter

Batter:

  • Mix the dry ingredients together, then add milk and whisk until smooth
  • Add eggs and whisk again
  • Lastly, add the melted butter

Toffee sauce:

  • Add the dark brown sugar, heavy double cream and unsalted butter into a saucepan and bring to boil stirring constantly
  • Boil until smooth with no grains of sugar visible
  • Once the sauce is ready and still warm, stir in some water
  • This should end up being a beige-cream colour

Date puree:

  • Add the remaining dates which were boiled off into a food processor and blitz adding the liquid from the dates little by little until your desired consistency (this step is easier when still warm)
  • The puree will thicken up when cooled down

Enjoy!
