Moose Maple Butter Pancakes

Ingredients

200ml milk
2 eggs- yolks and whites separated
50ml maple syrup (plus extra for topping)
30g Moose Maple Butter melted (plus extra for topping)
200g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt

Method

Place a large heavy-bottomed frying pan or flat cast-iron griddle over a medium-high heat.

In a large jug, whisk together the milk, egg yolks, maple syrup and melted Moose Maple Butter.

In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites (either by hand or with an electric whisk) until white and fluffy.

In a large bowl or jug, weigh out your flour baking powder and salt.

Pour the jug of liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients and whisk gently until smooth and combined.

Gently stir the fluffy egg whites into the batter until smooth.

Using an ice cream scoop or large spoon, heap some batter into the preheated pan. 1 scoop/spoon is recommended for Scotch pancakes and 2 scoops/spoons for American-style pancakes.

Cook the pancakes for 1-2 minutes- you should see bubbles bursting on top of the pancakes and the edges should look dry.

Flip the pancakes (once and only once, and do not press down on them with your spatula!) and cook for a further 1-2 minutes.

Scoop the cooked pancakes out of the pan. Eat straight away or keep warm between the folds of a clean tea towel until ready to serve.

Top with maple syrup and a tasty dollop of Moose Maple Butter and enjoy!

1 pack of streaky bacon
Salt and pepper to season

Method

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Place the chicken in a large roasting tin and season the chicken with some salt and pepper.

Take 40g of Moose Maple Butter and rub it underneath the skin of the chicken.

Brush the remaining 40g of Moose Maple Butter over the bacon and chicken and place it back in the oven for an additional 15 minutes.

Moose Maple Butter Bacon Scones

Ingredients

250g self-raising flour
Tsp mustard powder and paprika
100g grated cheddar cheese (plus extra for sprinkling)
50g Moose Maple Butter (plus one tablespoon)
180ml milk
100g finely chopped bacon
1 beaten egg or a splash of milk to glaze

Method

Preheat the oven to 220°C.

Fry the chopped bacon on a medium heat for 10 minutes. Turn up the heat to high and fry the bacon for an additional 5-7 minutes until the bacon is really crispy. Once the bacon is crispy, stir through a tablespoon of Moose Maple Butter and leave to one side.

Place the flour and grated cheese into a large mixing bowl and stir with a knife to combine.

Meanwhile, melt the Moose Maple Butter and stir into the milk. Gradually pour the liquid into the flour and grated cheese and stir with a knife gently.

Finally, add the bacon and combine. Be careful not to over mix or the scones will be tough.

Sprinkle flour onto a clean surface and knead the mixture into a dough. Using your hands, flatten the dough into a thickness of approximately 3cm. Cut out circles with a round cutter.

Place the scones on a baking tray. Brush with a little egg or milk and top with a small amount of grated cheese. Bake for 20 minutes – do not open the oven door.

Remove the scones from the oven and enjoy them warm. Add extra Moose Maple Butter and crispy bacon for an extra tasty scone!

Moose Maple Butter Bread & Butter Pudding

Ingredients

Moose Maple Butter
5 thick slices of bread (or brioche for added richness)
50g sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Handful of sultanas (optional)
2 eggs
500ml milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Fresh double cream

Method

Preheat the oven to 190ºC

Slather Moose Maple Butter all over 5 thick slices of bread (or brioche for added richness) and tear it up (if the bread is dry – add more maple butter). Then arrange the pieces of bread in a greased baking dish.

Mix together 50g of sugar (you only need a little because of the natural sweetness in maple syrup!) with a teaspoon of cinnamon. Throw in some sultanas if you like. Sprinkle this over and in between the bread pieces.

Beat 2 eggs into 500ml of milk and add a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Pour over the bread in the tray and leave to absorb for 10 minutes. (It may seem like a lot of milk but it’s not!)

Bake for about 35 minutes or until the pudding is set and nice and crispy on top!

Serve with fresh double cream.
