Ingredients

1 bag of carrots
50g of Moose Maple Butter
Salt and pepper to season

Method

Preheat the oven to 160°C.

Add the Moose Maple Butter to a roasting tin and place in the oven until the butter has melted.

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.

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.

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!

500ml milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
