Mandarin and currant pancakes recipe for brunch

Mandarin currant pancakes

INGREDIENTS
3 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 teaspoons cream of tartar
2 tablespoons sugar
Pinch ground nutmeg
2 teaspoons finely grated mandarin zest
½ cup currants
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups milk or buttermilk
50g butter
2-3 fresh mandarins, peeled
extra butter for cooking


DIRECTIONS
Sift flour, baking soda and cream of tartar into a mixing bowl. Stir in  the sugar, nutmeg, mandarin zest and currants.

Combine egg and milk. Melt butter and stir into egg and milk mix.

Add this to dry ingredients and mix to a smooth batter consistency. Add extra milk or buttermilk if necessary. Leave mix to rest for 10 minutes.

Heat a heavy based frying pan on a medium to hot heat. Grease pan with a little butter, wiping away excess so that it doesn’t burn.

Arrange 4-5 wedges of mandarin on the frying pan, and quickly pour about ¼ cup of the pancake mix over the mandarins.  Cook for 1 minute until bubbles appear, turn and cook the other side for 1 ½ minutes until pancake is firm. Repeat with remaining mandarin segments and batter until all made. Wrap cooked pancakes in clean dry tea towels, and keep warm until serving.

Serve warm with butter, crème fraiche and maple syrup. Makes about 16.

NZ MANDARINS

We reckon the wee Mandarin is possibly the humble champion of the citrus family.

Famed for its easy peel skin, no pips, and its sweet hint of honey - Satsuma mandarins are a regular daily fixture in Kiwi lunchboxes. Loved by kids and adults alike.

Just two of these snack sized fruit provide 35% of your recommended daily allowance of vitamin C! Plus a good helping of vitamin A, iron, fibre and calcium - awesome for boosting our winter wellness reserves.

We reckon they’re best enjoyed as is, but they work well in a variety of dishes. Think mandarin quinoa kale bowls, mandarin chicken salad, mandarin ice cream, sticky mandarin date cake, citrus vinaigrettes…
