Pumpkin Buttermilk Pancakes with Caramelised Oranges, Pistachio 

Nothing says lazy Sunday morning like a stack of fresh pancakes, slippers on and fresh coffee at the ready. You cannot go wrong. Have a look at what you have in the cupboard and feel free to add to the list of toppings. You’ve made the pancakes so your rules, anything goes! I love having mini bowls of chopped hazelnuts, dried cranberries and chocolate chips for us all to get stuck in with. 

[Makes 8 – 10 pancakes] 


200g self-raising flour 

1½ tsp baking powder 

1 tbsp golden castor sugar 

3 large eggs 

30g melted butter 

100ml milk 

100ml pumpkin puree  

1 orange 

3 tbsp pistachio nuts 

Vanilla Donuts with Pumpkin Cream 

For me, these are a the perfect Sunday afternoon bake. I always make sure that I have plenty of time when making donuts so that I don’t rush the recipe. I put some great tunes on and have a large pot of tea at the ready. Making donuts is definitely worth it and once you have done it one you’ll love the baking and eating! Perfect for feeding a crowd after a long winter walk.

½ sachet of fast action dried yeast 

50g golden castor sugar 

2 egg yolks 

150ml warmed milk 

50g melted butter
