|Getting rather tired of these plates.|
I can't really give you a recipe for toasted nuts. Just chop them up and roast them on a tray in a medium oven for no more than 7 minutes or they'll burn.
The caramel sauce was a bit of a guess because I substituted brown sugar in for white and followed a recipe whose instructions were based on the sugar changing colour... oops. I managed to get it right (and super tasty) somehow! The pancake recipe, however, I will give you :)
Fluffy Pancakes (fed ten of us)
405 g plain flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
6 tablespoons of sugar, caster is best
3 beaten eggs
6 tablespoons butter, melted
390 ml semi-skimmed milk
Weigh out the dry ingredients and sieve into a large mixing bowl. Put the milk, eggs and melted butter into another bowl and whisk together. Make a hollow in the middle of the flour mixture and pour in the wet ingredients all at once and whisk until you have a smooth, thick batter.
Put a non-stick frying pan on a medium heat and melt some butter. Ladle your mixture into the pan, it won't spread out much so just let size be your guide. Once the little pancake is solid enough to flip, flip it. (This will take about 2 minutes, and the top will have bubbles of air coming through as it rises.)
