Autumn's most popular recipes 2017

As the weather started to cool down, your stoves were heating up with spicy curries, hearty breakfast dishes and comforting bowls of pasta. You balanced things out nicely with some greens but dessert wasn't entirely forgotten. Counting down from 30, here are your 2017 autumn favourites.

Pancakes with quark and peaches


Peaches and maple syrup are a great combination, although you can use whatever fruit is best on the day. You can make the batter ahead; just add the whisked eggwhite at the last minute.

You'll need

175 gm self-raising flour, sieved 300 ml buttermilk 2 eggs, separated 2 tbsp vegetable oil 20 gm butter, diced 6 peaches, halved Caster sugar, for dusting 200 gm quark (see note) Maple syrup, to serve

Method

  • 01
  • For pancake batter, combine flour and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Lightly whisk buttermilk and yolks in a jug to combine, then add to flour and whisk until smooth. Whisk eggwhite in a separate bowl until soft peaks form, then fold into batter.
  • 02
  • Heat half the oil and half the butter in a non-stick frying pan to medium-high heat until butter foams. Add 1/3 cup of batter at a time and cook until bubbles appear (2-3 minutes). Flip and cook until pancake is golden and cooked through (2-3 minutes). Keep warm and repeat with remaining oil, butter and batter.
  • 03
  • Preheat a grill to high. Place peaches cut-side up on a baking tray lined with foil. Scatter with sugar and grill until golden and bubbling (2-3 minutes).
  • 04
  • Serve pancakes warm with peaches, quark and maple syrup.

Note Quark is a soft cheese available from select delicatessens and supermarkets. If it's unavailable substitute ricotta or double cream.
