Cheddar Pancakes with Maple Baked Figs

Cheddar Pancakes with Figs

It’s been a while since there’s been a breakfast dish on this here blog so it seemed the perfect time for these Cheddar Pancakes with Maple Baked Figs. The minute September arrived my feed went from posicles and no bake dishes to apple and pumpkin everything…but over here there has been a lot of Figs consumed. Savory pancakes aren’t usually a thing in my house, but figs work better with cheddar pancakes than a plain old standard one.

Growing up my pop had planted a bunch of fruit trees in the early years of him and my nana living in their house and there was this gloriously large fig tree that only my mum and I would gravitate towards when they came into season, meaning we had our share of the produce. We would usually depart with a bag full of fresh figs and a belly full of them as well.

Pancakes with Baked Figs

I’m not sure about you, but Figs and Cheese are a match made in heaven and these pancakes are only ever so subtlely cheesy which means if you want to take the flavor up a notch you just add more, but the flavors go well together which feels appropriate for these shortening days and plump ripe figs are only roasted long enough to soften and not lose their shape.

Fresh and dried figs are still eaten as real treats in my house because they remind me of my childhood and are the kind of fruit that are seriously undderrated. They are the perfect snack and are not often made like in today’s post so if you appreciate them just as much, I would love to hear your thoughts on this dish?

Cheddar Pancakes with Maple Baked Figs Notes

As fresh figs are naturally very soft and sweet enough, the maple syrup is minimal when baking and these aren’t in the oven long so as to retain their shape, if you prefer them sweeter and softer than leave in the oven for a further 5 minutes.

Roasted Plums or any other summer stone fruit would be lovely with the cheddar pancakes, though you’d need to cut them smaller and roast for minimum 15 minutes to really soften due to them having a firmer flesh then figs.

Recipe by Roamingtaste
Serves 2

Ingredients:
Cheddar Pancakes
3 eggs
2/3 cup milk
2 tablespoons superfine/caster sugar
1 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, finely grated
Maple Roasted Figs
6 figs
1/4 cup maple syrup
More maple syrup to serve

Directions:
Place the eggs, milk, sugar, flour, baking powder and soda into a bowl and whisk to combine.

Add the grated cheddar and stir through until combined.

Set aside for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 200C/400F and carefully slice your figs into quarters, but ensuring not to slice all the way through the base so they hold together.

Place into your baking dish and drizzle over the maple syrup.

Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, removing once soft and fragrent, but allowing to cool to warm before serving.

Heat a frying pan on medium and melt a teaspoon of butter therein until it’s bubbling, rotate the frying pan to coat the full base with a layer of butter and then pour a soup ladleful about 2/3 full into the pan.

Cook until it is bubbling, aproximately 2 minutes before flipping to cook for a further minute until browned.

Continue with the remaining pancake batter until cooked.

Serve a stack of the pancakes with one or two figs on top and drizzle some maple syrup over.

Serve immediately.

    Welcome to Roamingtaste

    Hey there and welcome! Created in 2012 and as the name suggests this website was created to capture some of the foreign dishes I had discovered on my travels at a time when I needed to stay still for a while.

     

    You will likely find dishes you might not have heard of or eaten on your own adventures and most require ingredients you likely already have and are unfussy because foreign food doesn't need to be complicated.
