Recipe of the Month

October – Pumpkin Pancakes

Our Catering team would love you to have a go at making our yummy Recipe of the Month.


  • 250g pumpkin or squash, peeled, de-seeded and chopped into large chunks
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tbsp light brown soft sugar
  • 25g butter, melted, plus a little for cooking
  • 125ml buttermilk (or use the same quantity of milk, with a squeeze of lemon juice)
  • 200g plain flour
  • 2½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Drizzle of flavourless oil, such as sunflower or groundnut, for frying


  • Put the pumpkin or squash in a large heatproof bowl, add 1 tbsp water, cover with cling film and microwave on High for 5-8 mins or until really soft
  • Drain the pumpkin well and cool completely
  • Once cool, put the pumpkin in a food processor with the remaining pancake ingredients and add a good pinch of salt
  • Blend until everything is well combined to a smooth, thick batter
  • Heat a knob of butter and a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan
  • When the butter is foaming, swirl it around the pan, then pour appropriate sized amounts of batter into the pan
  • Cook over a low-medium heat
  • Don’t touch the pancakes until you see a few bubbles appear on the surface – have a look underneath and, if the pancakes are golden, flip them over and cook for another 2 mins on the other side
  • Once cooked, pile the pancakes onto plates, top with ice cream, yogurt or your favourite topping. Enjoy!
