If you're interested in trying out an ancient grain flour but a little unsure where to begin this is the recipe to try! With something as quick and simple as a pancake, the flavours of the grain really shine through and you don't have to wait long to taste the results! The flavour profile of khorasan is said to be buttery with a nutty taste, making it perfect for both a sweet or savoury pancake. We've opted for a sweet maple with butter-toasted hazelnuts but a ham and cheese would also be a winner here.

  • Pancakes

  • 110g of khorasan flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 275ml of milk
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • vegetable oil
  • Topping

  • 50g of butter
  • 1 handful of blanched hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • maple syrup, to serve
1
Place the eggs and milk in a jug and whisk to combine. Place the flour and salt in a large bowl and mix
2
Slowly pour the wet mixture into the dry, whisking as you go to form and nice smooth batter. Transfer the batter back to the jug
3
Place a large nonstick frying pan over a high heat and once smoking, add a drizzle of oil and swill around to coat the pan
4
Pour some batter into the centre of the pan, then tilt the pan so a thin layer of the batter coats the entire bottom of the pan
5
Cook for a minute or so; the edges of the pancake will start to curl away from the sides when it is ready to flip. Use a spatula to flip, or go for a toss if you’re feeling brave. Remember, the first pancake often sticks, so count this one as a practice
6
Place the pancakes on a plate and store in a low oven to keep warm if you’re not serving as you go. Repeat the process until all the batter is used up. You can add a little more oil here and there but shouldn’t need to in between each pancake
7
Whilst your pancakes are cooking, melt the butter in a small pan. Once bubbling, add the chopped nuts and cook in the foaming butter until golden and toasted. Don’t let the butter turn too dark or it will taste bitter
8
Serve up the pancakes with a spoonful of brown butter and toasted hazelnuts and finish with a generous helping of maple syrup
