Prep Time : 0:20 | Cook Time : 0:45 | Total Time : 1:05 | Serving : 4 person.


  • 255g (1 3/4 cups) self-raising flour

  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

  • 110g (1/2 cup) caster sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 375ml (1 1/2 cups) buttermilk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 orange, zested

  • 60g butter, melted,

  • 100g butter, chopped

  • 75g (1 cup) shredded coconut

Orange maple plums

  • 8 plums, halved, stoned

  • 110g (1/2 cup) caster sugar

  • 1 orange, zested, juiced

  • 125ml (1/2 cup) maple syrup


  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180C. To make orange maple plums, line a small oven tray with baking paper, extending paper slightly up sides of tray. Top with plums, flesh-side up. Scatter with sugar and orange zest, then drizzle with orange juice. Bake for 15 minutes or until plums are tender. Cut plums into quarters and set aside. Pour cooking juices into a small jug and combine with maple syrup.

  • Step 2

    Reduce oven to 160C. To make pancakes, line an oven tray with baking paper. Sift flour, bicarbonate of soda, sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt into a bowl. Place eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, orange zest and 60g melted butter in a second bowl and whisk to combine. Pour wet mixture onto dry mixture and whisk until smooth. (Once wet and dry mixtures are combined, the raising agents are immediately activated, so cook pancakes straight away.)

  • Step 3

    Melt 10g butter in a non-stick frying pan over low–medium heat. Pour slightly less than 1/3 cup batter into pan, then, using the back of a spoon, spread to a 12cm round.

  • Step 4

    Cook for 2 minutes or until bubbles appear on surface. Scatter over 1 tablespoon coconut. Using a spatula, flip and cook for a further 30 seconds or until lightly browned underneath. Transfer to oven tray and keep warm in oven. Wipe pan clean. Repeat with remaining butter, batter and coconut. Makes 10 pancakes.

  • Step 5

    Stack 2–3 pancakes on each plate, top with plums, then drizzle with orange maple syrup to serve.
