If you love cooking, or even just enjoy food for food's sake, you should visit Henrie's Hotch Potch, the Highlife regular recipe column for a truly amazing website: www.iafrica.com.

Henrie GeyserA food guru if ever there was, Henrie Geyser does not supply just any old kind of recipe, randomly pinched from the yellowing pages of Your Average Cookbook. Rather, the wondrous menus that grace the pages of Henrie's Hotch Potch each week have come to exist through endless experimenting and tasting, night after night of gleeful peeling, chopping, stirring, stuffing, straining, baking, grilling, frying and braaiing - wooden spoon in one hand, glass of wine in the other.

We are fortunate enough to have been given permission to reproduce a few of Henrie's recipes, just so that we can get a taste! To visit Henrie at the iAfrica web site where he updates his column every Friday with a full menu of Starter, Main Course and Dessert - click here

Ingredients

110g plain flour
120g wholemeal flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 cups low-fat milk
1 egg
40g butter, melted
80g chopped walnuts
1 egg white
½ cup golden syrup, warmed

For the orange butter:
150g soft butter
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
2 tablespoons orange juice

Method
  • To prepare the butter, combine all three ingredients in a small bowl and mix very well.
  • To prepare the pancakes, sift flours, sugar, baking powder and ½ teaspoon salt in a bowl. In another bowl mix milk, egg and butter together. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and gradually pour in the milk mixture, whisk until smooth and add the walnuts. Whisk egg white until it forms firm peaks and fold into batter.
  • Heat lightly oiled non-stick pan over medium heat and pour 1/4 cupful of the batter into frying pan and cook for about 3 minutes, then turn and cook other side until golden. Keep warm in oven and repeat until all the mixture has been used.
  • Serve pancakes with orange butter and warm syrup.
