Spinach and Mushroom Pancakes

Calories per serving: 355

Serves: 4

Pancake Batter:

15g (1/2oz) Kerrygold block butter, now softer

150g (5oz) plain flour

Pinch of salt

200ml (7fl oz) milk

2 eggs

2 tablespoons water

Filling:

25g (1oz) Kerrygold block butter, now softer

1 onion, finely chopped

400g (14oz) baby spinach

225g (8oz) mushrooms, sliced

100ml (4fl oz) single cream

1 teaspoon freshly chopped parsley

Squeeze of lemon juice

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Chopped fresh chives, to garnish (optional)

Method:

1. For the pancake batter, melt the Kerrygold butter over a low heat. Put the flour, salt, milk, eggs and water into a mixing bowl and beat together with a hand whisk to make a smooth batter. Whisk in the melted Kerrygold butter and leave to rest for 20-30 minutes.

2. For the filling, melt the Kerrygold butter in a heavy saucepan until it foams. Add the onion, then cover and sweat over a gentle heat for 5-10 minutes, until soft but not coloured.

3. Meanwhile, cook the spinach in a tiny amount of water in a large lidded saucepan, until the leaves wilt (about 3-4 minutes). Drain, then squeeze out the excess liquid with the back of a spoon.

4. Add the mushrooms to the onion and cook for a few more minutes, then stir in the cream, parsley and spinach. Season with lemon juice, salt and pepper.

5. Cook ladlefuls of the pancake batter in a non-stick frying pan until set on the surface. Turn over to cook the other side. Use to make 4 large or 8 small pancakes.

6. Lay the pancakes on warm plates and spoon the filling in the middle. Serve, sprinkled with chopped chives.

Tip: Use the filling as a sauce for pasta - simply stir it though your favourite cooked pasta shapes.
