    1. For the honey butter, beat the butter with the honey and spoon onto a large piece of cling film. Squeeze into a sausage shape, then wrap tightly and chill until ready to use. Will keep in the fridge for up to a month.

    2. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and a small pinch of salt into a bowl, then stir through the sugar and make a well in the centre. Beat together the egg and milk, then gradually pour into the well, stirring slowly, to avoid creating lumps. Stir in the apricots.

    3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a low heat and add a little oil. Drop in 4 tablespoonfuls of batter and cook for 1 min or until the surface of each pancake is covered in bubbles. Flip with a palette knife or fish slice, then cook for a further min. Repeat with the remaining batter. Serve warm or leave to cool, then toast and spread with the honey butter to serve

    You have to try these! so easy and perfect for a lazy Sunday morning! I use this recipe all the time and have made loads of different versions of it by swapping the apricots for cranberries or choc chips, also we often use syrup or honey instead of the honey butter. Great recipe!

    Hi Claire, I actually doubled the recipe for 4 hungry people so I would say it serves 2-3!

    How many people does this serve? It can't be 406 calories per person for 12-16 people?!
