Serves 4 (or just 2 if greedy)
Ingredients:
125g plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp ground cardamom
200ml buttermilk
2 large eggs, separated
1 blood orange, zested
1 tbsp blood orange juice
50g butter melted
1 tbsp caster sugar
icing sugar, to dust

1. Combine the flour, baking powder, cardamom and a pinch of salt in a large bowl.
2. In a separate bowl, add the buttermilk, egg yolks, orange zest, juice and butter. Whisking to prevent any lumps, pour the wet ingredients into the dry to form the batter.
3. In a third clean, dry bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form, then add the caster sugar, whisking to combine, and then fold this into the batter mixture.
4. Butter your frying pan and place on a medium-high heat. Spooning 1tbsp of the batter onto the pan in batches of 4/5, allow to cook and until bubbles form and then turn, cooking for a further minute (or until golden).
5. Dust with icing sugar and serve hot. Enjoy!
