INGREDIENTS

FOR THE FETTUCCINI

  • 300ml full fat milk
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 125g plain flour
  • 25g butter, melted
  • Extra melted butter or vegetable oil for frying

FOR THE ORANGE SAUCE

  • 4 tbsp Lyle's Golden Syrup
  • Zest of ½ orange
  • ½ teaspoon corn flour
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 3-4 tbsp Grand Marnier (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

Fry up some sweet fettuccini - Lyle's style

  1. Whisk milk and eggs together in a jug. Put the flour into a large bowl, and make a hollow in the centre -– then gradually pour the milk mixture into the centre, whisking as you do it. Continue until you have a smooth batter, then whisk in the melted butter. [You can also just put all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and whizz until smooth.]
  2. Now for the pancakes -– use a non-stick 18cm/7inch pan for best results. Heat the pan on medium until there is a slight haze coming from it. Brush it with butter or oil, then pour in about 70ml of the batter. Tilt so the batter evenly covers the bottom of the pan.
  3. Cook for about a minute or until the liquid batter has set and the pancake is gorgeously golden. Loosen the edges of the pancake with a spatula and give a little shake -– it should come loose and move in the pan. Flip the pancake, cook for a further minute, then turn out onto a plate. Prepare the rest of the batter the same way to make more pancakes.
  4. Cut your pancakes into 1cm thick strips to create lovely homemade fettuccini.
  5. Ready for the sauce? Boil together the orange juice, lemon juice, orange zest and Lyle's Golden Syrup and reduce by a third. If your sauce is slightly too thin, blend the cornflour with a drop of water and whisk into the sauce for a great ‘'coating'’ consistency.
  6. Using Grand Marnier? Add it now…...
  7. Reheat your fettuccini for a minute in the microwave and divide between four bowls. Spoon over the orange sauce and serve with vanilla ice cream.
