Combine the milk and eggs in a bowl with a whisk. Mix well.

Sift the flour and combine with milk and eggs.

Heat a frying pan and add a small amount of oil or butter.

Pour some of the mixture to coat the bottom and cook until some bubbles appear. Turn over your pancake and cook for another minute until cooked.

Put your pancake on a plate and repeat until all the mixture is gone.

Whilst waiting for your pancake to cook, remove your fuji fruit’s skin and stem and process in a blender until jam like.

Slice a banana for garnish.

Serve your pancakes with a generous amount of fuji fruit puree and top with banana.

Fuji Fruit Smoothie

Fuji FruitSmoothie

This smoothie is simply delicious. If you haven’t tried Fuji fruit before, this is a wonderful introduction to this fruit. It may look like a tomato but its surprisingly super sweet flesh will have you looking forward to seeing them come into season each year.


1 Ripe Fuji Fruit

1 Banana

½ tsp Ginger powder

½ tsp in Cinnamon powder

½ cup Plant based milk (I used soy)


Chop the top of the fuji fruit to remove the leafy end.

Use a spoon to scoop the flesh out and chop into rough pieces and put into the blender.

(If your fruit is too firm you can peel the skin off with a peeler)


Peel and chop your banana and add to the blender.

Pour in your milk and add the spices.

Turn on your blender until all ingredients are processed and combined.

Pour into a glass and drink immediately.
