Skill level: Easy peasy
Costs: Cheap as chips
If you're a fan of the Queen of Pudding, you're certainly going to love Queen of Pancakes - a pancake twist on this classic! Top your pancakes with a luxurious berry mixture and creamy, gooey meringue. Use a blow torch to give your meringue a professional finish. Serve these delicious pancakes as soon as you've assembled them. As if you'd want to wait?!
Once you've made up your batch of pancakes, pop them on an ovenproof plate and leave in the oven on a very low heat so they stay warm whilst you prepare the fruit and meringue
- Make up your batch of pancakes.
- Heat the berries and sugar with ½ tbsp water in a small saucepan, cover with a lid, heat gently for around 8 minutes or until the berries just start to pop then set aside to cool slightly.
- Put the egg whites into a bowl. With an electric hand whisk, beat until soft peaks form. Now add the sugar, a little at a time, whisking until stiff and glossy. Whisk in the cornflour.
- Divide the berry mixture between the pancakes, top with a few dollops of the meringue then either cook under a medium hot grill for a few minutes to brown, or brown with a blow torch.
