Watch how to make Burger pancakes
- Basic pancake batter (replace the milk with buttermilk and flour with self-raising flour for a thicker pancake):
- Desiccated coconut
- Large soft double chocolate chip cookies
- Green, yellow and red food colouring
- Sesame seeds
- Icing sugar
- Milk chocolate, melted
Make up a batch of basic pancakes and allow to cool slightly. We made American-style pancakes for this recipe by replacing the milk with buttermilk and the plain flour with self-raising.
Colour the coconut with green food colouring to resemble lettuce.
Mix the red and yellow food colourings with two separate batches of icing sugar to make the ketchup and mustard sauces.
Spread the melted chocolate onto the pancake and place one or two cookies on top.
Drizzle over the red and yellow icing and sprinkle with the coconut.
Spread another pancake with the melted chocolate and place on top and then sprinkle with sesame seeds.
