    • 25g (1oz) caster sugar
    • 15g (½ oz) butter
    • Icing sugar, to serve (optional)
    • 30ml (2tbsp) raspberry conserve
    • 15ml (1tbsp) kirsch or cherry syrup

    • 75g (3oz) raspberries

    Method

    • Preheat grill to hot.

    • Beat egg yolks with milk or cream until thick.

    • Whisk egg whites until stiff. Gently fold yolks into whites.

    • Melt butter over low heat, spoon in egg mixture and spread evenly over the pan with a spatula. Cook over moderate heat until the underside is set and golden.

    • Meanwhile, make the filling. Heat the raspberry conserve with the kirsch or cherry syrup. Add the cherries, warm through then add raspberries.

    • Place the omelette under the grill to cook the top slightly. Spread with filling, then tip onto a warmed plate, folding it over as you do so.

    • Dredge with icing sugar, if desired, and serve.
