How yummy!!

Serves 4
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Standing time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes


Pancakes:

  • 100 g (4 oz) plain flour
  • 15 g (1/2 oz) cocoa
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil plus extra for frying
  • 250 ml (8 fl oz) semi skimmed milk


Filling:

  • 170g carton fat free Greek yogurt
  • 142 g (41/2 oz) small carton readymade longlife custard
  • 4 teaspoons fresh chopped mint
  • 175 g (6 oz) raspberries
  • 225g (8 oz) strawberries, sliced
  • 50 g (2 oz) dark chocolate, optional



Method:

  1. To make the pancakes, sift the flour and cocoa into a bowl, add the egg and egg yolk, 1 tablespoon of the oil then gradually whisk in the milk until smooth. 
  2. Leave to stand for 15 minutes.

For the filling:

  1. Mix the yogurt, custard and chopped mint together. 
  2. Mix the berries together in a separate bowl. 
  3. Melt the chocolate if using to decorate, in a bowl set over a small saucepan of gently simmering water.

To cook the pancakes:

  1. Heat a little oil in the base of an 18 cm (7 inch), pour the excess out of the pan into a bowl then add 2-3 tablespoons of the pancake batter to the pan, tilt pan to swirl the batter over the base in a thin layer then cook until browned on the underside. 
  2. Turn the pancake over and cook the second side then slide out of pan and keep hot on a plate while you cook the remaining mixture until you have 8 pancakes.
  3. Fold the pancakes into quarters, spoon in the yogurt mix and berries, arrange in pairs on serving plates and drizzle with melted chocolate, if using. Serve immediately.

    Wow! This sounds fantastic. I've never tried using mint in a sweet dish – I really should give it a try. Your picture looks fantastic! I can never get pancakes to look good for pictures.
