Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Beat the whole eggs and yolk with the sugar and baking powder, then add the butter. Beat the flour slowly into the egg mix to make a batter, then pour in the milk and leave to stand in a warm place for 10 mins (the consistency should be like thick custard).

  • STEP 2

    Put a frying pan on a medium heat, then rub with buttered kitchen paper. Put large spoonfuls of the mix into the pan (remember, these are thick pancakes) and cook for about 3 mins until bubbles form on top and the edges start to brown. Turn and cook for a further 3 mins. Keep the made pancakes warm and repeat until all the mix is used (any extra pancakes can be frozen for later).

  • STEP 3

    Warm the cherries through gently then spoon over the pancakes and top with a big dollop of crème fraîche.
