Bake Like Alton

Alton Rudd is our very own pastry chef here at Blue Diamond, and he has prepared a perfect pancake recipe and a unique, tasty topping to accompany them.

Pancake recipe (serves 8)

• 100 g plain flour
• 2 eggs
• 1 tsp sugar
• 1 pinch salt
• 1 tbsp sunflower oil
• 300 ml milk


• In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar and salt together.
• Make a well in the centre and crack 2 eggs into the middle.
• Pour in about 50ml from the 300ml of milk and add the sunflower oil then start whisking from the centre, gradually drawing the flour into the eggs mixture. Once all the flour is incorporated, beat until you have a smooth, thick paste. Add a little more milk if it is too stiff to beat.
• Add a good splash of milk and whisk to loosen the thick batter. While still whisking, pour in a steady stream of the remaining milk. Continue pouring and whisking until you have a batter that is the consistency of slightly thick single cream. (If you struggle with lumps use a hand blender)
