To prepare the sticky, tart strawberry & lemon sauce, on a high heat, cook the strawberries, sugar, water, lemon juice and zest in a pan until the strawberries soften. Leave to cool in the fridge for 15 minutes before serving.

To prepare the pancakes, mix the flour & sugar in a bowl and make a well to whisk in the egg, melted butter and a dash of milk.

Gradually whisk in the remainder of the milk to form a smooth batter.

Pour a tablespoon of batter onto a lightly oiled pan on a medium heat and cook for 3-4 minutes until air bubbles start to appear on the surface.

Flip the pancake and cook for another 2 mins until golden brown underneath.


To serve, place a dollop of creme fraiche on the warm pancakes and cover with the chilled, sticky, tart strawberry and lemon sauce. Enjoy!!
