For the pancakes

450g Plain flour

4tsp Baking Powder

2tsp bicarbonate of soda

568ml carton of buttermilk

8tbsp Prosecco

4 eggs


For the syrup

300g sugar

300ml Prosecco


To make the pancakes:

Mix the plain flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda together in a bowl. Make a well in the centre of the mixture and add the carton of buttermilk and the Prosecco.

Break the eggs into the bowl and beat together until you’ve created a smooth batter. Leave the mixture to rest for 1 hour.

When the mixture is ready, pour a small scoop of the batter into a hot oiled pan (vegetable oil is best to handle the high heat) and cook both sides of the pancake. Place on a plate and repeat until you’ve used all of the mixture and created an impressive stack of pancakes.

To make the syrup:

Add the sugar to the Prosecco in a pan and hat on a medium hob for around 3 minutes until it becomes syrup.

Stack the pancakes on a plate with Prosecco syrup in between each one and top with berries and a drizzle of syrup to finish.
