09 Jan Strawberry and homemade nutella pancake wraps – Dan Doherty, Duck & Waffle
20 g butter
130 g plain flour
300 ml (½ pint) milk
sunflower oil, for cooking
4 tbsp homemade chocolate and almond spread* (see recipe below)
10–12 strawberries, tops removed and sliced ½ cm thick
3 shortbread biscuits, smashed to a crumble
Melt the butter, and allow to cool to around room temperature.
Put the flour, egg and milk in a bowl, whisk together, then stir in the butter.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a teaspoon of oil. When the oil is hot, add a ladleful of the pancake batter and quickly tilt the pan to spread the batter to the edges of the pan, leaving no gaps.
After 30 seconds on the heat the pancake should be set. Turn the pancake over, using a palette knife (or flip if you’re confident) and cook for another 30 seconds on the other side.
Remove to a plate and repeat the process with the remaining oil and batter.
To serve, spread a spoonful of chocolate and almond spread over each pancake, scatter the strawberries over and sprinkle on some of the biscuit crumble.
Wrap, eat, repeat.
