accompaniments (you may need these)


1. For the pancakes: Chop the cherries using the Braun chopper attachment. Place the melted butter, milk, eggs, sugar and pinch of salt in a bowl and blend together with the handblender. Finally add the flour, spice and fruit, continue to blend until a thick batter is achieved.

2. Heat a non-stick frying pan and brush with a little oil. Spoon in the batter allowing one 15 ml spoon per pancake. Cook for 2-3 minutes, turning over when small bubbles appear on the surface. Cook for a further 2 minutes before removing from the pan and repeating the process with the remaining mixture.

3. Cover the pancakes with a tea towel to prevent them from drying out.

4. For the raisin syrup: Simmer all the ingredients together in a small saucepan over a moderate heat for approximately 5-8 minutes, then remove the vanilla pod and blend to a puree. Pass through a sieve.

5. To serve: Gently reheat the pancakes in a low set oven, heat the custard according to the pack instructions then fold in the rum. Take individual plates and stack 3-4 on each plate, spoon around the rum custard, drizzle with the raisin syrup and finish with cream if desired
