Stacked flapjacks with berries and warm citrus sauce


  • 80g butter
  • 50g cake flour
  • 50g cornflour
  • a pinch of salt
  • 500ml (2 cups) milk
  • 6 large eggs, separated
  • 50g sugar
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) oil
  • 100g butter
  • 150g sugar
  • 1 litre orange juice
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 4 cardamom pods
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 500g each strawberries, blueberries and raspberries (see Cook’s Tips below)
  • pistachios, chopped, to sprinkle
  • fresh mint, to garnish



For the flapjacks, melt the butter in a saucepan. Sprinkle in the flour, cornflour and salt. Stir with a wooden spoon to make a smooth roux. Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until there are no more lumps.


Transfer the mixture to a bowl and beat in the egg yolks one at a time.


Whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form, slowly adding the sugar. Gently fold the egg whites, a little at a time, into the batter.


Heat the oil in a frying pan. Place egg rings in the frying pan and spoon the batter into the rings. Cook the flapjacks over a medium to hot heat for 1 minute on each side.


For the sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the sugar and stir until it is a golden-brown caramel, about 5 minutes. Add the juice, zest, cardamom and cinnamon. Bring to the boil and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.


Place a flapjack on each serving plate and top with the berries. Place another flapjack on top and drizzle with the  sauce. Sprinkle with pistachios and garnish with mint.

• You can substitute the berries with any other fresh seasonal fruit you prefer.
• Add a tot of Cointreau, Triple Sec or Grand Marnier to the sauce for an extra kick.
