Sunday Pudding

In our house Sunday lunch is a big deal. It's a time we all make sure that we eat together and indulge a little. Every week we choose something super scrummy (and usually heavily calorie laden) to enjoy for pudding. I do always post pictures of this on Facebook but thought you may like to have the recipes to go with them so here's my commitment to you... as long as the pudding is made by us (i.e. we aren't with friends or family) we will endeavour to post it here complete with pictures. So here we go!

Pancake Cake with Damson Cream

This is actually incredibly easy but does take a little time


1tsp sunflower oil
3 cups of self raising flour
3 cups of milk
3 eggs

1/2 cup Jam - I used damson
1 cup of whipping cream
1tbs caster sugar
1 handful of raspberries

The first thing you need to do is make the pancakes. For this mix all the ingredients together until a smooth batter is achieved. Then heat the oil in a frying pan. When the pan is hot, pour in a ladle of the batter and cook for a couple of minutes each side. Leave to cool. Continue until all the batter is used.

Next you need to make up the filling. Mix all the ingredients except the raspberries until the cream has begun to stiffen. Fold in the raspberries.

Now all you need to do is layer is up. I smoothed the cream down the sides too so that it was more of a surprise.

Play around with different fillings, this really does lend itself to whatever you like so just go for it!
