Trifling Pancakes Dessert Recipe

Trifling Pancakes Recipe

Ingredients: Serves 6

1 quantity of Simple Pancakes
25 g/1 oz cornflour (cornstarch)

25 g/1 oz/2 tbsp caster (superfine) sugar
1 egg
300 ml milk
4 bananas
Lemon juice
45 ml/3 tbsp chopped mixed nuts
90 ml/6 tbsp strawberry jam (conserve)

Icing (confectioners') sugar, for dusting


Make the pancakes. Put the comflour in a saucepan and blend in the sugar and egg until smooth. Stir in the milk. Bring to the boil and cook for 2 minutes, stirring all the time, until thickened and smooth. Place a circle of wet greaseproof (waxed) paper over the top to prevent a skin forming and leave until cold. Thinly slice the bananas and toss in a little lemon juice. Stir into the cold custard with the nuts. Place one pancake on a serving plate and spread with a quarter of the jam. Top with a second pancake and add a third of the banana custard. Repeat the layers, finishing with a pancake. Dust the top of the stack with icing sugar and serve cut into wedges.
