How to make beurre noisette

Place butter in a pan and cook gently until all the water in the butter cooks off and the milk solids will separate to the bottom of the pan and gently golden.

This will spit gently and once quietens down will have turned a nutty brown colour, set this aside to cool.

How to make pancake batter

Mix the salt, flour and sugar with the eggs in stages to create a smooth batter.

Then add the milk in stages and finally the beurre noisette.

Pancake serving suggestions

Lemon and sugar pancakes

Dust the cooked pancakes with caster sugar before rolling up and serving with lemon wedges.

Jam and cream pancakes

Whip up some double cream to a spreadable consistency.

Once your pancakes have cooled spread over a layer of your favourite jam, followed by a layer of whipped cream and fold up into quarters.

Garnish with fresh berries.
