- Pancakes’ puddings ! Merry Christmas !
First, I would like to apologize for my non presence on the blogosphere for a few weeks.
It’s been hectic, like for everyone who work in hospitality I guess.
My full time job as a chef, my cocktails parties for my clients and on the top of that the organization of a pop up in one month. Four nights of Mexican food and drinks to prepare. It’s done and it was a great success, everybody was happy and they loved the food, we couldn’t expect more.
It’s Christmas in a few days so I wanted to make something Christmassy…. But with leftovers. I hate wasting food and I had the edges of at least 20 pancakes as I made little pancakes bundles, cut with pastry circle, for my client.
I added some cream, egg, cinnamon, it was a pure experiment and it worked very well, but I didn’t dare calling it Christmas pudding as I leave in England and I know that English people don’t joke with traditions and especially with their Christmas pudding !
It’s quick, very easy and yummy.
Just chose a good quality chocolate as white chocolate is tampered chocolate made with a lot of butter so if you don’t buy a good quality one you will end up only with butter in your pan when it will melt.
Pancake puddings, serves 6
– 2 big handfuls of pancakes leftover
– 300ml of double cream
– 1 tbsp of ground cinnamon
– 1 tsp of ground ginger
– 1 tsp of ground nutmeg
– 4 cloves
– 1 tbsp of dried cranberries or raisins
– 1 egg
– 2 tbsp of sugar
– 250g of good quality white chocolate
– 250g of desiccated coconut
Mix in a big bowl the cream with the sugar, add the pancakes cut in small pieces then the egg, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg cloves and dried cranberries.
Preheat your oven on gas mark 4 – 180°, grease 6 muffin molds and drop in the preparation after taking off the cloves if don’t want to bite one and feel like you are at the dentist!
Cook for 30min and leave it to cool down while you are melting the chocolate slowly with a bit of water.
Cover the puddings with the chocolate and straight away gently roll the puddings in coconut.
I was very happy with the result.
To come soon a lot of news and food gossips, recipes and tips on how to cook easy and yummy dishes…
For now, I wish you a very beautiful Christmas with your loved ones.
Merry Christmas !
