  • Rhubarb 400g (14oz), washed and sliced

  • Milk 150ml (¼ pint)
  • Sunflower oil 1 tbsp
  • Double cream whipped, to serve, optional


  1. Tip rhubarb into a saucepan with ginger and 75g (3oz) sugar. Add 1 tbsp water and stir well, slowly bringing to a simmer. Cook gently for 8-10 minutes, stirring often, until fruit is soft.Taste and check the sweetness, adding a little more sugar if necessary. Leave to cool.

    Sift flour into a bowl and stir in remaining sugar. Make a well in the centre and add egg. Starting in centre, whisk in milk, gradually until smooth and has the consistency of thick cream.

    Wipe a non-stick frying pan with a little oil and heat until hot. Turn down the heat to medium low. Cook pancakes in batches: drop tablespoons of mix into pan, well spaced apart, and fry for 1- 2 minutes on each side until surface puffs and bubbles.

    Serve pancakes with rhubarb compote and cream, if using.
