    Spelt flour pancakes with rhubarb and cardamom

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 6

    Ingredients

    125g Bacheldre Stoneground Spelt Flour
    1 egg
    300ml semi-skimmed milk
    400g rhubarb, cut into 3cm lengths
    2 cardamom pods, lightly crushed
    2 tbsp golden caster sugar
    50g butter, melted

    Method

    1. Sift the flour and a pinch of salt into a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Crack the egg into the well and whisk the mixture together, incorporating all the flour into the egg. Gradually add the milk, whisking until you have a smooth batter. Cover and set aside.
    2. Place the rhubarb in a small pan with the cardamom pods, sugar and 50ml cold water. Heat gently, stirring occasionally, to dissolve the sugar, then simme for 4-5 minutes, until the rhubarb is tender. Remove from the heat, discard the cardamom pods and keep the rhubarb warm.
    3. Heat a little of the butter in a 20cm crêpe pan or small non-stick frying pan. Add a small ladleful of the batter and swirl around to coat the base of the pan. Cook over a medium heat for 1-2 minutes or until the mixture has just set underneath, then flip over and cook for a further minute. Repeat with the remaining mixture to make 6 pancakes, keeping the cooked pancakes warm on a covered plate.
    4. Fold the pancakes into quarters and spoon the rhubarb mixture over. Serve with a dollop of fromage frais.

    Cook's tips

    Make a double batch of pancakes and freeze half of them. Place a sheet of baking parchment between each one to stop them sticking together. Wrap the whole stack in foil and freeze for up to 2 months. Defrost thoroughly before warming in a moderate oven.
