Cherry Bakewell Pancakes

We've teamed up with @woodhillkitchen over on Instagram to bring you some delicious recipes you can whip up at home. It's all about Brunch at the weekends and this recipe is a great option for a lazy Sunday.

Cherry Bakewell Pancakes

Use an American Pancake recipe. I use the BBC Good Food recipe below:

BBC Good Food American Pancakes.


200g self-raising flour

1 ½ tsp baking powder

1 tbsp golden caster sugar

3 large eggs

25g melted butter, plus extra for cooking

200ml milk

vegetable oil, for cooking


35g Ground Almonds

¼ tsp Almond Extract


Berries and Cherries Jam

Cherry Coulis

Fresh Cherries

Toasted Almonds

Method - Pancakes

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl with a pinch of salt.

Create a well in the middle and add the eggs, melted butter, milk and almond extract.

Whisk everything together until smooth then pour into a jug.

Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. When it's melted, add a ladle of batter (or two if your frying pan is big enough to cook two pancakes at the same time). It will seem very thick but this is how it should be. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about 1cm/½in thick.

You can keep them warm in a low oven whilst you create a stack of the pancakes and prepare the filling.


Make the Cherry Coulis by heating some frozen cherries with a few tablespoons of icing sugar for around ten minutes.

To create the pancake stack

Layer the pancakes with berries and cherries jam, and cherry coulis alternately.On the top add your fresh cherries and toasted almonds

@woodhillkitchen began in June 2020 after deciding I could not take one more picture of my food to sit on my camera roll unseen by the world. Be it home cooked or eating out, there’s nothing I find more satisfying than good food and getting the perfect pic! Despite still working through lockdown, quieter weekends gave me the chance to experiment with new recipes and spend a little more time in the @woodhillkitchen. Proving vegetables don’t need to be boring and that cake is ALWAYS a good idea is my goal and I hope to encourage people to love their leftovers, shop small and support local businesses!
