This is a beautiful dish of deep-fried pancake strips dusted with icing sugar, served with a bowl of Kirsch-flavoured plum sauce.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
8 x 18cm * basic pancakes [rid:11498]
oil, for deep-frying
icing sugar, sifted

Plum sauce

Quantity Ingredient
160g plum jam
125ml water
1 piece lemon peel
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 teaspoon arrowroot, dissolved in 2 teaspoons water
1 tablespoon kirsch

Method

  1. Roll up each pancake and cut into strips 1 cm wide. Heat oil and when very hot put in 1 pancake strip. If oil sizzles immediately, it is hot enough. Add half the pancake strips and toss with a slotted spoon until golden all over.
  2. Remove from oil and drain on crumpled paper towels. Keep hot while frying remaining pancake strips. Serve warm, piled onto a dish and dusted with icing sugar. Accompany with plum sauce.
  3. To make plum sauce, place jam, water and lemon peel and juice in a saucepan and bring slowly to the boil. Thicken with arrowroot mixture and boil, stirring, until clear. Strain, flavour with Kirsch and serve sauce hot or cold.
