Sweets for your sweet and sugar for your honey, you'll never ever want to let these pistachios go. By Babylon at The Roof Gardens. Ingredients Pancake recipe 100g plain flour 2x whole eggs 300ml milk 3g salt 10g sugar Honey syrup 100g butter 200g runny honey (I have used our Babylon roof gardens honey) 50g pistachios roughly chopped Method Pancakes Whisk eggs and milk together. Add the salt and sugar to sieved flour. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry slowly until a smooth batter is formed. Heat the pan over a moderate heat, and then wipe it with oiled kitchen paper. Ladle some batter into the pan, tilting the pan to move the mixture around for a thin and even layer. When the pancake is golden brown turn the pancake over, once golden on both sides turn onto a plate. (Don’t worry about keeping them warm at this point they will be cooked in the oven with the syrup.) About six pancakes are needed for the baklava layers. Syrup Melt butter in a pan and add the honey, as it starts to simmer remove from heat. Using a frying pan with a metal handle or an oven proof dish start to layer the pancakes with a small amount of the honey syrup and pistachios between each layer. Place the dish or frying pan in the oven for approximately 7-10mins on 180 c. Remove from oven and leave to cool for a few minutes.
