Lemon meringue pancakes recipe

Indulge in the ultimate sweet treat for Pancake Day


Ingredients (Serves 4)

  • 150ml/1⁄4pt double cream
  • Grated zest and juice of half a lemon
  • 3 tbsp lemon curd
  • 2 crushed meringue nests
  • 8 prepared pancakes (see basic pancake batter recipe)
  • Icing sugar for dusting
  • Lemon wedges for squeezing

Whip the double cream until it forms soft peaks. Stir in the lemon juice, zest and 1 tbsp of the lemon curd to form a soft, smooth cream.
