August 26, 2016


  • 20 gm butter, coarsely chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 185 ml (¾ cup) milk
  • 90 gm plain flour
  • 20 gm hazelnut meal
  • 3 tsp caster sugar
  • ½ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
  • Finely grated rind of 1 lemon
  • For dusting: icing sugar
  • To serve: thickly sliced banana and honey
  • To serve: coarsely chopped roasted hazelnuts (optional)

Honey-malt ice-cream

  • 80 gm honey
  • 150 ml milk
  • 450 ml pouring cream
  • 75 gm malted milk powder
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 30 gm raw caster sugar


  1. For honey-malt ice-cream, cook honey in a saucepan over medium-high heat until caramelised (2-3 minutes), then remove from heat and add milk (be careful, hot caramel will spit).
  2. Return to heat, whisk to combine, then add cream and malted milk powder and whisk to combine, then bring just to the simmer.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk yolks and sugar in a bowl until pale (3-4 minutes), then pour in cream mixture and whisk to combine.
  4. Return to pan and stir continuously over medium heat until mixture thickly coats the back of a wooden spoon (3-4 minutes), then strain into a clean bowl and refrigerate until chilled.
  5. Freeze in an ice-cream machine according to manufacturer’s instructions, then freeze until required. Makes about 1 litre.
  6. Preheat oven to 200C. Place butter in a 22cm-diameter ovenproof frying pan and place in oven until butter melts and pan is very hot (2-3 minutes).
  7. Meanwhile, process eggs, milk, flour, hazelnut meal, sugar, nutmeg and lemon rind in a food processor until smooth and combined.
  8. Carefully pour into hot pan, return to oven and bake until puffed and golden (12-15 minutes).
  9. Serve hot, dusted with icing sugar and topped with banana, honey and honey-malt ice-cream, then scatter with roasted hazelnuts.
