Using fresh and seasonal fruit, this brandy snap recipe is a lovely summer pudding and sure to be a hit with the whole family!
You will need:
For the fruit
2 sticks rhubarb cut into 2cm cubes
100g strawberries halved
A pinch of sugar
20g caster sugar
For the brandy snaps
50g plain flour
50g caster sugar
50g golden syrup
A good pinch of ground ginger
A good pinch salt ( or sea salt flakes)
Macerate the fruit in gin, sugar and salt. Then flambe in a hot pan (take care of flames!). Finish with a good few cracks of ground black pepper for a bit of a bite. Allow syrup to cook out to a nice syrupy consistency.
For the brandy snaps, melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup. Then mix with flour and ginger. Allow to set before rolling into 4/6 balls. Place on to a baking sheet with baking mat or greaseproof paper and bake in a preheated oven at 180 degrees Celcius for 8-10 mins until evenly golden throughout. Shape over a lightly greased jam jar and allow to cool.
Serve with a dollop of fresh yoghurt, clotted cream or ice cream, drizzle with Chatsworth honey and garnish with fresh leaves (basil/mint). Enjoy!
