Method

Step 1
Download and print the image of Prue Leith.

Step 2
To make the batter, combine all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth.

Step 3
Split the batter evenly between 3 bowls.

Step 4
Take one bowl of batter and split this into 2 more smaller bowls.

Step 5
You should have 2 large portions of batter and 2 small portions of batter.

Step 6
Take one of the large bowls of batter and colour it with ivory food colouring to make the skin coloured batter. Pour this into a large squeezy bottle.

Step 7
Take the other large bowl of batter and colour it with brown food colouring (and a little black food colouring) to make the hair coloured batter. Pour this into a large squeezy bottle.

Step 8
Colour one of the small bowls of batter with the red food colouring. Pour this into a piping bag, snip just the tip off and then pipe into a small squeezy bottle.

Step 9
Colour the other small bowl of batter with black food colouring. Pour this into a piping bag, snip just the tip off and then pipe into a small squeezy bottle.

Step 10
Trace the image of Prue Leith onto a parchment circle, making sure to pick out all the details.

Step 11
With nothing in the pan, turn the hob on high and heat the pan.

Step 12
Once the pan is hot, turn the hob off.

Step 13
Carefully place the parchment paper, pencil side down in the pan.

Step 14
Starting with the red batter pipe the glasses, lips and earrings on to the parchment paper.

Step 15
Then with the black batter, pipe the outline, facial features, eyes, hair details and nose. Use the red batter to fill in the necklace.

Step 16
Fill in the face and neck with the skin colour batter, making sure to cover the lips, glasses and other facial details.

Step 17
Then fill in the hair with the hair coloured batter.

Step 18
Turn the hob on to medium.

Step 19
Once the pancake starts to form bubbles on top, carefully flip over and cook for another minute or until cooked.

Step 20
Once the pancake is cooked, remove from the pan and carefully peel off the parchment straight away.

Step 21
Repeat this process until you have 4 Prue pancakes. You can retrace the face onto the parchment circle again if you need to.
