Step 1
Download and print the image of Harry Hill.

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 four bowls, weighing 30g, 100g, 150g and 250g.

Step 4
Colour the 30g batter with red, the 150g with black, the 250g with ivory and keep the 100g plain.

Step 5
Transfer the red and black batters to separate piping bags fitted with no.1 nozzles.

Step 6
Transfer ⅓ plain batter to another piping bag fitted with a no.1 nozzle.

Step 7
Transfer the ivory batter and remaining plain batter to separate squeezy bottles.

Step 8
Trace the image of Harry Hill onto a parchment circle, making sure to pick out all the details.

Step 9
With nothing in the pan, turn the hob on high and heat the pan.

Step 10
Once the pan is hot, turn the hob off.

Step 11
Carefully place the parchment paper, pencil side down in the pan.

Step 12
Starting with the black batter pipe the outline, shirt details, facial features, eyes and glasses on to the parchment paper.

Step 13
Then with the red batter pipe the lips.

Step 14
Use the small portion of plain batter to pipe the white parts of the glasses, eyes and teeth.

Step 15
Fill in the face and neck with the ivory batter, making sure to cover the lips, glasses and other facial details.

Step 16
Fill in the shirt with the plain batter.

Step 17
Turn the hob on to medium.

Step 18
Once the pancake starts to form bubbles on top, carefully flip over and cook for another minute or until cooked.

Step 19
Once the pancake is cooked, remove from the pan and carefully peel off the parchment straight away.

Step 20
Repeat this process until you have 4 Harry pancakes. You can retrace the face onto the parchment circle again if you need to.
