The Cronut Pancake aka The Beast

Calling all foodie trendsetters. The Cronut may be the new kid on the block, seemlessly blending croissant and doughnut into a delectable gourmet treat but today we’ve taken it a step further. Introducing the Cronut Pancake! Aka the Beast! Like?


  • 80g plain flour
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 2 medium egg whites
  • 100ml semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 large croissant
  • 1/2 jammie doughnut


Whisk up your batter

  1. Put the flour in a large bowl with the sugar and salt. Make a well in the centre and add in your eggs, egg whites and melted butter. Add about half the milk and whisk the mixture together into a smooth batter. Whisk in the remaining milk until smooth.

Cooking your pancake

  1. Arrange small chunks of croissant and doughnut in the bottom of a medium-sized ovenproof pan. Pour the batter over and drizzle a bit of raspberry coulis on top.
  2. Bake your pancake in the oven until it has puffed up and is golden brown. This should take around 15 minutes but remember, a watched pancake never puffs! Use oven gloves when taking the pan out of the oven as the handle will be hot!

To Serve

  1. Bring your pancake to the table still in the pan and cut into wedges for the perfect ‘help yourself’ dessert with a drizzle of raspberry coulis.
