  • Step 1

    Place the flat plate on the unit. Close the lid. Turn the dial to set temperature to 150°C. Set an external timer to 7 minutes and allow the grill plate to preheat.

  • Step 2

    Whisk together dry ingredients for the pancakes, then whisk in the egg until combined followed by olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Gradually whisk in the milk until you achieve a smooth batter. Whisk in the desired amount of food colouring.

  • Step 3

    Pour pancake batter onto flat plate, about 1/3 cup of batter per pancake. Aim to cook 3 pancakes at a time.

  • Step 4

    Cook the pancakes 1-2 minutes, until tiny bubbles appear, flip with a silicone spatula and cook for a further 30 seconds to 1 minute. Repeat until all of the batter has been used up. You should be able to make roughly 15 small pancakes in total.

  • Step 5

    Whisk together the cheesecake filling ingredients, adding only half the lemon juice and adjusting to desired taste. Serve with pancakes and top with fresh raspberries if desired.
