  1. Hotcakes: Pre heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Sift the self raising flour. Combine eggs, 100g castor sugar and 400ml milk. Whisk in flour and leave to rest for 1 hour. Butter hotcake moulds and half fill with mix. Bake for 15 minutes and then check with a cake tester to see if the inside is cooked. Hot cake is cooked when the cake tester comes out clean. If not cooked place back in oven for another 2-3 minutes.
  2. Whipped Vanilla Cream: Place 500g cream, 100g maple syrup and vanilla bean into kitchen aid and whip until medium peak.
  3. Honeycomb: Line a tray with greaseproof paper. Place 450g sugar, 100ml water and 150g glucose in a heavy based pot. Sift 25g bicarb soda into a small bowl. Heat the sugar mix to 121⁰C and remove from heat. Add bicarb soda and whisk through. Pour into lined tray to cool.
  4. Miso Maple Syrup: Place 300g maple syrup and 100g white miso paste into blender. Blend until smooth.
  5. To Serve: Plate hotcakes and garnish with a dollop of whipped vanilla cream, shards of honeycomb and a handful of blackberries (or your favourite seasonal fruit). Finish with a drizzle of miso maple syrup and the petals of Flowerdale Farm Marigold edible flowers
