Take pancakes to the next level with some homemade flavoured sugars. Simply add your ingredients to a jar of sugar and leave for a week or two. Or, if time is tight then you can speed up the infusion by just whizzing the ingredients in a food processor for 30 seconds or so. Besides adorning your pancakes, flavoured sugars are great sprinkled on biscuits before baking in the oven, to dredge French toast, caramelise desserts under the grill, scatter over fresh fruit salads or fold into buttercreams. Our favourite flavour combinations included cardamon and mint, clementine and cinnamon, lemongrass and lime and vanilla.
