Boxes and ingredients are packed in facilities that handles Peanut, Nuts, Sesame, Fish, Crustaceans, Milk, Egg, Mustard, Celery, Soya, Gluten and Sulphites. Due to the conflict in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Red Berry Compote
Preheat your oven to 200°C. Heat a large frying pan on medium heat (no oil). Once hot, add the flaked almonds and dry-fry, stirring regularly, until lightly toasted, 3-4 mins. TIP: Watch them like a hawk as they can burn easily. When nicely toasted, transfer them to a bowl and set aside.
Heat a drizzle of oil in the now empty frying pan on medium-high heat. When hot, lay in the bacon rashers and fry until crispy and brown, 3-4 mins on each side. When cooked, transfer to a plate. Pour over half the honey and turn the bacon over in it so it is nicely coated. Then cover to keep warm. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat. Cook bacon thoroughly.
While the bacon cooks, pop the pancakes onto a baking tray and into the oven to warm through, 2-3 mins.
When the pancakes have warmed through, start to build your stack! Equally share the creme fraiche between all the pancakes, dollop the red berry compote onto each as well. Using a teaspoon, gently swirl the creme fraiche and compote until ripples form. TIP: You don't want to mix completely, so be gentle.
Scatter over some blueberries, onto each pancake, then stack one onto another, creating a stack of 2 (1 stack per person).
Next, arrange the honey coated bacon on top. Finally, scatter over the toasted almonds and drizzle over the remaining honey. Pancake heaven! Enjoy.
