What a tosser! Eton mess sourdough pancakes for Shrove Tuesday

You're going to be fasting for the next 40 days and 40 night right? So why not go out on a high! 
 New year's resolutions - ever keep any? One of mine was to conquer sourdough this year. So last Wednesday I made my first sourdough starter. Before I get to make a sourdough loaf it was just ready in time for pancake day!
Lucky I had labelled it - it would have been thrown away last night when someone else was clearing up while I was out doing a wedding tasting session. 
 Came up with the eton mess pancake idea at 7am on Sunday - must have had cravings! But then a suggestion back from  on twitter which just made it even better - folding the meringue through the pancake mix.

Used this sourdough pancakes recipe - always trust a bloggers recipe! 
 Then topped with vanilla chantilly, berries, coulis and chopped pistachio. After the first bite though realised it was missing something - sprinkled more meringue over the top. You can never have too much meringue!
Got next year's pancake idea ready - pina colada pancakes!
