The Morning After
Setting the scene:
Vanilla Pancakes with Edible Flowers.
The night of passion found Wanda and Roqué waking locked in each others arms, Wanda still wearing her red stockings. There was time to take breakfast together still savouring the delights and tastes of last night.
Pancakes with vanilla and Ricotta still warm from the pan decorated with edible flowers, star fruit, physalis wrapped in their natural leaves, dollops of whipped cream which Wanda dipped her finger in and licked it off in such a teasing manner. Roqué leaned over and spanked her delicious bottom.
The pancake was devoured, a good bye kiss and they left for work with gorgeous memories of last night (and this morning!) still dancing in their heads.

Vanilla Pancakes with Edible Flowers
For 2 lovers.
Get on with it…
Preheat the oven to 180C. Mix together with an electric whisk 2 egg yolks (keep the whites for later) 140ml milk, 125g ricotta & ¼ tsp vanilla bean paste. Next fold in 150g self raising flour & a pinch of salt but do not over mix.
In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks and then gradually add 40g caster sugar & continue whisking until firm. Carefully fold this also into the batter mixture.
Heat a large oven suitable frying pan in the oven for a few minutes, bring it out & tip the mixture into the pan. Bake in the centre of the oven for 15 minutes or until firm to the touch with just golden edges.
Lift out onto a warm plate & decorate with blueberries, star fruit, cape gooseberries, edible flowers, mint leaves & of course whipped cream for dipping a finger into – but who will lick it off? Any exotic fruit you choose really. A swirl of maple syrup & all ready to share indulgently.
Feed the desire…
If you want to improve your ‘games in the bedroom’ then blueberries are a must. They promote blood flow, essential to good sex and it is said that they will keep you cute, young and energised. Share a punnet in bed tonight …
