For pancake mix
- 135g plain flour

- To create the rum and lime syrup, heat the lime juice and sugar in a pan until the sugar dissolves. Add the rum, stir and allow to cool.
- For the bramble cream, whip together the cream and sugar, and fold in the blackberries and mint, set aside.
- To make the pancakes, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a bowl.
- Whisk together the milk, egg and melted butter in a separate jug.
- Pour the wet mixture into the dry and whisk until a smooth batter forms. Let the mix stand for a few minutes.
