Millefeuille is just a posh restaurant way to say 'stacks or layers'. This is a great example of how easy it can be to multitask in the kitchen and make something that looks and tastes great. This is REALLY simple to do and lends itself perfectly to cook-along with - it just requires a little love & attention. The three main flavours of strawberry, cream and lovely pancakes make a perfect flavour combination. For a dessert, it's also not that bad for you!
Small pan to cook the strawberry sauce
Large frying pan to make the pancakes
Mixing bowl to whisk the pancake mix
Small mixing bowl to whisk the cream
Hand whisk AND and electric whisk
Ramekin of tap water with tablespoon measure

Mini sieve to dust with icing sugar (this bit is optional, just makes it look pretty)
