Smash Burger Pancakes



1 egg, separated
75g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp caster sugar
100ml milk
1 tbsp neutral-tasting oil
250g 15%-fat beef mince
2 slices American cheese or mild cheddar
30ml burger sauce
40g sliced gherkins


Beat the egg white to soft peaks using an electric whisk. Mix the egg yolk with the flour, baking powder, and sugar in a bowl. Slowly whisk in the milk to form a smooth paste. Gently fold the whipped egg white into the yolk mixture.
Heat half the oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Spoon in a quarter of the pancake mixture and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until the edges are set and golden. Repeat to make three more pancakes, keeping them warm in a low oven.
In the same pan, heat the remaining oil over high heat. Divide the beef mince into two balls. Place one ball in the pan, then use a spatula to smash it down into a thin patty. Cook for 2-3 minutes until browned and crispy, then flip and place a slice of cheese on top. Cook for another 1-2 minutes until the cheese is melted. Repeat with the second ball of mince.
Assemble the smash burger pancakes by layering a pancake, a cheesy beef patty, some burger sauce, sliced gherkins, and then another pancake. Repeat for the second burger.
Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious smash burger pancakes!
