Method

  • 01
  • Sift flour into a large bowl, make a well in the centre, add lemon rind, ground cinnamon, egg and half the sparkling wine, then whisk until smooth. Whisk in the remaining wine, cover with plastic wrap and rest at room temperature for 1 hour. Whisk the eggwhites until firm peaks form and fold through batter.

  • Meanwhile, for cinnamon caramel combine sugar, cinnamon and 150ml water in a small saucepan and stir over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Cook until dark caramel in colour (8-10 minutes), remove from heat and carefully add wine and cream, stirring to combine. Remove cinnamon and set aside.

Drain on absorbent paper, dust heavily with icing sugar and serve immediately with cinnamon caramel.
