  1. For the spiders, pick out 8 blueberries or 4 grapes (halved) for the heads, 8 grapes for the bodies and another 8 grapes or blueberries for the legs. Carefully pick apart the seeds from 1-2 raspberries for the eyes.

  2. To make the legs, finely slice each blueberry or grape crossways to make 4 discs, then cut each in half to make 8 semi-circles.

  3. Brush the blueberry or grape ‘heads’ with a little honey, if using, and secure raspberry seeds (or berry trimmings) as eyes; set aside.

  4. Add 200ml water to the pancake shaker bottle (don’t worry if it’s under the ‘fill’ line). Put the cap on; shake vigorously for 2 mins until completely smooth. Transfer some of the batter to an icing bottle (or piping bag) with a 3mm nozzle.

  5. Heat a nonstick frying pan over a medium heat and brush with a little oil. Drizzle the pancake batter into the pan to make a 10-12cm cross, then draw another at a 45° angle. Link the tips and middles of the lines with more batter to complete the spider’s web effect. Cook for 30 secs-1 min on each side until lightly golden. Repeat with the remaining batter, refilling the bottle or bag as needed.

  6. Decorate the pancakes with the berry spiders, putting the heads and bodies in place, then positioning the legs around them. Drizzle with honey and serve with the remaining fruit on the side.
