Method:

Add all of the pancake ingredients into a large mixing bowl and whisk together until smooth.

Put the batter to one side to rest.

To make the hollandaise sauce, place the butter into a bowl and heat in the microwave and heat until it is boiling, it should only take a minute.

Meanwhile whisk the egg yolks together with the vinegar and mustard.

When the butter is boiling carefully remove from the microwave and pour into the egg yolk mixture whilst whisking together slowly to create the sauce.

As you pour the butter in, the heat should cook the egg yolks and thicken the sauce.

Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add some oil.

Spoon in a small ladleful of batter to make a pancake about 10cm across.
Cook for approximately 1 minute until the edges of the pancake are firm and bubbles have started to appear on the surface.

Flip and fry for another 30 secs utill golden on both sides.

Continue this process until you have made enough pancakes, keep them warm in the oven set at 100°C.

Place the Parma on top of the pancakes.

Finally, poach the eggs for 3 minutes, then remove from the water and drain before placing on top of the ham.

Spoon over the hollandaise sauce and serve with freshly ground black pepper.
