2. Mix 10 drops red food colouring with 4 drops water. For blue food colouring mix 10 drops food colouring to 2 drops water.
3. Spread a thin layer of Lyle's Golden Syrup mixture on a flat plate, an even and smooth layer is better, using the back of a spoon.
4. Run an extremely hot wet knife through the plate of syrup in a star shape from the centre outwards.
5. Take a dropper or "pipette" of colouring solution, place a small drop in the centre of the syrup. Allow to spread, explaining to the eaters that it's a fractal pattern. You can also make a pattern by making small swirls on the syrup and adding different colours.
6. Once the dispersion slows, scrape the Golden Syrup from the plate and quickly serve on a pre-prepared pancake.
Trouble shooting tips!
• If food colouring doesn't spread and stays as a globule: Add more water to food colouring (1-2 more drops).
• If no fractal pattern appears and colouring diffuses out: Add less water to food colouring.
• If syrup is uneven and hard to spread: Add more water or warm the syrup slightly.
• If syrup spreads very easily and colouring does not form fractal pattern: Add less water, or cool syrup in fridge.
