Dissolve bicarb in boiling water. Immediately pour mixture into batter and mix. Let batter stand for 5 to 10 minutes.
In the meantime, whip cream with 100g caster sugar.
Heat a small non-stick frying pan on medium heat. Pour a little batter into the pan and rotate to spread batter evenly over the bottom. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, till holes appear on the surface and the edges start to become dry. Flip and cook on the other side for up to 1 minute. Repeat with remaining batter.
