Look at the powers of the EU
What are they and where do they start and how they bind member states
Then look into Journals for criticisms as to how the EU maybe considered as democratic entity, some will go far as to say its becoming like the United States and soon we will have a United Europe, basically your looking for criticism against EU but you have to make sure it links in with your essay, for this you need to look at journals for criticism
Make a plan as to how you will write your essay, what points will you include and see if you can email it to a tutor who may be willing to give you quick feedback as to whether you are on the right track or not
Just my two cents, I could be wrong though, but thats what I made of it.

Google democratic deficit
Think I may have done a detailed post on this awhile ago you might want to search for, don't remember all that much about it now
Basically, a lot of EU institutions are only indirectly and not directly accountable, though in reality this is how most governments (including the UK gvt.) operate.
There are a good few pages on this in Craig and De Burca's textbook

It's a de jure democracy, but a de facto terribleocracy, because there is a big discrepancy between the people at what actually goes on in the EU parliament, because, among other things, no one votes for these elections in most countries.
