About this recipe: When I was in year six, my class visited Bore Place Dairy Farm in Kent. We learned to make Scotch pancakes, which I love. The next day I woke up at 6 am and made 3 batches - they were AMAZING!

Makes: 5 large pancakes

  • 6 rounded tablespoons self-raising flour
  • 200ml milk
  • 2 tablespoons WHISKED egg (not two whole eggs)
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons sugar (for sweet pancakes) or
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (for salted)
  • olive or vegetable oil

Prep:5min  ›  Cook:4min  ›  Ready in:9min 

  1. Sieve the flour into a bowl, then slowly, bit by bit, add the milk, whisking constantly to make sure there are no lumps.
  2. Then add 1 tablespoon of the egg, mixing well. when it is all mixed in, whisk in the rest of the egg. If you're adding sugar or salt, add this now.
  3. Coat the bottom of a heavy based pan with the oil and wait till it's heated. To check, put a blob of pancake mixture in the pan. If it sizzles and cooks, it's hot enough.
  4. Pour 1/5 of the mixture into the pan. With a spatula, neaten the edges. When the top starts bubbling, turn it over, then wait for a minute or two. If you can move the pancake around, then look underneath to see if it's done.
  5. Top with a topping and serve up. ENJOY!

Other ideas

For a fancy feel, make a pancake with salt and add little bits of smoked salmon at stage 2. Top with creme fraiche and more smoked salmon.
