About this recipe: These are a nice treat on an autumnal Sunday morning, perfect for providing plenty of energy for a nice afternoon stroll and if there are any left over, they can be taken as a snack on the walk too! I hadn’t made Scotch pancakes for years, but after being inspired by one of Gwyneth Paltrow’s pancake recipes I decided to have a go at making my own and was pleased with these results.

Serves: 4 

  • 175g plain flour
  • 40g granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 325ml buttermilk
  • 40g unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 handful of raisins
  • 125ml milk
  • extra butter for frying
  • Honey or golden syrup to serve

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Stir the salt, sugar, flour and baking powder together. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs and butter.
  2. Mix the contents of the two bowls together, stir in the raisins and whisk to form a batter, then cover it and allow to sit overnight.
  3. Heat griddle or non-stick pan and add some butter. Whilst this is heating stir the milk in to the batter to give it a better consistency.
  4. Use a tablespoon to put a healthy dollop of batter into a pan, or on a griddle – cook the first side, then flip when you see bubbles on the side facing you. Then cook the other side for about 2 minutes.


The batter doesn't have to be left overnight and the raisins and sugar are optional.
