    About this recipe: These pancakes are passed down from my grandmother, who was Scandinavian. They are light and fluffy, and great with berry syrups. I have made these for years as a special treat, and I hope you enjoy them as much as my family has.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 125g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 egg
    • 250ml buttermilk
    • 50g butter, melted

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:20min 

    1. Preheat and lightly grease a large frying pan.
    2. Mix the flour, bicarb and salt (you can use less salt to taste) together in a bowl. Add the egg, buttermilk and butter; stir together lightly, but keep it lumpy. The batter should look thick, spongy and puffy.
    3. Drop 5 tablespoons (75ml) of the batter onto the pan, spreading lightly with the bottom of the spoon. Cook until lightly-browned on each side, 1 to 2 minutes per side.

    Tip

    If you prefer less salt, reduce the amount to 1/4 or 1/2 a teaspoon.

    Followed recipe to the letter and sorry I did. The pancakes were light and fluffy and delicious at first bite until the taste of salt hit and that's all that remained. WAY too much salt. I should've read the reviews before following recipe and followed Enchilada's suggestion of 1/2 tsp at most. I had to throw the lot away as nobody could eat this. - 24 Feb 2013

    I agree with previous reviewer. Way too salty. A teaspoon of salt? Really? Maldon sea salt is maybe what the writer meant. But table salt, probably quarter of a tsp. A shame. My wee family were looking forward to these. They spat them out. - 02 Apr 2013
