This recipe is so easy that I can’t really understand why I don’t make more pancakes. My Granny Rose always had pancakes ready when we came home from school, and if she had been busy, you could be sure there would be some in the freezer. Incidentally Granny Rose never had a really had a proper recipe for so this is the one from my go-to book.
They are simple, tasty and much better than a chocolate bar for the kids when they fancy a munch(yeah, ok me too!) In other words: the perfect snack!
You will need:
8 tbsp self raising flour
3 tsp(level) baking powder
1 tbsp caster sugar
Pinch of salt
1/4 pint + 5 tbsp of milk(perhaps a little more depending)
Here’s what you do:
- Put the flour, salt, sugar & baking powder in a bowl.
- Crack the egg in
- Add milk
Cook on a med hot girddle or heavy based frying pan until you can see bubble forming on the surface of pancakes(not bursting though). Flip them babies over and continue cooking until golden.
In our house these are generally eaten when cold with butter and jam. Yum!
