We eat pancakes a lot! I find them quick and easy to make if we don’t know what else to have for breakfast. Which is often! I usually have two pans going at a time, to make cooking quicker.
This recipe makes the smaller thicker pancakes that are known in the UK as ‘scotch pancakes’.
225g self-raising flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar
300 ml milk
Mix all the ingredients together. Beat well. Melt a little butter in a frying pan. Drop spoonfuls into the pan to cook. Flip pancakes over when you see bubbles beginning to rise to the surface (a couple of minutes on each side).
Add a spoonful of cocoa powder and a little extra milk to the last bit of mixture to make a few chocolate pancakes too.
Drop the pancake mix into squiggly shapes in the pan to make snake or worm pancakes!
Serve with sugar and lemon, or chocolate spread, or syrup.
I like mine with Marmite, which my kids think is weird!
