Proper (Scotch) Pancakes

None of your crêpy English nonsense here 😉

(makes 12 – enough for 2/3)

115g self-raising flour

1 tbsp caster sugar

1 egg

150ml milk

Knobs of butter for melting

Honey / Syrup / Jam to serve

  1. Sift the flour and sugar into a bowl; make a deep dent in the mixture and add the egg and a little of the milk.
  2. Beat the egg and milk with a wooden spoon, gradually mixing in the flour and adding milk until you’ve got a smooth, thick batter.
  3. Use a pastry brush to brush melted butter onto a large frying pan and heat on medium heat.
  4. Drop tablespoons of batter onto the hot pan, leaving space between them.
  5. Cook for a few minutes until the surface starts to bubble and the bottoms are browned, then flick them over to cook the other side.
