Granny Wallace's Scotch Pancakes

Tuesday 17th February 2015

Our Eilidh's Gran kindly made us a batch of her famous pancakes for pancake day today. When we found out the recipe is great for using up milk which is nearly past its best, we couldn't resist sharing it. 

ingredients (makes approx 16)

170g self raising flour

60g sugar

1tsp baking powder

1 egg



Combine all the dry ingedients in a bowl and make a well in the middle. 

Crack the egg into the well and stir to combine. 

Add milk and beat well into a smooth batter, being careful not to make it too runny. 

Heat a flat griddle, or non stick frying pan and grease lightly with some butter. 

Using a tablespoon drop four individual spoons worth of batter onto the pan.

As soon as the batter starts to bubble turn the pancakes over and cook until they are firm to touch. 

Remove the pancakes from the pan and wrap in a teatowel whilst you cook the rest. Then smother in butter and jam...YUM!
