This came about due to the lack of baking powder and plain flour in the Scottish Mum Household. The boys wanted pancakes, but I knew I wouldn’t be able to make them rise like fluffy pancakes, so I bit the bullet and went for self raising flour ones. They are more of a consistency like crepe style pancakes than the traditional ones that we are used to up here in Scotland, but they kept the boys bellies full.
Crepe Style Pancakes
- 2 Medium Eggs
- 30 g Butter or Margarine
- 300 ml Milk
- 250 g Self Raising Flour
- 30 g Sugar
- Fold the ingredients until the flour is incorporated. Then whisk the ingredients briskly until it forms a smooth batter consistency.
- Heat a thick bottomed pan on the hob. I don't use oil to cook my pancakes, but some do. I keep the temperature low, and cook slowly.
- When the top of the pancake mix begins to show bubbles, it's time to flip it over and cook the other side. As I don't use oil, the pancakes don't have that smooth single colour, but they do have significantly less calories than an oil cooked pancake.
- We get around 15 medium sized pancakes from this recipe. It will depend on how large you make yours.
