200 g flour
150 g caster sugar
1/2 cup milk
Mix together the flour and the sugar.
Beat the eggs and add it to the mixture and mix together. You should have a dough type mixture.
Add the milk a little at a time and mix till the mixture has the consistency of double cream.
Heat a non stick frying pan. Brush with a little oil. Ensure that the hob is on medium heat or the pancakes will burn.
Add about two tablespoons of mixture to the pan.
In about two minutes, you will see that there are a few holes that begin to appear on the top of the pancake. This is your cue to flip it over and cook for another two minutes.
I used a fairly wide Tefal non-stick pan so I was able to make about 3 in one go – which is handy when you have 3 very hungry children.
Scotch Pancakes are delicious plain, with chocolate spread, with maple syrup, with fresh cream and jam, with fruit. They are ready in minutes and since you can vary the toppings, the children never get bored.
I make them quite often as the children love them. It is even possible to make them on school days as it does not take long to make at all. Alternatively, you can prepare them before and freeze them. All you need to do then is to microwave them.
Personally, I like to make them fresh as there is nothing like serving up hot pancakes for breakfast and watching the children enjoy them.
