Scotch pancakes with fruit

image

When I was younger we would always buy our scotch pancakes from the supermarket not knowing how easy they were to make at home. The ones we used to buy were always quite stodgy and slightly too greasy for my liking. Though a novelty to me at the time I used to cover them with sugar and squeeze a lot of fresh lemon juice over them

They can be toasted too but I never liked them that way.

Now such a simple treat I make for my boys and my husband especially on weekends. My husband will drown them in sticky honey ~

Whilst my little one and me will stick to classic lemon and sugar.

However recently I also serve fruit with them to make me feel less guilty! Strawberries go really well with the mellow cakey texture and adds a little oomph to the pancakes!

I don’t fry them in butter but a little olive oil to keep them healthy. Definitely a great breakfast to start off your busy day!

INGREDIENTS

125g flour
1½ tsp baking powder
1 egg beaten
280-300ml milk
1 tbsp sugar
Olive oil for frying

METHOD

• Mix the dry ingredients together and then add the egg and milk. Whisk till you get a smooth batter

• Heat a little oil in a non stick frying pan on a medium to low heat and pour in a small ladleful of batter into the centre. Wait for a the batter to set and a few bubbles to appear

• Flip with a spatula and cook until both sides are golden brown
