Scotch Pancakes

Serves about 8

125g (4½ oz) plain flour

2 eggs

1 tablespoon caster sugar

½ teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

2 teaspoon baking powder

100ml milk

A little clarified butter or oil for frying

  • Separate the eggs. Place the flour in a bowl with the egg yolks, sugar, pinch of salt, baking powder and cinnamon if using. Whisk to a smooth batter with the milk. In a separate bowl whisk the egg whites to soft peaks and fold them into the batter. Melt a little butter in a non-stick frying pan and fry spoonfuls of the batter. As soon as the pancakes are bubbling, part-set and golden underneath, turn them with a palette knife and cook until set and brown on the other side. Delicious spread with butter or with a butterscotch sauce for a treat.
