We are big fans of banana and sweet potato pancakes, but sometimes it’s nice just to have the old fashioned kind! This simple scotch pancakes recipe is dead easy, using ingredients you should already have in your cupboard/fridge. They are super delicious and nice and soft for baby. These will also be great for when Pancake Day comes on March 1st.
What you will need to make simple scotch pancakes (makes four medium sized pancakes):
1 egg (whisked until frothy)
80g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
handful of blueberries
1. Crack an egg in a bowl and whisk until frothy.
2. Sift 60g of flour into a bowl and add a teaspoon of baking powder
3. Add the egg to the flour, then pour in the milk slowly, whisking to create a batter.
4. Add any fruit (optional) we used blueberries.
5. Heat some oil in a saucepan on high heat, once melted, reduce the heat to medium.
6. Use half a ladle of batter for each pancake. Once the edges brown, carefully lift using a spatula and flip.
7. Stack them up whilst you make the rest.
Dex ate two of these pancakes easily. I will warn you, the blueberries created a huge mess. He had a bath afterwards but I couldn’t clean the purple stains off his fingernails! Other fruit you can try are strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, soft cooked apple or you could try dried fruit or even savoury items like prawns or chicken! This recipe is really versatile. The world is your oyster.
