The perfect pancake is an elusive creature, every region has it's own unique take on this simple to make tea time treat.
Scotch pancakes or drop Scones as they are sometimes known are delicious served hot from the girdle, these mouthwatering treats are a particular favorite of mine as my Mother made them regularly.
4oz Self Raising Flour
A pinch of Salt
2oz Caster Sugar
Milk to mix - approx 4 tablespoons
How to make the perfect Pancake:
1. Mix the flour, salt and sugar in a suitable bowl, add the egg and gradually beat in the milk to make a thick batter.
2. Bake the pancakes 2 or 3 at a time by dropping spoonfuls of the mixture on a hot, well-greased griddle.
3. Enjoy your freshly made pancakes with butter or jam
