Sunday Morning Pancakes
2 cups SR flour (I like to use 1 cup wholemeal and 1 cup white self raising)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup caster sugar
1 3/4 milk (I use low fat lactose free cos I am lactose intolerant)
75 grams melted butter (I use full fat Nuttelex - dairy free margarine)
Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add the sugar and mix. Whisk the egg and milk together with the cooled butter. Add to the dry ingredients and whisk until smooth.
Heat a small non stick frying pan (grease first if its not non stick) and pour 1/3 cup of mixture into the hot pan. Cook on a medium high heat until bubbles appear on the top. Flip over and cook the other side for less then a minute.
Serve with chopped banana, strawberries or fruit of choice and maple syrup (the real deal not that imitation rubbish!) OR with cream or ice cream for those of you who don't suffer my dairy intolerance!
Makes about 10 large fluffy pancakes....more if you like small dainty pancakes and less if you use wholemeal flour as the mix is thicker.
I freeze the left over pancakes (only two pancake eaters in this household...amazing I know!) with a piece of non greased kitchen paper between them, and then reheat in the microwave. Obviously they are not as nice as fresh, but DS1 enjoys them with strawberry jam and if I use wholemeal flour I justify it by the thought that he is getting some goodness!
This is a Donna Hay recipe that I adapted for my lactose sensitive purposes!
