A slightly different blog post from me today but I couldn’t resist sharing this recipe with you. Scotch pancakes are my all time favourite thing to make for breakfast and I really ought to make them more often. They are super easy to prepare and cook.

This recipe makes approx. 10 pancakes so double the quantity for more (leftovers never go a miss).


4oz Self-raising flour

2oz Caster Sugar

1/2 tsp Baking powder

1 Egg

A little milk for mixing

Butter for the pan

You will need a mixing bowl, a hand whisk, a frying pan and a ladle.

1. Sift the flour into the mixing bowl and add the sugar and baking powder. Mix together roughly.

2. Add the egg to the mix with a little milk and give it a whisk.

3. Pour in more milk a little at a time, whisking as you go until the mix starts to resemble a thick batter.

4. Heat the frying pan to a medium heat and melt a little butter to coat the pan. Then spoon a dollop of the mixture into the pan to create a circular shaped pancake about the size of a saucer. (Depending on the size of your pan you should be able to cook more than one pancake at a time).

5. When bubbles appear on the surface it’s time to flip it. The pancake should be a light golden brown on both sides. If it’s too dark then turn the heat down a little.

Whilst you are cooking the rest of the pancakes, keep the others warm by placing them in a heat proof dish in the oven at a low temperature.

Now your pancakes are all cooked, top them with whatever you like and enjoy!

Leo thoroughly enjoyed his miniature sized pancakes this morning topped with Nutella, strawberry jam and honey.


Happy cooking and you’re welcome!
