Shrove Tuesday

As far as I am concerned Shrove Tuesday Is one of the best days of the year.  Any day which has pancake eating at it's core I am all over!

I have made scotch pancakes since I was a child, my brother and I standing either side of my mother, squabbling over who would get the first one off of the Aga.  Twenty years down the line the only thing that has changed Is that I am now the one whipping them up for family breakfasts, and as the cook it is obligatory to test your food, you wouldn't want to make anyone ill now, would you! 

As a pancake fanatic I like to think I have a pretty killer recipe so for those of you who don't have one then look no further.

For 8-10 pancakes you will need:

115g self raising flour
25g caster sugar
1 free range egg
150ml (1/4 pint) milk

To serve (the world is your oyster):

lemon & sugar (super traditional)
chocolate & banana (very French)
maple syrup & bacon (hello America)
fruit compote & fresh berries (trying to be healthy!)


Place the flour and sugar into a bowl and mix together.  Make a well in the centre and add the egg and half the milk.  Whisk together adding the remainder of the milk gradually to make a smooth batter.

Once combined drop tablespoonfuls onto an oiled/non-stick pan.  Cook one side then flip them over and cook the other.  Keep the cooked pancakes  warm in a clean tea towel.  Once you have cooked all your batter it is time to demolish them with your topping of choice.

What will you be smothering your pancakes in tomorrow morning?
