Traditional Scotch pancakes for eating on Shrove Tuesday. Yum! Traditional Scotch pancakes for eating on Shrove Tuesday. Yum!
Number of Servings: 24


    8 oz self-raising flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    2 oz granulated sugar
    1 large egg, beaten
    milk to mix - about 1 cup
    1 tsp rapeseed oil


Lovely for afternoon tea on a weekend. Can be served decadently with fruit and jam and cream too.


1. Sift the flour into a bowl and add the sugar and baking powder.
2. Beat the egg with a little of the milk and add into the dry mixture. Keep adding milk until the batter resembles thick, but not whipped, cream. It should pour slowly off the spoon. You may not need all the milk, or you may need a little more. Stir in the oil.
3. Heat a non-stick crepe pan, traditional girdle or heavy frying pan. Spray and wipe the pan with non-stick spray or you can wipe it with a piece of kitchen towel dipped lightly in oil or margarine. It is important not to leave any grease on the hot surface or the pancakes will scorch.
4. Drop tablespoonfuls of batter onto the hot pan and watch carefully. They should not sizzle too much. When bubbles appear on the surface and just begin to burst, turn the pancakes over and cook the other side.
5. Keep the cooked pancakes warm wrapped in a clean tea towel while the others are cooking.
6. Serve buttered or with maple syrup and bananas or any way you like your pancakes.
