The pancakes in the picture in the post below are made using the recipe from Feast:Nigella Lawson. I know the recipe is on her website and I was just going to post a link but I couldn’t find her site this morning…so I thought I’d post an alternative version of breakfast pancakes from Frost Bite: Susan Austin which I occasionally make when I haven’t any banana’s… but then I do keep banana’s frozen in my freezer anyway, a tip I got from one of Nigella’s books and from Frost Bite… I also tend to keep frozen pancakes in my freezer (plain, banana, gingerbread, whatever) so that I can be an indulgent mummy even when i don’t get a lie in !
240g SR flour
100g brown sugar
1.5 tsp ground ginger
1.5 tsp cinnamon
0.5 tsp ground nutmeg
250 ml milk
60g melted butter
1. In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredient. In a jug whisk together the wet ingredients.
2. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir them until they are combined in a smoothish batter – presumably you could also bung them all in a food processor and whizz them together that way.
3. Heat a small amount of oil or butter in a frying pan. Then drop small amounts of batter in the frying pan, should be able to do 3 or 4 in the pan at the same time
4. Cook the pancakes until small bubbles start forming on the surface, then flip the pancakes and cook the otherside for a minute or 2 until golden brown on both sides. Makes about 15
Can be frozen once cool. Defrost in microwave when needed or slowly in fridge if you have the time
