Day 6 - Scotch Pancakes for Tea

With Saturday night looming, and nothing on the box but Doctor Who, we decided to have a girlie supper in front of the TV, and we opted for the ulitmate comfort food, light and fluffy pancakes and chocolate spread!

I call these scotch pancakes to differentiate between them and crepe suzette pancakes.

They are so quick and easy to do, just smear them with chocolate spread or jam, or the Amercian way, with Maple syrup.

In a bowl whisk together 4 heaped tablespoons of self raising flour, 1 teaspoon sugar and 1 egg - this the amount I use per person so for 2 people double the amounts, for 3 triple them, etc etc etc. Gradually stir in enough milk to make the batter runny but still thick - think meringue consistency.

Take a large flat bottomed frying pan, and put over a gentle heat, brush the base of the pan with a vegetable oil, or butter. Dollop in q table spoon of mix at a time, once you see the bubbles rising through the batter, flip to cook the other side. Only a minute or so each side, then spread lavishly with something delicious, sticky and sweet.
