Scottish Pancakes

I don’t think any Scottish foodie blog would complete without these delicious pancakes. You can serve them simple with melted butter or jam or for that special treat with some crispy bacon and eggs on the top.

I love these thick pancakes cooked up fresh in the morning, especially at the weekend when things are a little slower going in the Milne hoosie! They go really well with some delicious fresh fridge jam or in the Winter with some Summer berry jam that was made in the Summer months.

I love to pop the extra ones in the kids lunch boxes or in a wee paper bag for school snacks. Folded over with some jam in the middle. They make the perfect treat!

These Scottish pancakes really couldn’t be any easier to make than they are. You can also make up the dry ingredients ahead of time and store in the larder cupboard, adding the wet ingredients when you are ready to make a batch up.

I don’t personally do this as I find them super easy to make as it is but it is something handy to have in the cupboard for the kids with a little instruction explaining how to make them. My daughter loves to make pancakes, its her go to if she doesn’t like my evening meals ha ha ha

Scottish Pancakes Recipe

250g of self raising flour

30g of golden caster sugar

1/4 tsp of salt

2 medium eggs

Add all of the dry ingredients together and mix together.

Whisk all of the wet ingredients together in a jug and pour into the middle of the dry ingredients.

Whisk together to create a nice thick batter.

Grease a pancake maker or flat griddle and drop a couple of tbsp of batter at a time onto the surface to form your pancakes.

Cook on a medium heat until tiny bubbles form on the surface and flip.

When lightly browned they are ready to serve. Serve up with some jam, butter or other lovely toppings.
