Shrove Tuesday approaches and we have a tried and trusted pancake recipe for you.  You will need:
1 egg, beaten,
200g wheat or spelt flour,
A pinch of salt,
200ml milk,
A small amount of oil for frying.

Beat the egg, add the milk and whisk together.  Then whisk in the sifted flour and salt.  You now have a pancake batter – easy eh?

Lightly oil a frying pan and heat.  Once the pan is good & hot, spoon in just enough batter to coat the base of the pan.  The pancake will only take a couple of minutes to cook.  As the first side begins to cook, you should be able to slide the pancake around.  Once its moving freely, flip it over to cook the second side.  Serve with the traditional lemon juice & sugar, maple syrup or agave syrup.  Don’t worry of the first one doesn’t work – keep going there’s plenty of batter.

If you want a gluten free version, just replace the flour with Doves Gluten Free flour  and a teaspoon of gluten free baking powder.  Add an extra beaten egg and an extra splash of milk as the gluten free version benefits from being a slightly looser mixture.  Follow all other instructions as above.

If you don’t have time to make your own batter we have a lovely Hale & Hearty organic gluten free pancake mix in stock which works really well.
