American breakfast pancakes

When five of my girl friends came for brunch on Sunday, I treated them to nice bread rolls, oeufs en cocotte and american pancakes with maple syrup. The pancake recipe is from Nigella’s book How to be a domestic goddess, and they are delicious. Serve with maple syrup (mandatory) and crispy bacon (optional).

American breakfast pancakes, serves 6

225 g plain flour

1 tbsp baking powder

a pinch of  salt

1 tsp sugar

2 eggs, beaten

30 g melted butter

300 ml milk

butter for frying

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Beat the eggs in another bowl and add to the flour mixture. Add the milk bit by bit and lastly the butter. Transfer to a jug and fry in butter until golden on both sides. Serve with maple syrup and maybe crispy bacon.

  1. I’m ashamed to admit, being a food blogger, that I had some of these yesterday out of a packet :(. But maybe now I’ll try making them, they look delicious.
