To make the Breakfast Pancakes

  1. Mix the self raising flour, baking powder and caster sugar together in a large bowl.
  2. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture with a spoon, then add the egg and milk. Whisk together using a balloon whisk or electric mixer until you have a smooth batter.
  3. Heat a large pan and melt a little butter or oil to stop the pancakes from sticking.

Top Tips

  • Delicious served with berries and maple syrup, or for a treat you could serve them with grilled bacon and a drizzle of maple syrup.
  • Can also be served cold with butter and jam and eaten as a finger food.
  • The pancakes can be frozen for up to 1 month. Separate each pancake with baking paper and place in an airtight container or wrap with cling film. When you’re ready to eat them, warm them from frozen in a toaster on a low setting.
  • To increase the energy content, you could use fortified milk or stir a tablespoon of double cream into the batter.
