It's no secret that I'm slightly obsessed with finding the perfect pancake recipe so when Sue kindly made me the most amazing pancakes on my visit to Norfolk, I just had to find out exactly what her secret is...
These are great to serve with maple syrup, honeycomb or blackberry butter or fresh blue berries in season. We had ours with Pancetta.
You will need:
- 4oz ( 100g ) plain flour or spelt flour
- 1 level tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1 half level tsp cream of tartar
- pinch of fine sea salt
(Sieve all above together)
- 1 oz of caster sugar
- 1 Egg
- 125 ml of full fat milk or buttermilk
A few drops of vanilla essence
Put all dry ingredients into a bowl. Then mix together the egg, vanilla and milk with a fork.
Add to the dry ingredients and beat all together with a wooden spoon.
Place spoonfuls of the batter on to a griddle pan (smooth) or a lightly greased frying pan.
Cook until bubbles burst on the top , then flip over until cooked.
Keep cooked pancakes warm wrapped in a clean cloth until all are cooked.
