No. 142 Ruth’s Pancakes

This is my wife’s family pancake recipe. Pancakes were a simple supper fare on a Sunday evening when you never knew who might appear at the table. You could always make extra or keep a few hidden for breakfast the next day.

Time: 20 minutes

Serves: 3-4, makes 8-10 medium sized pancakes

Difficulty: Straight forward

225g (8oz) of Self Raising Flour

1/2 teaspoon of Cream of Tartar

1/2 teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda

50g (2oz) of Castor Sugar

1 Large Egg

284ml of Milk

1 tablespoon of Vegetable oil

1. Mix together all the dry ingredients.

2. Whisk in egg and most of the milk. Whisk to desired consistently adding small amounts of milk to achieve – a thinner batter will make thinner pancakes, too thick and they may not cook well through. Whisk in the oil.

3. Heat a non-stick frying pan to low-medium heat. Test a small amount of the batter cooking for 1-2 minutes on one side till bubbles form and flip and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes till brown on each side.

4. Dependant on how your first pancake has came out adjust the heat of the pan if needed. Then continue cook the rest of the pancakes as per step 3.

5. If serving right away keep warm in the oven till all the pancakes are ready.
