The snow is coming down in sheets outside and I find myself wondering what to cook on this cozy morning. I can’t think of anything better than a fluffy stack of oaty pancakes to curl up by the fire with. This recipe was supposed to be one portion, but the pancakes are quite filling so I would make this recipe for 2 people – unless absolutely ravenous!
- 50g self raising flour
- 25g oats
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- a pinch of ground mixed spice (you could use cinnamon if you prefer, or leave plain)
- 50mls milk of your choice
- 10g butter, melted
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon honey
- pinch of salt
- maple syrup, salted butter and fresh berries or other fruit to serve
- Combine the flour, oats, baking powder, salt and mixed spice in a bowl.
- Measure out the milk in a jug and whisk in the egg, honey and melted butter.
- Heat a splash of olive oil and a small knob of butter in a pan over medium heat. Use a large spoon to ladle out the mixture into little disk shapes in the pan. I would say roughly 2 tablespoons per pancake.
- Cook on one side, without moving, for around 45 seconds to a minute. Then carefully slide a spatula underneath and flip. Cook for roughly 30 seconds on the other side and remove to a plate.
- I cook mine in batches to give the pancakes enough room in the pan, as they will expand a little. You might need to add more butter to the pan between batches. The pan may also be hotter as you go on so the pancakes in the later batches may take less time to cook. Be careful not to burn!
- Stack the pancakes on a plate, top with a small knob of salted butter and a splash of maple syrup. Serve with any fresh berries or fruit you like.
