Now retired, every now and again I like to have a more lazy than normal morning, and have started making these on an occasional basis!
You will need:
100g self-raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp of sugar
I have since been playing about making with Cups so I don't have to get the scales out, and have now made this with just under a cup of flour. I then added the egg and some milk. Then just added milk to make the mixture and didn't measure milk at all. I also only added a teaspoon of sugar.
Optional to add:
1 tsp cinammon
Banana (mashed) - I had one that was going in the bin.
Optional to serve:
Get all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix together, I initially used 1 tbsp of each dark muscavado sugar and 1 demerara, I would stick to the lighter sugar next time as it made the mix too dark for my liking, especially as I added cinnamon.
Add some fruit if you fancy, or leave plain and serve later. I like to add some blueberries :)
Get your pan hot, you can fry in butter/oil, I just dry fried mine, I like to save a few calories here and there!
Add a big spoonful, and let it settle in the pan on its own, it should make a rough round. If it is too thick you can always add a drop of milk to the remaining mix. I turned my heat down to let them cook through.
I made 6 - ate 2 and have frozen the rest, they are fine from the freezer - although I do pop them in a dry frying pan to crisp up.
