Pancakes cooked on a girdle. Delicious with butter and jam.
125g SR flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 egg beaten very well with 1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon golden syrup
Milk to mix
Put your girdle or frying pan onto the hotplate to heat.
Sieve the flour and baking powder into a bowl, drop in the golden syrup and egg.
Mix together and add the milk – maybe half a cup – but enough to make the consistency like thick cream.
Drop the mixture onto the hot, lightly greased girdle (or frying pan) in tablespoonfuls.
When the bubbles erupt and burst (as above), flip over with a palette knife and cook until done.
Place the pancakes on a wire rack between a folded clean tea towel and repeat until all the mixture is used.
