The UK hit -10 degrees last night- needless to say it was freezing this morning. I had to bribe myself to get out from under the duvet by resolving to make bacon and scotch pancakes. This is my first time at cooking this dish. I ate it for the first time last year. After mentioning I was making them on twitter and posting a picture, I received quite a few comments, so here is the recipe I used :)
Preparation time: 2 minutes
Cooking time: (each around 1 minute, collectively around 10 minutes)
Bacon (I used unsmoked back bacon and trim the rinds)
1/4 pint of milk
Pinch of salt
120g Self Raising Flour
30g caster sugar
Butter for pan
Maple syrup (optional)
Whisk the egg and milk together, then add flour (sift if needed), sugar and salt. Turn on heat under pan an put a little butter in the bottom. Turn on grill and leave bacon to cook.
Once pan is hot enough, spoon a little of the mixture into a round. Once the mixture starts bubbling, use a spatula/slice to flip it over. after about 10 seconds this side should be cooked. Put some kitchen roll on a plate and put the bacon/pancakes on as cooked. I always to this to take off any excess fat.
Eat with maple syrup as desired. I normally have a nice glass of orange juice to break down the grease.
Perfect warm brunch breakfast! Quick to make and a departure from a full English or porridge, but just as warm! You can pre-make the batter and store in the fridge overnight to speed up things in the morning.
