Irish Pancakes

Lynn Clay

By

This recipe is from Irelandseye.com. These are also called Scotch Pancakes in Northern Ireland. They must be cooked as soon as possible after mixing, as the acid in the Pancakes, buttermilk, starts to react with the baking soda at once. For that reason the griddle or pan should be heated before combining the ingredients.

Griddle

Ingredients

2 c
plain flour
1/2 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
sugar
1 large
egg
1 c
buttermilk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl.
2
Make a well in the middle with a wooden spoon and add the egg.
3
Break the yolk and pour in the buttermilk, mixing quickly to a thick batter.
4
Do not beat, as this would develop the gluten in the flour and prevent the pancakes from rising.

Fry in large dollops on a lightly-greased, hot griddle or heavy frying-pan.

Thickly spread with melting butter and syrup or jam.
