Traditional Welsh Pancakes
Vicki Butts (lazyme)
Welsh pancakes, known as crempog in North Wales, are always lavished in salty butter and stacked in a pile to cut like a cake.
How to Make Traditional Welsh Pancakes
- Beat everything together to a thick batter except the bicarbonate of soda and vinegar.
- Heat a griddle or frying pan to smoking hot and then add the bicarbonate of soda and vinegar to the batter.
- Drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the surface and allow to turn golden on both sides. What size you make them is up to you.
- Spread each with lots of salted butter and stack in a pile before cutting in thick wedges to eat.
Vinegar helps bring lift and lightness to batter; it was used in Britain as a raising aid to Yorkshire pudding when eggs were rationed.
