Scottish Pancakes


250 g self-raising flour
50 g caster sugar
300 ml milk
1 egg
Sprinkle of salt
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Butter for oiling the frying pan or griddle


  1. Traditionally, these pancakes would be made on an iron griddle rather than a frying pan. The griddle is a heavy iron plate that holds it’s heat consistently. A think bottomed frying pan would work too, but thin frying pans are likely to give an uneven cooking.
  2. Whisk everything together until the batter is smooth and creamy with no lumps and plenty of air.
  3. Drop spoonfuls of the batter onto the griddle. Wait till you see many bubbles forming on the top of the pan. Resist the temptation to poke at it. Slide a spatula under the pancake and flip. Wait about the same time again then remove the pancake from the pan. Repeat until all the batter has been used up.
