Mum's breakfast-in-bed pancake stacks

No comments:

These bad boys are the real deal. They are quick, tasty and everyone's favourite. You can whip them up in a few seconds, cook them in melting butter and drizzle with syrup, topping them off with lashings of fresh berries and extra syrup if your feeling naughty.

 (If you are feeling super cheeky, throw in some chocolate chips to the batter too!) 

Mum used to make these up for me when I was little for post sleepover breakfasts they were always a real treat and went down a storm and they still always do now when we have friends staying, years later. 

For these scotch pancake stacks for a large basket full of pancakes you will need...
200 g flour
1 tbsp caster sugar
1.5 tsp cinnamon - the sweeter you like your pancakes the more generous you can be!
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp melted real* butter (with a little extra for frying)
a pinch of salt
1 egg
300-500ml milk
To start, mix all the dry ingredients together, once all well combined add in the egg and the milk, keep whisking untill all combine together and you have a nice batter.
Heat up a pan with some real* butter and dollop spoonfuls of batter.
* I say real, because you want the good stuff, the full fat full cream, full taste real butter  and sometimes spread doesn quite cut it.
To get round spoonfuls pour the batter from the tip of the spoon and for oval shaped pancakes pour from the side.
Keep going untill all your batter is used up and keep warm in a basket in the oven untill everyone is ready to tuck in.
Stack 'em high, drizzle with syrup and top with fresh berries... delcious.
