HOW TO MAKE THIS RECIPE
HOW TO MAKE SCOTCH PANCAKES
Follow this simple Scotch Pancake recipe for the ultimate treat.
- Make the passion fruit curd first. Beat the egg in a bowl and then pass it through a sieve set over another bowl to remove the stringy bits.
- Halve the passion fruit, scoop out the pulp and juice with a teaspoon to a bowl – you should have 75ml (3floz).
- Heat the butter and Tate & Lyle Golden Granulated Sugar in a small non-stick pan over a moderate heat until the sugar has dissolved, which will take 4-5 minutes, stirring to combine. Off the heat, quickly stir in the egg and passion fruit. Return to a low heat and stir continuously with a wooden spoon for about 4-5 minutes, until lightly thickened, but don’t let the mixture boil. Pour into a bowl to cool.
- Make the pancakes next. Sift the flour, cream of tartar, bicarbonate of soda and salt together in a bowl, and make a well in the middle. Whisk the milk and egg together in a jug and then gradually whisk this into the flour mixture to make a smooth, thick batter.
- Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat. Rub a piece of kitchen paper with a little butter and smear this over the pan. Drop 4 generous tablespoons of the batter on the hot pan and leave to cook until large bubbles form on the top, for about 1-2 minutes, then flip them over with a palette knife and cook until golden. Transfer to a clean tea towel to keep soft and warm whilst you cook the rest, greasing the pan each time.
- Serve the warm pancakes drizzled with the passion fruit curd and berries and sprinkle with some Tate & Lyle Golden Granulated Sugar.
- If you prep a batter mix the night before, this scotch pancake recipe can be a quick and easy breakfast for you in the morning when you're in a little bit of a rush!
- Feel free to make the pancakes as large as you wish, but remember that the bigger the pancake, the more difficult it can be to cook it evenly.
- You won’t need to use much butter for greasing the pan, use as much as you would if you were greasing a baking tin.
