Muddy Makes: Fluffy pancakes

Ah, pancake day. It's really creped up on us this year, hasn't it! Don't fancy trying something new - what about this tried and tested fluffy pancake recipe?

Love pancakes as much as we do at Muddy Cornwall? How about an old favourite this year – tried and tested fluffy pancakes from Rupert Cooper of Philliegh Way Cookery School.

Rupert’s fluffy pancakes

You’ll need:

  • 135g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 130ml milk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 TBSP butter 

Method:

1. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.

2. Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and, using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing. Let the batter stand for a few minutes.

3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. When it’s melted, add a ladle of batter (or two if your frying pan is big enough to cook two pancakes at the same time).

It will seem very thick but this is how it should be. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about 1cm thick.

Repeat until all the batter is used up. You can keep the pancakes warm in a low oven, but they taste best fresh out the pan.

Serve with spicy merguez sausages, roasted tomato & scrambled eggs! Or maple syrup!
