Preparation Time: 35 mins
Makes at least 8 pancakes
What you will need:
135g Self-raising flour
1 tsp Baking powder
2 tbsp Caster sugar
1 Large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp Melted butter (cool slightly) or olive oil, plus extra for cooking
½ tsp Salt
200g Strawberries (sliced)
200g Whipped cream
100g Runny honey
100g Icing sugar
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. 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.
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 (½in) 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.
PRESENTATION: Serve the pancakes warm, with a spoonful of whipped cream, a couple of sliced strawberries, a drizzle of runny honey and finish with icing sugar.
Wine match: Beronia Rioja Rosé
Mouth-watering aromas of fresh summer fruits. The palate is dry with delicious fresh and fruity flavours of strawberries, cherries and hints of rose petal.
