With Shrove Tuesday being just around the corner I decided to make some apple pancakes last night as a "practise run".
|Some Scotch Bridget apples for the mix|
I practically grew up on these things as they were quite a regular pudding for us as kids. We loved them and would only stop eating them when the mixture had run out. Sometimes mum would do extra, but somehow we'd still eat the lot!Really simple to make:
4oz of self raising flour
1 tablespoon of caster sugar
1/4 pint of milk
Knob of butter
2 large cooking apples (or in this case three medium ones)
|Mix it all together|
Mix the flour, milk, eggs, butter and sugar together into a thick batter. Then peal, core and grate the apples and add to the mix.
Heat a frying pan until it's really hot and then spoon in the mixture to give yourself tea cake sized pancakes (about three to a pan).
|Fry them up using only a tiny amount of oil in a non stick pan|
Serve with a little golden syrup on top whilst still hot. Or alternatively leave them to go cold and have them in your lunch box the following day!
