This recipe makes around 24 pancakes
2 oranges (save a little zest for sprinkling)
A little Milk
175g self raising flour
1 level tsp baking powder
40g caster sugar
1 Large egg
A little oil for greasing
Butter or Golden syrup to serve
1/ Grate the zest from the oranges and set aside, and then squeeze the juice. Pour the juice into a measuring jug and top up to 200ml with milk.
2/ Measure the flour, baking powder, sugar, and orange zest into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the egg and half the orange juice and milk mixture. Beat well to make a smooth, thick batter and then beat in enough of the remaining orange juice and milk to give a better consistency of thick cream
3/ Heat a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and grease with a little oil. Drop the mixture in dessertspoonful’s onto the hot pan, spacing them well apart to allow the mixture to spread.
4/ When bubbles appear on the surface, turn the pancakes over with a spatula and cook on the other side for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack and cover them with a clean tea towel to keep them soft. Cook the remaining mixture in the same way. Serve immediately, with butter and Golden syrup, and orange zest if liked.
