Pancakes (or drop scones)

This is how Mum always makes pancakes so I'm continuing the tradition. Apparently pancakes mean different things to people in different countries but Mum told me that this recipe is for something which is called called drop scone in some places.

I prefer to eat them hot, with butter and sugar but you can also make a batch and eat them later.

Ingredients (for base)


  1. Whisk all the ingredients together until you have a smooth runny mixture
  2. Heat a non-stick frying pan to a medium heat, add a drop of butter and wipe around with a piece kitchen roll, to grease it
  3. Using a large spoon, drop some of the mixture into the centre of the pan, leaving it to spread out into a circle
  4. When bubbles form and start to burst, turn the pancake over
  5. Leave to cook for about the same length of time as cooking the first side took, then remove from pan and place on cooling rack
