Welsh Pancakes Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 12

175 g/6 oz/1.5 cups plain (all-purpose) flour
2.5 ml/0.5 tsp cream of tartar
2.5 ml/0.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
50 g/2 oz caster (superfine) sugar
25 g/1 oz/2 tbsp butter or margarine

1 egg, beaten
120 ml/4 fl oz/0.5 cup milk
2.5 ml/0.5 tsp vinegar
Oil for greasing

Method:

Mix together the dry ingredients and stir in the sugar. Rub in the butter or margarine and make a well in the centre. Mix in the egg and just enough of the milk to make a thin batter. Stir in the vinegar. Heat a griddle or heavy-based frying pan (skillet) and grease it lightly. Drop large spoonfuls of batter into the pan and fry (saute) for about 3 minutes until golden on the underside. Turn and cook the other side for about 2 minutes. Serve hot and buttered.
