  • 55 g flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 70 ml buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • a little sunflower oil


  • Mix together the flour, salt, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder in a bowl
  • Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and beat in the egg, followed by the buttermilk, then enough cold water to form a smooth, thick batter
  • Set a large non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and rub with a little oil. Once it's hot, spoon a blob of batter into the pan. Repeat until you have 4 pancakes, each about 7cm in diameter
  • After a minute, small bubbles will start to form on the wet surface of each pancake - this means they are starting to cook underneath. Flip them over and cook for a further minute.
  • Transfer to a plate and cover with a clean tea towel while you continue to cook the remaining mixture.
