Yesterday I made cinnamon pancakes, testing out a recipe from BBC Good Food. Overall, I would rate them very highly! And two thumbs up from our chief taster too!
My main criticism of the recipe was that the batter was slightly too thin. The cinnamon is a fantastic addition to the batter, though, and makes for incredibly tasty pancakes. I also used chocolate chips to make a super-indulgent dessert. They were fantastic with golden syrup but the apple & pear compote that BBC Good Food recommend looked pretty good too!
* 140g self-raising flour
* 1 tsp ground cinnamon
* 3 tbsp muscovado or brown sugar (I used 2 tbsp of caster sugar instead)
* 1 large egg
* 300ml milk
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 2 tbsp melted butter plus extra for frying
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, sugar and ½ tsp salt. In a jug, whisk the egg, milk, vanilla and melted butter. Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the milk mixture gradually, whisking as you go to make a smooth batter. Ideally, let the mixture stand for 1 hr (or even overnight, covered in the fridge), although you can cook with it straight away.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Melt a knob of butter, then drop in tbsps of the mixture to make pancakes about 10cm across. Cook for 2-3 mins until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip over and cook for 1 min more. Keep each batch warm while you use up the rest of the batter.
