Traditional Scotch Pancakes

These are the traditional Scotch Pancakes. Very easy to make and ideal for Pancake Tuesday. I like them served with just a little bit of butter.

traditional Scotch pancakes recipe

Ingredients – Scotch Pancakes

  • 8oz self raising flour
  • 1 1/2 oz caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 – ½ pint milk Approximately


  1. Sieve the flour into a bowl and add the sugar.
  2. Whisk the egg with about half of the milk.
  3. Make a well in the centre, stir in the egg mixture and whisk together to make a batter with the consistency of thick cream. Mix quickly and lightly, don’t over beat the mixture.
  4. Add more milk if required. You can always test one first and then adjust the batter.
  5. Heat your pan on a medium heat and grease with a little butter,
  6. Drop spoonfuls onto the hot greased, non-stick pan and when bubbles form and start to burst turn over and cook on the other side until golden.
  7. Adjust the heat on the pan and keep it clean between batches with dry kitchen roll.
  8. For banana pancakes you can add a large mashed banana to the batter with ½ a teaspoon of cinnamon. Cook as above.
  9. For blueberry pancakes you can add a handful of blueberries to the batter or simply drop some onto the pancakes as they cook before turning over.

Mary Ann was a joy to watch in the kitchen as she demonstrated another tasty Lemon and Raspberry layer cake complete with Swiss Meringue icing, it was beautiful and one I think I might even attempt myself.
