I have to admit, very ashamedly, that in the past I've bought an American box mix from Selfridges where you just add an egg but really it was time to pack that in and make my own. It's not difficult is it?!
135g self raising flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp caster sugar
2 tbsp melted butter (cooled)
Makes approx 6
Mix all the ingredients together with a whisk to form a thick batter with no lumps. Leave to rest for a few minutes
Heat a non stick pan to medium and add a little oil dabbing it around with kitchen roll. Add dollops of batter to the pan and leave to cook on one side for a few minutes, them flip and cook on the other side. They should be fluffy in the middle and about 1cm high.
I had mine with crispy bacon and maple syrup. Like you should!
