Traditional Irish Pancakes

As long as I can remember we always loved when pancake Tuesday arrived in February.  It is a age old tradition in Irish households to make pancakes the night before the event of lent. What great excitement when the pan was heated and the batter was ready and we waited patiently for our turn to get the piping hot pancake.  Yum.

100 g / 4oz plain flour
pinch of salt
1 egg
250ml / half pint milk
12g / half oz butter melted

  • Sieve flour & salt into a bowl.
  • Make a well in the centre, break in the egg and add half the milk.
  • Gradually work in the flour and beat until mixture is smooth.
  • Add the remaining milk and melted butter gradually.
  • This amount will make about eight pancakes so we normally double the recipe.
  • Melt a little butter in a small heavy frying pan.
  • Pour enough batter to coat the pan thinly and tilt pan to cover evenly.
  • Toss or turn the pancake and fry on the other side until both sides are golden brown colour.

Enjoy with some freshly squeezed lemon juice, sugar and some double cream.
