Oaty pancakes
  • ¾ cup cold porridge (approx)
  • 1-2 eggs (usually 1 will do)
  • 1.5 cups self raising flour
  • Milk (half cup approx.)
  • Butter or oil for frying
  1. Sift flour into a bowl.
  2. Make a well in the flour and break the egg or eggs into the well.
  3. Slowly mix the egg to incorporate the flour into it. Eventually it will be quite a thick batter without all the flour being mixed in.
  4. Start to add the milk to the batter, incorporate slowly mixing the it into the batter and picking up the flour as you mix it in. Keep adding milk and mixing until all the flour is incorporated.
  5. Once the flour is incorporated tip the porridge into the batter and mix through. It doesn’t matter if you use a bit more or a bit less. Gently mix it into the batter. You may choose to add a splash more of milk to get a consistency you are happy with.
  6. Drop spoonfuls into a heated frying pan and cook like pikelets. Turn when you can see popped bubbles on the surface.
  7. Serve with lemon and sugar, or with any other favourite pancake topping.
  8. For other oaty based recipes, why not try these banana biscuits with date and oats.
