INGREDIENTS:

PANCAKE BATTER:

  • 135g/4¾oz plain flour
  • 135ml milk
  • 1 level tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds
  • Zest 1 lemon
  • Zest 1 lime

LEMON, LIME & ELDERFLOWER SYRUP:

  • Juice 1 lemon
  • Juice 1 lime
  • 1-2 tbsp elderflower cordial
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Splash of water

Makes 4 – 5 pancakes

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes

COOKING METHOD:

1. MAKE THE PANCAKE BATTER:

Add the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar to a large bowl and mix together. To this dry mix add the milk, beaten egg and melted butter and mix through until well combined.

To the mix add the zest of the lemon and lime, and add the poppy seeds. Stir through and get ready to cook the pancakes.

2. MAKE THE LEMON, LIME & POPPY SEED PANCAKES:

Place a large frying pan over a low heat and grease lightly with butter. Using a ladle, pour a spoonful of the batter into the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip the pancake over and continue to cook for a further minute until golden. Repeat this process with the rest of the batter. While your pancakes are cooking, move on to making the syrup.

3. MAKE THE SYRUP:

Add the juice of the lemon and lime to a saucepan on a low-medium heat. Add a squeeze of honey, a splash of water and the elderflower cordial to the juice and stir. Simmer for a couple of minutes until the liquid reduces slightly.  This is a very zingy syrup so use sparingly.

4. SERVE UP AND ENJOY:

Stack the pancakes and pour a little of the syrup over them. Serve with a dollop of fresh cream or natural yoghurt. Check out the steps in the video below.

Enjoy 🙂

    Hello, I’d love to do this recipe but I think you forgot to say how much milk is needed! Also I’d like to know if I could eventually replace milk with almond milk ? Thank you 🙂
