Let's Cook with Meg and Ted

Soda pancakes

1.5 cups milk
0.5 cup buttermilk
125 g butter
2 cups plain flour
3 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon salt (less if you are using salted butter)
butter for frying

Heat the milk and buttermilk gently until the mixture is hot - don't scald it. Stir in the butter until it melts, then remove from the heat and cool to lukewarm.

Sift together the flour, sugar, soda and salt. Stir in the warm milk mixture to just combine. The batter should still be a little lumpy.

Heat a little butter in a heavy frying pan. Spoon large tablespoons of batter into the hot pan and cook for about 1 minute, until bubbles appear across the surface of the pancakes. Flip to the other side and cook until golden brown.

These are very buttery, so serve with a pile of berries, with thick Greek yoghurt and maple syrup offered on the side. Serves 4-6.
