British Gala Apple Pancakes Recipe


300g self-raising flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 medium eggs
284ml carton buttermilk
4 tbsp milk
85g melted butter
2 British Gala apples, peeled, cored, and grated
A little more butter or sunflower oil, for frying


Mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda, and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Make a well in the centre, then gradually whisk in the eggs, followed by the buttermilk, milk, and melted butter. Once the mixture is smooth, stir in the grated apples.

Melt a little more butter in a non-stick pan or wipe with sunflower oil. When hot, add 1-3 small ladles of batter to the pan to make 1-3 small pancakes (depending on the size of your pan). Cook for 2-3 mins until bubbles appear and the underneath is set and golden. Flip and cook for a few mins more.

Transfer pancakes to a plate, cover with baking parchment, and keep warm in a low oven.

Cook the remaining.
