Oaty Pancakes

Oaty-Panckes-280Serve oaty pancakes (or American pancakes) for breakfast or brunch, with juice and coffee. Pour syrup over the pile of buttered pancakes, and serve bacon or sausages alongside if you like.

¾ cup milk
¾ cup rolled oats
1 egg
½ tsp salt
2–3 tbsp sugar
½ cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
25g butter, melted

Pour milk over rolled oats. Add remaining ingredients. Mix with fork (or in a food processor) just enough to combine ingredients. Put spoonfuls on to preheated, greased or sprayed griddle or frypan. Turn spoon for round pancakes.

Turn pancakes as soon as bubbles form and burst in the middle. Slide thin metal blade under pancake and flip it over.

Second side is cooked when centre springs back. Put a dab of butter on cooked surface of several pancakes. Pile up so butter is between pancakes. Pour syrup over just before serving.
