Pancake Day Recipe from FoodCycle Monkchester

To celebrate Pancake Day 2021, our lovely volunteer Elena Kassis at FoodCycle Monkchester Road has kindly shared her failsafe American pancake recipe which has been tried and tested on our Newcastle guests. She suggests serving with maple syrup and fresh blackberries but feel free to use any other leftover fruit you fancy… ⁠

1 1/2 tsp baking powder⁠
200g self-raising flour ⁠
1bsp golden caster sugar⁠
3 large eggs ⁠
200ml milk⁠
25g melted butter⁠
