Potato Pancakes for Pancake Day ...

This morning we had pancakes for breakfast. Potato pancakes to be precise. It was a dry run ahead of Pancake Day on Tuesday.

I'm not mad keen about sweet things, so you can hold back on the maple syrup, but I do like savoury pancakes, and when you combine them with some smoked salmon, a poached egg and a dollop of sour cream, you're heading in the direction of a pretty classy breakfast.


Just read on for my recipe ...


Ingredients for 6 (10 cm diameter) pancakes:

350 g boiled potatoes (a great way to use up left-overs from last night's dinner)
knob of butter
75 g of self raising flour
2 medium eggs - beaten with a fork
150 ml milk


Method:




1. Mash the boiled potatoes with the butter. Season.
2. Sift and then mix in the flour.
3. Gradually stir in the beaten egg and milk until you have a smooth batter.
4. Leave the batter to rest for at least half an hour.
5. Heat a frying pan to a medium high heat with a dash of olive oil to keep the pancakes from sticking.
6. Spoon out 2 tablespoonfuls of the batter for a 10cm diameter pancake, and cook for a few minutes.
7. Flip to cook on the other side. I found it better to do this using an egg flip as these pancakes are a little heavier than the normal run-of-the-mill pancakes.
8. Store your pancakes on a warm plate in a low oven until you're ready to go with whatever else you've got lined up to eat them with. Smoked salmon, a poached egg and a dollop of sour cream slide down really well as accompaniments.
9. Enjoy!


Happy Pancake Day for Tuesday!
