I know this isn’t a complicated recipe but I finally got around to making American style pancakes. Oh, oh, oh, sooo good. I had forgotten how nice pancakes made with flour taste I have been using a recipe made with almond and coconut flour and convinced myself they were as good as proper pancakes, now I know how wrong I was. These are delicious straight from the pan or with sugar free maple syrup, or yoghurt and berries, or butter (I have eaten them with all the above)! 1 cup ultra-fine fibre flour 2 tablespoons of sweetener 2 teaspoons baking powder Pinch salt 1 and a quarter cups milk or almond milk plus extra to get correct consistency if batter is too thick 2 tablespoons melted butter 1 large egg Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl. Whisk together the cup of milk, butter and egg. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, adding extra milk to get a thick batter but do not over mix. Fry in a non stick pan smeared with butter, oil or a bit of both, using about 20ml batter per pancake. When bubbles appear and they seem firm enough to handle flip over.

Attempted a Yorkshire Pudding as per the recipe on the website for the first time. The result had the texture of a cake rather than a traditional pudding as pictured below. I wonder if this is the expected result or if I did something wrong? I did deviate from the recipe in a few ways. Firstly I did add the optional yeast (Hovis fast action bread yeast) and I did not add the salt to the mixture straight away but gave the yeast a little time without it first. The second thing was that I made the batter some time before it was needed so the yeast was bubbling away for about an hour first. Have these deviations resulted in more of a Yorkshire cake than a pudding?
