1 tbsp golden syrup
Warm these together to melt the butter.
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
¼ cup sugar
1 beaten egg
1 cup milk – plus more if needed.
Sift flour, baking powder and baking soda into a large bowl. Add sugar. Make a well in the centre and mix in the beaten egg. Then add the golden syrup and butter followed by the milk. Mix well and you should have a mixture which will easily drop off a spoon. If not add more milk (I added about 2 tbsp more).
Use an electric frying pan if you have one or use a frying pan or griddle pan and heat it to a medium temperature. Grease with a little butter then drop a tablespoon of the mixture onto the pan leaving room for it to spread. When little bubbles begin to appear on the surface flip over and cook until golden.
Serve immediately to hungry children as they are best hot. If you are taking them somewhere to enjoy later smear each one with a little jam and top with a dab of whipped cream.
