3 tbs Pixley Berries Blackcurrant Cordial

25g unsalted melted butter

75g Blackcurrants

Method:

  • Sift the flour with a pinch of salt into a medium-size bowl and make a well in the middle.

 

  • Mix in the milk and 100ml of water, break the eggs into the well and whisk slowly. Whisk whilst adding in the milk and water.

 

  • Sift the flour and whisk into the mixture until smooth.

 

  • Add 3 tbs of Pixley Berries Blackcurrant Cordial and mix.

 

  • Leave to stand for 30 mins.

 

  • Heat 1-2 tbs of oil in a large pan.

 

  • When hot add spoonfuls of batter using a ladle and swirl until the bottom of the pan is coated.

 

  • When bubbles start to appear in the batter add in a handful of blackcurrants and cook for 2 mins until golden brown on each side.

 

  • Place between two plates to keep warm and repeat until all the batter has been used.

 

  • Fold each pancake into quarters to serve and add a drizzle of the cordial to the outside of the plate. Scatter with blackcurrants and serve with a glass of iced Pixley.
