  • 125g Plain Organic Flour from Dunany Flour

  • 2 Fresh Free Range Eggs from the Happy Hens at Magner's Farm, Co. Tipperary

  • 300ml Whole Irish Milk from Clóna Dairy, Co. Cork

  • Butter for frying

  • Pinch of Salt


  • Sieve the flour and salt into a large bowl.
  • Make a well in the centre of the flour, break in the eggs and add 100ml of the milk.
  • Beat well either by hand or with an electric mixer, gradually pouring in the rest of the milk and drawing in the flour to make a smooth batter.
  • Leave the batter to stand for about half an hour.
  • Heat some butter in a pan. When the pan is hot, give the batter a stir before pouring a thin layer onto the pan.
  • Fry until golden brown and bubbles appear. Turn and fry the other side until brown also.
  • Choose your topping! Skelligs chocolate drops, Wild About Strawberry Syrup, jam from Juicy Jams or keep it simple with lemon and sugar.
  • Enjoy!
