We have been having sweet pancakes with chestnut flour as a base and Anna has been challenging me to come up with a savoury alternative. We had some delicious savoury pancakes for breakfast this morning and it’s worth trying if you are tired of sweet pancakes.
What do I need to make it?
- 1 cup chestnut flour
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 egg
- 3 small green chillies chopped
- 1 small shallot finely chopped
- Handful grated Cheddar cheese
- Handful grated Red Leicester cheese
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- Butter to cook
- Salt and pepper to taste
How many will I make?
6-8 depending on size
How do I make it?
Use a whisk to mix the flour, egg and milk. Once blended add the onions, chopped chilli and cheeses with a pinch of salt and pepper. Heat a frying pan and add a knob of butter, pour in a ladle of batter and cook on both sides to a nice golden brown colour. Enjoy on its own – we want to try it with some chilli jam or Thai sweet chilli sauce next time.
