  • 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk


  • In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and the milk.
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the egg mixture. Whisk until smooth, but thick.
  • Prepare a griddle or frying pan on medium-high heat with a little oil or butter.
  • scotch pancakes are supposed to be smaller than American pancakes so I use a tablespoon to drop heaping spoonful’s of batter on the pan to form pancakes.
  • After about 2 or 3 minutes, when bubbles start to appear on the surface, use a spatula to flip them over.
  • Cook for another minute, until lightly browned.
  • Remove to a plate and cover with a clean dish towel to keep warm while you cook the rest of the pancakes.
