For extra tasty pancakes this year, try this easy recipe for sloe gin pancakes. The sloe gin adds richness and a lovely burst of berry flavour.
We've opted for Addingham Sloe Gin because its rounded marzipan aromas work beautifully in baking.
Sift the flour into a bowl. Make a well in the middle. Mix the milk with 3tbsp of sloe gin and 1tsp of oil. Break the eggs into the well. Start whisking the mixture slowly, gradually adding the milk and gin. Make sure to scrape any flour from the sides of the bowl as you whisk.
Whisk until all the flour has been used and the batter is smooth, without any lumps.
Heat the pan over a medium heat. Grease the pan with some more oil. Using a ladle, pour roughly 2 tbsp of batter into the pan and swirl it around so the bottom of the pan is evenly coated
Cook the pancake for about 45 secs on one side then flip the pancake over and cook the other side for about 30 secs. Both sides should be golden brown when finished cooking. If necessary, flip the pancake again.
As you finish cooking each pancake, stack them up on a plate. To make it easier to separate them, place baking paper between the pancakes.
Once you have a stack of pancakes, add a handful of blueberries and the remaining sloe gin to a pan. Stew the blueberries for 2-3 minutes to absorb the sloe gin flavours.
Serve the pancake with the ginfused blueberries and a dollop of whipped cream.
