spring onion and chilli pancakes

Pancakes for breakfast are always welcome and these savoury spring onion and chilli pancakes are no exception. You can put them together very easily in no time at all but they feel like a real treat. Enjoy them as they are or do as I did and enjoy with a soft poached egg and some crispy bacon.

1 1/2 tsp baking powder
salt and pepper
1 large egg
2/3 cups milk
3/4 cups plain (all-purpose) flour
2 tbsp freshly grated parmesan
4 or 5 spring onions (scallions), finely chopped white and green parts
1/2 tsp chilli flakes (optional)
vegetable oil for cooking
  1. Put all of the ingredients apart from the spring onions into a blender and blitz for a minute or so or until everything is thoroughly combined. You can mix everything together by hand but this way is so much easier.
  2. Add the spring onions and stir through or very briefly pulse the mixture to bring everything together
  3. Heat a non-stick frying pan and add a tablespoon or so of oil then pour in 1/4 or 1/3 cup measures of the mixture. Turn the pancakes over once bubbles have formed on the top then cook for another minute.
  4. Serve with some crispy bacon and chilli sauce or add a poached egg for extra decadence.
