Beer isn't just for drinking at breakfast

Pancake Day - remember the batter is best made first thing and then left on the slab in the larder for the day before cooking for high tea. So get to it.

Beer Pancakes

2 eggs
8 oz plain flour
2 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp salt
Half a pint milk
2 tbsp butter melted
grated rind of 1 lemon
2 tbsp Ale

2 tbsps? I would splash a bit more in, and cut the milk a bit, but then that reduces the amount of beer in the bottle that would only go to waste if not drunk at breakfast....

I expect that beer is about the ONLY English thing that Mr Stanley Baldwin did not mention in his talk of 1934:

Do you use lard, or olive oil to fry them?

( Answer - A tiny amount of butter)
