Gloucester Pancakes from Jane Grigson
6 oz plain flour
1 pinch salt
1 tsp baking powder
3 oz shredded suet
1 egg; beaten
A little milk
Lard for frying
Stir together the flour, salt and baking powder in a bowl then rub in
the suet. Add the egg and sufficient milk to produce a stiff dough. Roll
out on a lightly floured surface to about 1/4 inch thick, then cut into
about 12 rounds, using a plain (not fluted) 2 inch cutter. Melt a little
lard in a frying pan and fry the cakes until golden brown on both sides.
Drain well and serve at once with warmed golden syrup or a lemon sauce.
Makes about 12 cakes.
These are fantastic, proper rural fare, three of those and you know you have been fed.
