Garth McColgan's pancakes are perfect for the children!


  • 2 eggs (separated)
  • 100 g self raising flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tblsp caster sugar
  • 100 g butter (melted)
  • 120 ml cream
  • 120 ml milk


  1. Sieve the flour, salt, and sugar together in a bowl.
  2. In another bowl, mix the melted butter, egg yolks, cream, and milk.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff.
  4. Add the flour mix into the milk and cream mix then whisk. (Don't worry if there is the odd lump) and leave to rest for 20 minutes.
  5. Fry on a medium heat in butter. The pancakes should be about 4" (10cm) wide.
  6. To Serve: Garth's favourite ways of serving Silver Dollar Pancakes are with lemon and sugar or with grilled, dry-cured bacon, drizzled in maple syrup/honey.
