Fantasy Veggie Dinner Guest - TOM POWERS



Evidence shows that Mr Tom Powers (James Cagney) is not at his best in the mornings. 

His conduct cannot be condoned but, just perhaps, a grapefruit half is not the thing to serve a gangster boyfriend with a hangover. 

Zelda's advice is to try serving him something more substantial and see if his mood improves. And this will be fine at whatever time of day he wakes up.

 BUTTERMILK PANCAKES with MAPLE SYRUP


Makes 6 – 8 pancakes

Ingredients
375g/ 6oz self-raising flour
½tsp bicarbonate of soda
½tsp salt
1tsp caster sugar
100ml/ 3½floz buttermilk
200ml/ 7floz milk
1free range egg
40g/ 1½oz butter, melted + about 10g for frying
maple syrup for serving

Method

Sift flour into a bowl with bicarbonate of soda, salt and sugar



In a jug, mix the milk with the buttermilk, eggs and butter.



Pour into the flour and stir to combine.


Melt remaining butter in a pan.

Pour some batter into the pan. Cook for about a minute (You should see it start to firm up and the bubbles rise to the top). 


Then turn and cook the other side.

Keep the cooked pancakes in a warm oven until all are ready.

Stack the warm pancakes on top of each other.
Serve with maple syrup.
Did his mood improve?
Maybe not...
