Scottish breakfast pancakes

This Destitute Gourmet Scottish Breakfast Pancakes recipe is cheap to make, filling and tasty, yet nice enough to serve to guests.


  • 1c medium rolled oats
  • 1c milk
  • 3/4c plain or wholemeal flour
  • 2t baking powder
  • 1/4t salt
  • 1T sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 30g melted butter
  • extra butter for frying

Place the rolled oats in a bowl and add the milk. In another bowl sift the flour, baking powder and salt.

To the oat mixture add sugar and egg and mix well.

Pour oat mixture into flour mixture and mix well.

Add the melted butter and stir well. Add extra milk if necessary to get a dropping consistency.

Heat a nob of butter in a hot pan.

Drop a large spoonful (quarter of the mixture) into the centre of your pan and cook on medium high.

Heat one side until air bubbles start to show on top, then flip and cook for another minute or so.

(Paul warming his hands over the frying pan. Important step if you're making these in winter.)

Serve with banana and maple syrup, or stewed apple and cinnamon - or anything else you love on pancakes. 


  1. You'll have to get a chook or two to save you buying eggs :D

  2. Funny you should say that. We did have chooks here for a while but they got too smelly for our small section so we gave them away.
