  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp golden caster sugar

Method

  • STEP 1

    Put the flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon and sugar in a large bowl with a pinch of salt. Combine the egg, maple syrup and milk in a jug. Gradually add to the dry ingredients, whisking until a smooth, silky batter forms.
