For the syrup
- 250ml can gin & tonic
- 2 tbsp caster sugar
- 1 lemon, juiced (and zest for garnish)
Oval in shape with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile…
For the pancakes
To make the syrup, pour a can of gin & tonic into a saucepan along with the sugar and lemon juice and reduce for a few mins until syrupy. Set aside.
To make the pancakes, put the flour, egg, sugar and a pinch of salt into a bowl, pour in the other can of gin & tonic and whisk the batter until smooth. Lightly oil a non-stick pan, set over a medium heat, add two spoonfuls of batter into the pan and cook for 1-2 mins on each side. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve with the syrup drizzled over and finely grate over some lemon zest.
