Ingredients

  • 125g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tbsp sugar (any kind)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp melted butter, plus extra for frying
  • 100ml milk
  • 50g baby spinach leaves, washed and chopped

Method

    Put the flour, baking powder, sugar, eggs, butter, milk and spinach in a blender and whizz until you get a smooth, bright green batter.

    Heat a little more butter in a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add small dollops to the pan, 2-3 at a time. Cook for 2 mins until the edges are set, and bubbles are rising to the surface, then flip and cook for 1-2 mins more. Keep warm while you cook the remaining batches.
