This sounds like a pretty good recipe - used to make pancakes like these with Sainsbury's pancake mix (now defunct like so many good things) and cover them with melted golden syrup. Cross between a drop scone and the loathsome thin flabby slimy Brit effort called 'pancake', like semi-raw Yorkshire pudding. But, whoever wrote it, why didn't you check your typos ... grrrr!
