Peanut Pancakes

Method

Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl and whisk the eggs, evaporated milk and water in a separate bowl. Whisk the liquids into the solids a little at a time and fold gently to a smooth batter. Strain the batter through a fine sieve and stand in the fridge for at least 1 hour before cooking.

Heat a 20cm frypan over medium heat and grease with a little paper towel soaked in oil. Add a large ladle of batter to the pan and spread it over the base and a little up the sides of the pan. Cook the pancake until dry on top and crisp underneath.

Rub the top of the pancake with a little butter and scatter generously with peanuts and brown sugar. Fold the pancake over and serve with a scoop of ice cream.
