Griddle Cakes

This is a really simple and easy to make recipe, you can even involve the kids with the mixing. Keep the kids away from the hot coals though!

  • 500 ml self raising flour
  • 5 ml salt
  • 1 egg
  • 50 ml cooking oil
  • milk
  • water
  1. Sift the flour and salt together. Break the egg in a 250 ml measuring cup and add the oil. Fill the cup to the 250 ml mark with a mixture of milk and water. Beat well.
  2. Mix the flour and liquid to a form of dough. Shape into little balls and flatten them with your hand.
  3. Bake the cakes for 12-15 minutes on a griddle over the coals, turning them once.
  4. Serve hot with butter and syrup.

For a variation try using 170ml of beer instead of the egg, milk, oil and water. Cook on an oiled piece of foil laid on the grill.
