I have fond nostalgia for these simple bready pancakes, and I badgered my mother, friends and family for the recipe for years. I have always adored these, served oozing with butter and honey.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 teaspoon dry yeast
pinch sugar
1/2 cup water, warm
250g strong bread flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 tablespoons olive oil, plus a little extra for pan-frying
honey, to serve
butter, to serve

Method

  1. Dissolve the yeast and sugar in about half the water and leave in a warm place for 10 minutes, or until the yeast bubbles.
  2. Put the flour, salt and a tablespoon of the oil in a large bowl and mix well. Stir in the yeast mixture and enough of the remaining water to make a soft ball.
  3. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 10 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Return it to the bowl and pour the remaining tablespoon of oil on it, rolling it in the bowl until it is oiled and glossy all over. Cover the dough with a tea towel or plastic wrap and leave in a warm place for 1½ hours, or until doubled in size.
  4. Divide the dough into 10 equal portions, then roll the rounds out on an oiled work surface as thinly as possible. Pull and stretch the rounds out to make the pancakes even thinner.
  5. Place an oiled frying pan over medium heat. Fry the rounds one at a time for about 2 minutes, or until lightly coloured underneath, then turn them over and cook the other side.
  6. To keep the pancakes soft and pliable, cover them with a cloth, placing each new one under the previous one (they harden quickly on cooling). You can reheat them in the oven, if necessary, as long as you wrap them in foil first. But you must definitely eat them warm, copiously buttered and honeyed.
