An old favourite, but still good today topped with jam and cream. I think this recipe varies from current ones by the use of sour milk. Sour milk was made by taking fresh milk, adding vinegar or lemon juice and standing in a warm place until it soured. Mum always used sour milk when she made banana cake and it gave it a great taste.
- 1 cup Self Raising flour
- Pinch salt
- ½ teaspoon bi-carb soda
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1 egg
- ½ cup sour milk (or fresh milk soured with 1 teaspoon vinegar)
- 1 dessertspoon melted butter
Sift dry ingredients, add sugar, beat milk and egg together and mix into dry ingredients, add melted butter. Heat a frypan and brush with a little extra melted butter, drop tablespoons of the mixture into the pan and cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Turn and cook on other side.
