Scottish Porridge Oat Pancakes
- 35 g porridge oats
- 150 g no fat Greek yogurt
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
- 3 medium eggs
- ½ tsp baking powder
- 2-3 ripe plums
- 1 star anise
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- Place the porridge oats, yogurt and vanilla essence in a bowl. Mix well and then cover the bowl and put aside for 1 hour, or in the fridge overnight.
- Prior to cooking take out of the fridge and allow to rest for at least 1 hour to bring back to room temperature.
- Beat the eggs and add them and the baking powder to the porridge mixture.
- Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add 2 tablespoons of the batter to the pan for each pancake.
- Cook the pancakes until you see air bubbles appearing, then carefully flip them over with a spatula and once cooked remove each pancake to a flat baking tray and keep warm, but not covered in your oven.
- Repeat steps 4 and 5 to cook the other pancakes.
- Cut the plums in half and remove their stones. Place them in a microwave bowl with the star anise and the cinnamon. Cover the bowl and microwave on full power for 1 – 2 minutes until the plums are softened and have released their juices.
- Carefully remove the star anise and plum skins and pour the juices over the tops of the pancakes.
