Crempogs or Welsh Pancakes are traditional on Shrove Tuesday.


 55 g Butter
 450 g Warm Buttermilk
 275 g Plain Flour
 75 g Sugar
 1 tsp Baking Powder
 ½ tsp Salt
 1 tbsp Vinegar
 2 Eggs, well beaten

Stir the butter into the warmed buttermilk until melted. Gradually pour the milk and butter into the flour and beat well. Leave the mixture to stand (for a few hours if possible)for at least 30 minutes.


Stir the sugar, bicarbonate of soda, salt and vinegar into the beaten eggs. Pour this mixture into the flour and milk mixture and beat well to form a smooth batter.


Heavily grease a griddle or hot-stone and heat. Drop the batter, a tablespoon at a time onto the heated griddle and bake over a moderate heat until golden brown on both sides, then keep warm. Continue until all the batter is used up.


Spread butter on each pancake and eat while warm.
Jam, banana, syrup, currants and even a chocolate drizzle are of course optional!
