I’m a big fan of this talented Scottish writer who has a passion for improving the diet of children in particular and making them realize that its fun to cook and ‘easy peasy’ to make simply delicious food."

Flora's Flop Flops
 • 225g of self-raising flour
 • 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
 • a pinch of salt
 • 1 tablespoon of castor sugar
 • 1 large egg
 • 275ml of semi-skimmed milk
 • some butter for frying
 1.  Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl.
 2.  Add the bicarbonate of soda, a pinch of salt and the sugar and mix everything together.
 3.  Break the egg into a small bowl and beat it with a fork. Add it to the mixing bowl.
 4.  Add the milk.
 5.  Use a balloon whisk to mix everything together to make a thick batter. Don’t worry about any lumps – keep
     mixing and they will disappear.
 6.  Cover the bowl with cling film and leave it for an hour or so.
 7.  Melt a small blob of butter in the frying pan over a medium heat. When it starts to sizzle, put 3 or 4
     tablespoons of the thick batter into the frying pan, spaced well apart.
 8.  Turn down the heat and cook the Flop Flops for 3-4 minutes until lots of little bubbles appear on the
     surface and they start to brown underneath.
 9.  Slide a fish knife underneath and use a fork to help you carefully flip each one over. Cook them for
     another 2-3 minutes on the other side until they are golden brown.
 10. Put the cooked Flip Flops on the warmed plate and cover them with a clean tea towel. Keep them in a warm
     place and cook the rest of the batter in the same way.
 11. There are very nice eaten still warm with butter and a big blob of jam.
 12. You could also add 2 tablespoons of raisins or blueberries to the batter.
