Italia's delicious savory mint pancakes
  • 100 g Plain Wholemeal Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • 75 ml Water
  • 175 ml Semi-skimmed milk
  • Glug of Olive Oil
  • 2 large handfuls of roughly chopped Mint
  1. If you haven’t got a food blender to blend the batter together, sift the flour in a mixing bowl and make a well. Add the salt and eggs.
  2. Mix the water, milk and olive oil together and pour slowly into the flour and egg mixture until you have a smooth consistency. Add the chopped mint and leave to stand for half an hour in the fridge.
  3. Heat a little oil (groundnut or sunflower or if you prefer butter) on a medium heat and add a small ladleful of batter. Swirl the batter in the pan when it’s set turn over and cook for another 30-50 seconds. These pancakes are not skinny crepes in style a little bit thicker, think Farmer’s pancakes so do require a few seconds more to cook.
  4. Serve with pecorino and peperoncino oil.
