Ingredients

  • 150g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • ½ tbsp maple syrup, plus extra to serve
  • 150ml full-fat milk or semi-skimmed milk
  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • a few drops red food colouring
  • icing sugar, for dusting
  • 2 squeezy bottles

Method

  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl with a pinch of salt. Combine the wet ingredients in a jug and gradually pour into the dry ingredients, whisking until a smooth batter forms.

  2. Put 2 tbsp of the batter in a small bowl and mix in a few drops of red food colouring. Transfer to a squeezy bottle.

  3. Put 1/3 of the remaining batter into the other squeezy bottle, and the remaining 2/3 into a jug.

  4. Gently heat a drizzle of oil in a non-stick pan. Squeeze some batter into an outline of Rudolph, drawing two holes for eyes. Fill the rest with batter from the jug. Make a nose using the coloured batter. Cook for 1-2 mins, flip and cook for 1 min more. Repeat to make four pancakes. Serve with icing sugar and maple syrup.
