  • 150g self-raising flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 150ml milk
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup, plus extra to serve
  • 50g mixed nuts, chopped
  • 2 tbsp rapeseed oil, for frying


  1. Tip the flour and baking powder into a large bowl with a pinch of salt. Make a well in the centre, then add the egg, milk and syrup. Whisk until smooth, then fold in half the nuts.

  2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large, non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Spoon two ladles of the mixture into the pan and cook for 1 min each side. Repeat to make two more.

  3. Serve with a drizzle of agave syrup and the remaining nuts for extra crunch.
