Irish Pancakes


2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon white sugar

1 large egg, beaten

1 cup buttermilk

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, browned

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, for frying pan


Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl.

Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the beaten egg, buttermilk, and browned butter in a constant stream to the dry ingredients while stirring together the batter.

Careful not to over-beat, as this will make dense pancakes.

Add a tablespoon of butter to the skillet, stir it around until the skillet is coated, and then add a few large dollops of batter to the pan, careful not to overcrowd it.

Cook for about 3 minutes a side, until golden brown and cooked through.

Serve with butter, jam, and syrup.
