Sloe Gin Pancakes

PancakesA little inspiration for Pancake Day! Sloe Gin Pancakes  As February moves on apace and the flames smoulder from the romance of Valentines Day, we thought we would inspire you with a recipe for Sloe Gin Pancakes. Pancake Day/Shrove Tuesday -coming up on the last day of February is an event not to be missed! 

2 tbsp Sloemotion Sloe Gin
125g plain flour
15g caster sugar
pinch salt
2 medium free-range eggs
325ml milk
50ml double cream
20g butter – for frying


  1. Whisk the flour, sugar, salt, eggs and a third of the milk in a bowl – use a whisk to get this into a smooth silky batter.

  2. Gradually stir in the rest of the milk and all of the cream – this thins the batter. Now leave the batter to rest, covered, in a warm place for about an hour.

  3. Just before cooking, stir in the Sloemotion Sloe Gin and give the batter a good whisk to enliven it.

  4. Brush a small 20cm (8 inch) frying pan with a little butter and place over a medium heat. Add a ladleful of the batter into the centre of the frying pan and then tilt the pan to and fro to cover the base thinly; cook the pancake for only a minute each side. Move to a warm plate and repeat, stacking them up, until all of the batter has been used up.

You can keep them warm in a low oven when made.
