Method

Looking for an easy pancake recipe with a bit of a twist? Well, look no further than this delicious pancake recipe which uses potato instead of your usual pancake batter. This pancake base is delightfully inspired by a mixture of smashed avocado and smoked salmon. Ideal for Pancake Day 2019!

_____

For this recipe, dice the potatoes and boil in a pan of hot water. Drain the water and leave the potatoes in the pan.

Whilst still hot, mash the potatoes then allow to cool before adding in the spring onion and seasoning. Lightly whisk the flour and baking powder with the milk (100ml at first) and zest and add to the mash, whisking in.

Check the seasoning and consistency (add a little extra milk if the mix is too stiff, but it should still be thick). Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan.

When hot, pour in the batter, using a spatula to spread the mix out as its quite thick. When the pancake has puffed up and browned beneath (about 2 minutes), carefully flip over to cook on the other side.

To serve, place a pancake on each plate, top with the smashed avocado (seasoned with salt and pepper and lemon juice), a handful of watercress and the smoked salmon.

If you are adding a poached egg, place this on top of the salmon. Squeeze extra lemon and drizzle olive oil over everything.

TIP Leftover mashed potatoes can be used in this recipe.
