Ham & Cheese Pancakes

Ham & Cheese Pancakes

Serves 2 (6 pancakes)


100g all-purpose flour (or 93g whole wheat flour)
egg, beaten
200ml milk
½ tbsp olive oil, plus extra for frying
30g butter
80g smoked ham, diced
80g gruyère or Gran Soresina Parmigiano Reggiano, grated
small handful spring onions, snipped



  1. Put the flour and ½ tsp salt in a bowl.
  2. Combine the eggs with the milk and oil, then gradually pour into the dry ingredients, whisking constantly until it’s a smooth batter.
  3. Transfer to a large jug.
  4. Swirl a little oil around a large, non-stick pan over a gentle heat.
  5. Pour a quarter of the batter into the pan, tilting to coat the entire base.
  6. Cook for 1 min, flip over and cook for a further 30 secs. On one half of the pancake, add ¼ of the butter and sprinkle over ¼ of the ham and cheese.
  7. Grind over some black pepper and fold the pancake over the fillings. Fold in half again and transfer to a plate to serve.
  8. Repeat until you have four pancakes. Serve scattered with the chives.
