Makes 12 small pancakes
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

You’ll need:

  • 250g plain cooked (vacuum packed) beetroot, drained
  • 225g plain flour
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 30g butter, melted and cooled
  • 1tbsp baking powder

What to do:

  1. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth.
  2. Heat a little oil in a large frying pan. 
  3. Pour ladles of the batter into the pan and cook until you start to see little bubbles on the surface – this will take a minute or two.
  4. Using a fish slice flip over the pancakes and cook for a further minute or so.
