Drop pancakes with smoked salmon

Whether they're served for brunch, lunch or dinner, these smoked salmon-topped drop pancakes make a wonderful any-time meal.

Serves 6

Prep Time 5 min

Cooking Time 15 min


  • 2 medium eggs, separated
  • 175ml skimmed milk
  • 150g self-raising flour
  • Sunflower oil spray
  • 150ml low-fat crème fraîche
  • 3tbsp creamed horseradish
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • 250g smoked salmon, torn
  • Small bunch fresh chives, snipped, to garnish


  1. Whisk the egg whites until they’re thick and hold soft peaks.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the milk with 2tbsp water and whisk together with the flour and egg yolks until smooth. Gently whisk in the egg whites.
  3. Heat a 20cm frying pan over a medium heat, spray with a little sunflower spray and add batter to the pan in 2tbsp dollops – you should be able to fit three pancakes into the pan at a time, spacing them a few centimetres apart. Cook for 1–1½ min, until the surface is bubbly and the underside is golden. Turn over and cook for up to 1 further min, until golden. Transfer to a plate, cover with a thick tea towel to keep warm, then repeat with the remaining mixture, to make 18 pancakes.
  4. Combine the crème fraîche, horseradish and lemon juice in a small bowl.
  5. Serve three pancakes per person. Drape with the salmon, top with the horseradish cream and garnish with the snipped chives.
