Valerie, Taupo.

Here’s a tip for using duck eggs. Make Scotch pancakes/pikelets. You will need:

• 2 duck eggs
• 4 tablespoons white sugar
• 3 cups self-raising flour
• 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
• 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
• Full milk – to mix

Beat the eggs. Add the sugar and beat. Add the Baking soda and cream of tartar to the flour and sift into the egg mix, adding milk as you go till a dropping consistency. Heat an electric frying pan, smear with butter on greaseproof paper. Drip in tablespoon fulls of mix and turn when covered with bubbles. Stow under a linen tea towel. Lovely the next day with bacon or served with fried eggs.

Many thanks for the recipe Valerie. We have tried it and can say they are delicious – Oily Rag Ed’
