  • 200g plain flour
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp chives, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp laverbread
  • 2 large eggs, separated
  • 284ml buttermilk or natural yoghurt
  • 100ml milk
  • Knob of butter


  1. Sift the flour and salt into a bowl, add the herbs and laverbread and mix all together. Make a well in the centre and add the egg yolks, buttermilk and milk and stir well.
  2. Whisk the egg whites until they form soft peaks and fold into the mixture gently to keep the mixture light. 
  3. Melt a little butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry spoonfuls of the mixture for about a minute on each side. Keep warm and serve either spread with butter or topped with crispy bacon or Carmarthen Ham and roasted cherry tomatoes.
