During tea break or snack,some people have it for breakfast, crempog is sweet tasty and mouth watering it is a Welsh traditional dessert and a dessert worth making!

In order to eat it you'll need to learn how to make it....

Beat the eggs into a separate bowl then add the sugar, bicarbonate of soda, salt and vinegar into the bowl and stirr thoroughly

Pour this mixture into the flour and milk mixture and beat well to form a smooth batter

Grease the pan or griddle using butter and heat

Drop the batter, a tablespoon at a time onto the heated pan or a griddle and bake over a moderate heat until your pancake looks golden brown on both sides, then keep warm. Continue until all the batter is used up.

Note:- If you can not buy buttermilk this recipe works just as well mixing half and half milk and thick natural yogurt together.
