  • Pan that goes on the campfire


  • 5 oz flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp Powdered sugar (regular sugar will work as well)
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 fl.oz Milk Or water if you like.
  • Melted butter, or similar For the pancake to not stick to the pan
  • 15 Heads of elderflower (To start.. If you have more, just make more)


  • Add the eggs, sugar, salt and milk and whisk it well.
  • Add the flour little by little to the mix
  • Add a little melted butter to the mix
  • Gently shake the elderflower heads to remove unwanted things in them. Consider NOT washing them, as that will leave most of the flavor on the elderflowers.
  • Gently dip the rinsed elder flower heads to the batter.
  • Place them in a hot pan over the campfire, with plenty of cooking butter or oil.
    Careful as they burn easily.
  • Remove them stems with a pair of scissors, or dip them in sugar and eat them straight off the vine. Careful to no let the kids eat to much of the stalk as that is not good for you.
