Try this savoury twist on pancakes for brunch using homegrown British Salsify from Albert Bartlett


  • 120g salsify
  • 100g carrot
  • 100g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 100ml milk
  • 2 spring onions, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 2 tsp horseradish sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oil for frying


  1. Wash and peel the salsify and carrot, chop of the top and ends and then finely grate both of them.
  2. In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, eggs and milk until there are no lumps.
  3. Add in the grated salsify and carrot, along with the spring onions, garlic and horseradish sauce.
  4. Mix well and then season to taste with salt and pepper.
  5. Add a little oil to a frying pan and take a large spoonful of the pancake mixture to make one pancake, adding it to the frying pan.
  6. Repeat until you have 4 pancakes in the pan. Fry for approximately 3-4 minutes on either side until golden brown and cooked through.
  7. Remove the pancakes and repeat the process with the remaining batter. You should be able to make 8 pancakes from this mixture.
