Liz's St Piran's Pancake Recipe

St Piran's Day is one of our favourite days of the year - the national day of Cornwall, celebrating the patron saint of tin miners and Cornwall. There are parades, Cornish folk music and an excuse to indulge in some traditional Cornish food and drink. Served with pancakes. Obviously.
