Farinata is a sophisticated version of the Monaco classic Socca.

The recipe is simple and quick, and creates a cosy pancake that slips down well with a glass or two of champagne. This version adds rosemary and sea salt, but the recipe can also be made with herbs or cheese too.

Thank you to Delicious Magazine for the recipe.

Steps

1
Done

Put the flour, 2 tbsp oil, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Using a balloon whisk, stir through 300ml cold water to form a loose batter. Rest for 10 minutes, then skim the froth from the surface (or see Make Ahead).

2
Done

Heat the oven to 240°C/fan220°C/gas 9. Heat a 20cm heavy-based, ovenproof frying pan on the hob. Add 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil and, when it shimmers, pour in half the batter. It should sizzle like Yorkshire pudding batter. Once the edge is set, turn the heat down a bit. When the mixture begins to bubble, scatter over half the rosemary leaves, then continue to cook on the hob until the sides begin to turn golden.

3
Done

Transfer the pan to the oven and cook for 10 minutes or until the pancake is golden and crisp at the edge, with a soft centre. Flip it out of the pan, scatter with sea salt and drizzle with a little more oil. Repeat with the remaining batter.

4
Done

Cut the pancakes into slices and serve warm, or leave to cool to room temperature (but we think they’re much better warm).

5
Done

Make Ahead

Make the batter up to 8 hours ahead, then cover and leave somewhere cool. Skim the froth from the surface before cooking.
