Makes approx. 12 pancakes
- 100g plain flour
- Pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- 300 ml milk
- 1 tablsp. melted butter or sunflower oil
- Sift the flour and salt into a mixing bowl and make a well in the centre.
- Crack the egg into the well; add the melted butter or oil and half the milk.
- Gradually draw the flour into the liquid by stirring all the time with a wooden spoon until all the flour has been incorporated and then beat well to make a smooth batter.
- Stir in the remaining milk. Alternatively, beat all the ingredients together for 1 minute in a blender or food processor.
- Leave to stand for about 30 minutes, stir again before using.
- To make the pancakes, heat a small heavy-based frying until very hot and then turn the heat down to medium.
- Lightly grease with oil and then ladle in enough batter to coat the base of the pan thinly (about 2 tablsp.), tilting the pan so the mixture spreads evenly.
- Cook over a moderate heat for 1-2 minutes or until the batter looks dry on the top and begins to brown at the edges.
- Flip the pancake over with a palette knife or fish slice and cook the second side.
- Caster sugar
- Lemon juice
Turn onto a plate, smear with a little butter, sprinkle of sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice – enjoy!
