- 100g plain flour
- Pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- 30ml milk
- 1 tbsp melted butter or sunflower oil
- To serve:
- Caster Sugar
- Lemon juice
- Vanilla ice cream
- 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 tablespoons), 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.
- To serve, turn onto a plate, smear with a little butter, sprinkle of sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice. Or keep it simple with lemon and sugar.
- If you want something a little more why not try a thin layer of Nutella, kids love this one. If you want to try something a bit different then try it with vanilla ice-cream.
