Servings Makes 10 – 12
Main Ingredients
  • 7oz plain flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 eggs medium or large
  • ¾ pint milk (full fat)
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter plus extra for cooking

Main Instructions
  1. Sift the flour into a bowl, add the salt and make a well in the centre.
  2. Add the egg and most of the milk and whisk until smooth.
  3. Add the remaining milk gradually & whisk until well mixed.
  4. Let the batter rest for 30 minutes. Then add the melted butter.
  5. If it seems too thick you can add a little more milk.  It should have the consistency of double cream.
  6. To cook the pancakes, heat a non-stick frying pan, about 20cm wide over a medium heat until hot.  Swirl in a little butter and tip out any excess or use butter paper to grease the pan (you don’t want any excess fat).
  7. Then add a small ladle of the batter, just enough to coat the base of the pan.
  8. Swirl it quickly until it covers the base.  Cook until lightly coloured underneath then flip over with a palette knife and cook for a few more minutes until nicely coloured on both sides.
  9. You can keep the pancakes in a warm oven layered up on a plate until ready to serve.
