For a basic pancake recipe, you will need the following ingredients –
- 100g (4oz) plain flour
- 1 egg
- 300ml (1/2 pint) milk
- optional pinch salt
- sugar and lemon juice to serve
- oil for frying
To make the pancake batter, add the milk, egg and then the flour and blend using
an electric blender or food processor. Or if a blender is not available, sift the
flour and salt into a bowl. Add the egg and beat well. Then add the milk gradually
and beat to make a smooth batter.
Heat a little oil in a large frying pan until hot and then pour enough batter to
thinly coat the base of the pan. Cook for a couple of minutes each side.
Serve sprinkled with sugar and lemon juice. Alternatively drizzle with golden syrup or jam. Or spread nutella on the pancake as below!
