Pancake Recipe

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
pancake lemon sugar

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!
