Prep time - 5 mins

Makes 12 pancakes


100g plain flour

  1. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl, and add the eggs into a well in the flour.
  2. Whisk the eggs into the flour, then gradually add the milk to ensure a smooth batter.
  3. Heat a frying pan until hot, and brush with the melted butter. Pour approx. 2 tablespoons of the mixture into the pan and swirl around to give a smooth layer of batter.
  4. Cook for around 1 minute.
  5. Using a spatula, flip the pancake over.
  6. Cook for a further minute until golden brown.
  7. If making the pancakes ahead for the fridge or freezer, layer with greaseproof paper to keep each pancake separate.
