    Makes: 12 pancakes

    • 150g plain flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon caster sugar
    • 225ml milk
    • 1 egg
    • 1 knob of butter, melted
    • butter or oil for frying

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Sift together the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. Make a well in the centre. Pour in the milk, then add the egg and melted butter. Beat well till the pancake batter is smooth.
    2. Heat a frying pan over medium heat. Lightly grease with butter or vegetable oil. To test to see if the pan is hot enough, flick a bit of water on the pan. If it sizzles, it is ready. Ladle the pancake batter into the pan.
    3. Cook each pancake till bubbles appear on the surface and the edges have gone slightly dry. Flip each pancake and cook for a minute or two on the reverse side, till golden brown.
    4. Serve hot with your favourite toppings, such as maple syrup and fresh berries. Enjoy!
