    About this recipe: Serve with fresh-squeezed lemon juice and sugar, or with butter and jam. I always thought that I had the best pancake recipe in the world until I tried these!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 5 

    • 125g self-raising flour
    • 4 tablespoons sugar
    • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 1 egg, lightly beaten
    • 175ml milk
    • 15g butter

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Sift together the flour, sugar and bicarb in a large bowl. Slowly add the egg and milk while stirring continually until smooth.
    2. Place a girdle or frying pan over medium heat. Lightly coat the surface of the pan with butter. Pour 2 tablespoons (30ml) of batter into the pan. Cook until bubbles begin to appear on the surface of the batter; flip and continue to cook until lightly browned on the bottom, 1 to 2 minutes each side. Reapply butter to the pan between batches.

    Perfect thanks! Tasty, simple, easy. Only made 5 med sized pancakes so if you have more people to feed maybe make more. I didn't have self raising so used plain flour and added 7g of baking powder and 3g salt (equivalent to self raising). This did make the mix slightly too thick, next time I will do the same but using only 115g of plain flour with salt and baking powder. - 10 Feb 2013
