Pancake Ingredients

For the pancake mixture:

  • 110g plain flour (sifted)
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 Free Range Eggs from Morley Butchers
  • 200ml milk mixed with 75ml water
  • 50g butter

Pancake cooking method

  1. Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl (Sifting helps to get air into the mixture so hold the sieve well above the bowl). Break the eggs into the middle of the flour and start whisking incorporating all the flour from the edges of the bowl as you go.
  2. Keep whisking and slowly add in the milk and water mixture again make sure all the flour from around the edge of the bowl is included. You are ready for the next stage when the batter is smooth (similar to pouring cream)
  3. Next melt the the butter in a pan but not too hot. Add 2 table spoons into the mixture and whisk it in. The rest of the butter will be used to grease the pan for each pancake. You will only need a little smear each time – just use some kitchen paper dipped in the butter to wipe round the  pan.
  4. First make sure that you pan is very hot, then reduce to medium heat. Always treat the first pancake as a tester to get your quantities right. Two tablespoons will be about right for an average pan size.  As your pour batter into the hot pan tilt round so ou get an even spread. 30 seconds will be about right timing however lift the edge and check to see if it is a pleasing golden colour before you flip. The second side will cook much quicker than the first. If they look a bit sticky place some greaseproof paper between each one as you stack them up
  5. To serve, sprinkle each pancake with freshly squeezed lemon juice and sugar. (Nutella is very popular with a younger audience even if its not that traditional.)
