Pancakes

Making pancakes can be great family fun!


Making pancakes can be great family fun with this simple recipe. To make them healthier avoid adding sugar to the pancake mix and instead add a sweet topping like fresh or stewed fruit.


Ingredients - Serves 6 Adults

  • 100g / 4 oz. of plain flour
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 300ml / 10 fl oz. of semi-skimmed milk
  • 1 teaspoon of sunflower oil

Method

  1. Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl, make a well in the centre and then add the beaten eggs
  2. Use a balloon whisk to beat the eggs into the flour and gradually whisk in the milk until just smooth
  3. Brush a non-stick medium frying pan with the oil and when very hot pour in about 3 tablespoons worth of the batter
  4. Quickly tilt the pan from side to side to form a thick layer of batter and cook for one minute
  5. Flip the pancake over with a spatula and cook until the underside is slightly golden
  6. Continue with the rest of the batter, recoating the pan with oil when required
