In my opinion this is the simplest recipe I've come across and the pancakes always turn out lovely, so maybe give this a go tonight - all you need it eggs, flour, milk and butter, plus whatever you like to drown your pancakes in!
This recipe makes 10 pancakes if you make them quite thin, or less if you like them thick and fat like me! I'll take you through it step by step, it's really easy I promise :)
Weigh 140g of plain flour and put it into a large mixing bowl
Add four medium eggs (yolks and whites)
Add 200ml of milk (I used semi-skimmed but you can use whole milk too)
Mix really well with a whisk or a fork aiming to get rid of all the lumps
Weigh 50g of butter or margarine
Melt it in the microwave for 30 seconds or so until it looks like this
Add the melted butted to your pancake batter
Mix really well again until everything is combined and the batter is smooth
Put a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat, let it warm up for a few minutes (depends on your hob really) and add a little oil. When it's nice and hot, ladle in some of your pancake batter - more if you want a thicker pancake
Tilt the pan around to coat the bottom fairly evenly with your pancake mixture
Keep a close eye on your pancake - they cook quite quickly. If you've got a medium heat on this should be 1 - 2 minutes. When the top looks set, poke at the edges with a spatula, lifting all the way around to stop the pancake from slipping.
If you're feeling flash, this is where you toss your pancake in the air. Or if not, use your spatula to flip it over!
Continue cooking the other side for about a minute or so. You can always lift up the edges with the spatula again to check if it's browning. When it's done to your liking, turn it out onto a plate.
Squeeze on lots of lemon and roll the pancake. Then sprinkle with sugar and devour!
By the way, I don't do Jif Lemon, I think it's an unnatural substance - real lemons all the way for me!
Will you be nomming on pancakes for your dinner tonight? If you follow my recipe to make your pancakes I'd love to hear about it :)
