  • small frying pan


  • 125 g plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 225 ml milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter for frying


  • Sieve the flour into a bowl
  • Make a well in the centre and add the eggs
  • Add a little milk and gradually begin to incorporate the egg and milk with a whisk
  • Slowly add more milk as you continue mixing until all the milk has been used up
  • Whisk for a couple of minutes to ensure you have a smooth batter
  • Leave to rest for 30 minutes if you can
  • Heat a small knob of butter in a 20cm frying pan, let it get hot enough for the batter to sizzle when poured in
  • Pour in about 2 tablespoons of batter and swirl it round the pan to the edges
  • Cook for about 60 seconds
  • Use a fish slice to lift it up and check if it is brown
  • Then flip over - using the fish slice - or by tossing your pancake - your choice!
  • Serve immediately or keep warm by placing kitchen roll or greaseproof paper between each pancake.
  • Keep in an oven on a low heat - but the sooner served, the better your pancakes will taste!!
