Make your Pancake Day flippin’ fantastic this year by creating simple yet delicious pancakes for family and friends.
115g (4oz) plain flour
1 large egg
300ml (10fl oz) milk
55g (2oz) melted butter
Maple or golden syrup
Mix the egg into the flour with a wooden spoon then gradually add the milk to form a smooth batter. Alternatively, use a food processor and whiz all the ingredients for a few seconds, then scrape down and process again.
Before making the pancakes, place the butter in a ramekin on the top plate to melt. Heat a frying pan on the boiling plate for a good minute. Pour in a little butter, swirl it around and pour back the excess.
Wipe the pan with a piece of kitchen paper and spoon in a ladle-full of the batter, immediately tip the pan to allow the batter to run around and form a pancake. Once it has set, loosen at the edges and turn with a palette knife. If you’re making a batch, lightly oil the simmering plate and the second sides may be cooked here while you start to make the next pancake in the pan on the boiling plate.
Conventional Oven: Set a frying pan over a medium heat and carefully wipe it with some oiled kitchen paper. When hot, cook your pancakes for 1 min on each side until golden, keeping them warm in a low oven as you go.
