Foolproof Pancakes:

Serves 2


  • 150g plain flour
  • 2 medium free-range eggs, beaten
  • 220 ml milk
  • 60g of butter, to fry the pancakes
  • Pinch of salt

Preparation Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°c/fan180°c/gas 6. Butter a shallow baking dish.
  2. Sift the flour and a pinch of salt into a bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour the eggs, milk into the well. Using a wooden spoon gradually beat until smooth.
  3. Place a medium sized (20 cm) non-stick frying pan or crepe pan over a medium-low heat. Add a knob of butter and when hot, pour in a little batter and rotate the pan so that it is evenly coated in a thin layer.
  4. When it begins to set, loosen the pancake with a palette knife and flip over. Cook for 30 seconds more, then slip onto a plate and cover with a cloth. Repeat until you have used up all the mixture.
