Method

  1. Put the flour, eggs, milk and a pinch of salt into a bowl or large jug, then whisk to a smooth batter. Set aside for 30 mins to rest if you have time, or start cooking straight away.
  2. Set a medium frying pan or crêpe pan over a medium heat and carefully wipe it with some oiled kitchen paper. When hot, cook your pancakes (see Step 3, above) for 1 min on each side until golden, keeping them warm in a low oven as you go.
  3. Serve with lemon wedges and sugar, or your favourite filling. Once cold, you can layer the pancakes between baking parchment, then wrap in cling film and freeze for up to 2 months.

This does NOT make 12 - I got about 5 or 6 from this recipe! Nonetheless, delicious pancake recipe :)

Followed the recipe exactly and sprinkled with lemon and caster sugar when cooked. Missed having them on Shrove Tuesday so really enjoyed catching up!!

This recipe is simple and effective, I don't put the salt in the mixture at the beginning, but with salt in it, they probably still taste the same. I can recommend trying cinnamon, orange, kiwi, apple and syrup on the pancakes, it's amazing!
