For the pancakes
To make the batter, tip the flour into a bowl and beat in the eggs until smooth. Gradually add the milk and carry on beating until the mix is completely lump-free.
Now whisk in the melted butter. Place a pancake pan over a medium heat and wipe with oiled kitchen paper. Ladle some batter into the pan, tilting the pan to move the mix around the pan and pour off any excess. Cook for about 30 secs until golden, then flip over and cook on the other side. Pile the pancakes up and serve with your favourite filling.
Chocolate & marshmallow
While the pancake is still warm, spoon over chocolate spread, sprinkle over a few mini marshmallows, then quickly roll up and enjoy with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
For a really indulgent treat, spoon over dulce de leche or caramel sauce, then top with chopped banana and whipped cream.
Lemon curd crunch
Spoon good-quality lemon curd over the pancake, then top with crushed meringue pieces and a little crème fraîche.
