Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1½ cups milk
  • 1 large egg or 2 medium eggs
  • 20g butter
  • 2 tbsp vegetable or sunflower oil
  • caster sugar and lemon wedges, to serve (optional)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Tip the flour and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and pour in the milk and egg. Whisk together, starting in the middle, to create a smooth batter. It should be the thickness of double cream. 

  • STEP 2

    Heat a little of the butter and oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add a sixth of the batter to the pan, quickly swirling it so there are no holes. Fry on one side for 1-2 mins then flip over and cook for a further 1 min. Keep on a plate, covered, in a warm oven. Repeat with the remaining batter to make six pancakes in total. Serve with sugar and lemon, if you like.
