The basic but appetizing pancakes for 12 people!Perfect for beginners or children!
140g Plain Flour
200 ml whole milk
2 medium eggs
25g unsalted butter,melted,plus a little extra for greasing the pan
pinch of salt(optional)
100 ml of water
Sift the flour into a mixing bowl adding a pinch of salt.Next, make a well in the centre and break the eggs into it.Then,whisk whilst gradually adding the milk and water also start incorporating the flour when the whisking is finished.
Although the whisking stopped you have to start whisking again adding the butter in this time .Make sure it is all mixed extremely well!
Heat your frying pan over a medium heat . Quickly put some butter on some kitchen roll and wipe the pan all around (do this for every 1 or 2 pancakes).Pour about 2 tbsp of your mixture in the pan and swirl it around so it is all evenly coated.
You would want to cook the first side for about 45 seconds whilst scraping on the side with a spatula to make sure it does not stick .When the time is up,flip the pancake over and cook that side for about 25-30 seconds until there are freckles on the back and it start rising in some parts .
Finally,slide the pancake out of the pan on to a plate or make a stack (to make a stack do the same thing but pile the pancakes on top of each other).Serve with sugar,lemon,icing sugar,nutella or any other ingredient of your choice!Dig a folk in and enjoy !
