Traditional and timeless…but no less fabulous for that! I still look forward to Pancake Day as it seems to really mark the beginning of spring!

100g plain white flour
250 ml of milk
2 large free range eggs
a pinch of salt
butter to fry
I don’t bother to sift the flour but simply add to a large bowl. Using a large ballon whisk, make a well in the middle of the flour and break both eggs into it. Start to whisk and add some of the milk. Whisk round until you have a thick, smooth mixture and then whisk in the rest of the milk. Leave this to rest for about 30 minutes.
To fry, use a non stick pan and butter for each one. Don’t forget the first couple will be rubbish and are cooks treat! Serve with anything you fancy…I’m a sucker for golden syrup!
