INGREDIENTS (For 8 Pancakes)
120g Plain Flour
2 Eggs
250ml Milk
50ml Water
20g Unsalted butter
Vegetable oil for frying

Equipment you will need: 1 Mixing Bowl, 1 Whisk, 1 measuring jug, 1 Frying Pan.


Measure out the ingredients and add the flour to the bowl. Now add the eggs and the water and mix. While you are mixing this you can add the milk. Continue mixing until you have a smooth batter(no one likes lumpy pancakes).Pour your smooth batter mix into your measuring jug. Clean out the bowl and dry.


Heat up your frying pan and then add 2 tablespoons of oil, when the oil slides around the pan then you know the pan is hot enough. Pour any excess oil into the bowl and add a small knob of butter to the pan. Allow the butter to melt a little, then add enough batter mix to form a thin layer across the pan, tilt the pan if necessary and cook for a few minutes. When the underneath of the pancake is cooked enough it will move when you move the pan. It may need a little help around the sides, maybe with a palette knife or an egg flipper.

Almost There

So here it is! Do you go for the flip? One Handed? Double Grip? Or do you just ease it over with the egg flipper? The choice is yours but you are only few moments away from eating your pancake. Turn the pancake out onto a plate and serve it with your favourite topping/s.
