Ingredients

For the recipe  Easy Pancakes

For the Pancakes:

125 g Plain Flour
about 1 g Salt (pinch)
300 ml Whole Milk
15 ml Vegetable Oil (1 tbsp)
1 Medium Egg

preparation

Preparation

Step 1: Combine the flour and salt in a bowl and make a well in the centre, and break in the egg. Add half the milk and gradually work into the flour using a whisk. Beat lightly until well combined and smooth.

Step 2: Add the remaining milk, whisk gently to make a smooth, creamy batter with the same consistency as double cream. Transfer to a jug, cover loosely and leave in a cool place for 30 minutes. Pancake batter used straight away will give, lighter bubblier textured pancakes. If you leave the batter longer than 30 minutes it will start to thicken so you will need to water it down with a splash of milk.

Step 3: To cook the pancakes, stir the batter gently before using. Using a silicone pastry brush, lightly brush the bottom of an 18cm (7inch) wide non-stick frying pan (internal base dimension) with a little oil and heat until hot. Pour in sufficient batter (50-60ml), tilting the pan as you pour, until the base is covered. Cook the pancake over a medium heat for about 1 ½ minutes until the mixture begins to curl away from the edge of the pan and the top is set.

Step 4: Carefully flip the pancake over using a palette knife and cook for a further 1 minute or until cooked through and lightly golden underneath. Turn on to a wire rack lined with a large sheet of foil and baking parchment. Fold the parchment and foil over the pancake to keep warm.

Step 5: Re-oil the pan very lightly, heat the pan, stir the batter and pour into the pan as above. Repeat the cooking as above, then stack the cooked pancakes on top of each other between layers of parchment, keeping them covered, until all the batter is used up; you should be able to make 8 pancakes. Your pancakes are now ready to serve and enjoy!
