Steps for making the perfect pancakes

  1. Sift flour and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Make a well in the centre with the back of a spoon then break in the eggs and pour in half the milk. Whisk together, gradually incorporating the fl our to make a smooth thick batter. Beat thoroughly to remove any lumps, then stir in the rest of the milk.
  2. Heat a little oil or butter in a medium frying pan.
  3. Pour 2 tablespoons of batter into the pan, tilting the pan as you pour, until the batter thinly coats the base. Cook over a moderate heat for 30 seconds to one minute until golden brown on the underside. Flip and cook for another 30 to 60 secs, until golden.
  4. Serve with a drizzle of honey, maple syrup or golden syrup, or a sliced banana, or fresh berries.

FLIPPING PANCAKES Hold the pan handle and ease a fish slice under the pancake, then lift and fl ip it over. Make sure the pancake is lying fl at against the base of the pan.
