Easy Peasy Pancake Recipe

Today is International Women's Day, Mardi Gras, Shrove Tuesday, and Pancake day!
The tradition of making pancakes came around as it is the last day before lent, so it was a means to use up all the fat, sugar and eggs before traditional fasting.

We make these every year with the kids, so its tried and tested, will be doing more after school today!
So happy Pancake Day to you all.

Makes about 8.  Enjoy :)

100g plain flour
Half pint of milk 250ml
1 egg
Pinch of salt
Lemon, sugar, syrup, or whatever you fancy serving with!

Seive the flour and salt into a bowl, then make a hole in the middle.
Crack the egg and drop into the hole in the flour.
Begin to mix, adding about a quarter of the milk.
Gradually pour in the rest of the milk, if too thick add a little water.

You now have your batter mix.  It might be easier to pour into a jug for easy pouring?

Heat a little butter in the frying pan and spread around.  When very hot, stir and pour in some batter, about 2 tablespoons, dependent on the size of your frying pan, you are looking to get a thin layer across to the edges.

Cook until brown on the bottom, won't take long, and then for the fun bit!!!!!!

Toss/flip the pancake over, trying your best not to hit the ceiling.  (You could of course use other means to turn over, but that's no fun)!

Cook the other side till its also brown - not very long.

Pour onto a plate and serve with whatever you like!

Jaspers fantastic flipping efforts :)
