I made these using a recipe I found on the BBC Food website and as you can see they turned out ok! The recipe called for a tablespoon of salt however you could still taste it in the finished product, so I think next time I will either add less salt or just make sure I stir it in better!
The recipe said it was for 4 pancakes however the batter it made didn’t seem near enough, although thinking back to the size of my pancakes I think perhaps you’re meant to make smaller ones! Either way, I made 3 nice large pancakes that were thick, fluffy inside and delicious.
135g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp caster sugar
2 tbsp melted butter
Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar together.
Separately, lightly beat the egg and add to the milk and butter.
Combine both and beat until there are no lumps and the batter is smooth.
Let the batter stand whilst you heat a frying pan over a medium heat. Add a knob of butter and allow to melt.
Pour a ladle of batter into the pan and allow to cook. Once you see the top start to bubble you can flip it over. Cook for a futher few minutes until both sides are cooked and remove from the pan.
Continue until you have used all the batter. You can serve with maple syrup or an extra knob of butter on the top if you like (I prefer mine plain and simple!).
