Pancakes

 
Many of us like to mark Shrove Tuesday with pancakes.  I make up a stack in advance because I can’t keep up with the demand, once the everyone starts eating them.  You can make a whole meal with pancakes, savoury or sweet, so here are a few ideas.  I’m sure that people have their own favourite pancake recipe but here is a basic one to start with.
 
·125g plain flour
·1 egg
·300ml milk
·I make mine with butter although I think that it is healthier to use a little oil.
 
Mix the top 3 ingredients together with a balloon whisk or an electric blender. The mixture improves by being made an hour or two ahead and standing in the fridge.  Melt the butter or oil in a frying pan until sizzling and pour a tablespoon of the mixture in.  Swish round until it covers the pan and cook on a medium heat.  When set underneath, toss or turn.
 
Don’t forget the favourite – lemon & caster sugar !
