Pancake Day. One of our favourite national holidays. It is a national holiday, right?
We can't take total credit for this incredibly tasty recipe - it's from our French friend Robin, who in turn had this passed down to him from his mother.
We love our pancakes with lemon and sugar but if you are making them for a main course, serve with wilted spinach and gruyere cheese.
100g Plain flour
2 level tablespoons of sugar
A pinch of salt
40g butter plus extra for frying
Sift the flour into a bowl, add the flour and sugar and make a well in the middle
Drop the eggs into the well
Pour in the milk and whisk to form a batter
Warm the pan and melt the butter - add the melted butter into the batter
Melt the extra butter for frying and add in a ladle of batter (you want your pancakes to be thin)
Cook for a minute on both side - flip with confidence!
Serve with Lemon and sugar
