We have the right ingredients for you to enjoy a delicious pancake day with your loved ones.
-200g/7oz plain flour
-350-400ml/12-14fl oz milk, or ½ milk ½ water for a lighter pancake
-2 large eggs, lightly whisked
-1 tbsp vegetable oil
-vegetable oil, for frying
1.Put the flour into a large bowl, make a well in the centre and pour in the milk and eggs. Give the liquid mixture a quick whisk before incorporating the flour. Continue to whisk until you have a smooth batter.
2.Now add 1 tbsp vegetable oil and whisk thoroughly.
3.Take a crêpe pan, or large frying pan, dip some kitchen roll in the oil and carefully wipe the inside of the pan. Heat the pan over a medium heat for a minute.
4.Add just under a ladleful of batter to the pan and immediately start swirling it round the pan to get a nice even layer.
5.Cook the pancake for approximately 30-40 seconds. Use a palette knife to lift the pancake carefully to look at the underside to check it is golden-brown before turning over. Cook the other side for approx 30-40 seconds and transfer to a serving plate.
