Share recipe


  • 100g plain flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 300ml milk
  • 1 dash oil , for frying


Step 1

Sift the flour and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Make a well in the centre, break in the egg and pour in half the milk. Whisk together, gradually incorporating the flour to make a smooth, thick batter. Beat well to remove lumps, then stir in the rest of the milk.

Step 2

Heat a little oil or butter in a medium frying pan, then tip off the excess into a bowl. Pour 2 tbsp of batter into the pan, tilting it as you pour, until the batter thinly coats the base. Cook over a moderate heat for 30 seconds to 1 minute, until golden brown on the underside.

Step 3

Flip the pancake over with a palette knife, cook the other side until golden brown. Slide onto a plate, then cook the remaining pancakes one at a time.

Step 4

You can have whatever toppings you like on these pancakes - we added mandarins and passion fruit with a warm mandarin juice syrup, made by slowly dissolving 20g of caster sugar into the juice of 4 of the fruit on a low heat.
