Traditionally made to use up store cupboard items, milk, eggs and flour before a period of Lent fasting, beginning on Shrove Tuesday. Far too delicious to make just once a year, try serving with fruit and maple syrup, or even bananas and chocolate sauce.

  1. 1

    Blend flour and salt together in a bowl. Make a hollow in the centre and add the egg.

  2. 2

    Whisk the egg into flour and then gradually add milk, until all the flour is worked in and the batter is smooth.

  3. 3

    Lightly oil a frying pan and heat until hot. Pour in enough batter to cover the base of the pan. Cook for 1-2 minutes on a medium heat until underside is golden brown.
