About this recipe

  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation time:  10 minutes
  • Cooking time: 15 minutes
  • Utensils needed: bowl and frying pan

Ingredients

  • 425ml low-fat milk
  • 225g flour
  • 1 egg
Mixing pancake batter

Method

  1. Sieve flour and salt into a bowl.
  2. Make a hole in the centre of the flour and drop in the egg with 1/4 of the milk.
  3. Stir the egg mixture in the centre of the bowl with a wooden spoon, allowing the flour to fall in gradually from the sides.
  4. Add the rest of the milk slowly, beating well to avoid lumping.
  5. To cook: Pour a thin layer of the mixture onto a hot, non-stick pan.
  6. Use a spatula to turn the pancake over when bubbles start to appear on top.

Tip: Top your pancakes with some banana or berries to get some more of your 5-a-day! To make them healthier avoid adding sugar to the pancake mix and instead add a sweet topping like fresh or stewed fruit.
