These easy pancakes are so versatile and quick to make with this foolproof recipe taking just 7 minutes. Keep it classic with a sprinkling of sugar and lemon or alternatively you top with your favourite sweet or savoury flavour combinations. 

Method

  1. Mix the flour, salt, eggs and milk to form a batter. Ideally leave to stand for 30 minutes.

    • 120g Plain White Flour
    • Pinch of Salt
    • 2 Egg(s) (Free Range)
    • 300ml Milk (Whole)
  2. Grease an 18cm/7 inch pan with butter lightly. Spoon 2 tablespoon of batter in a heated pan for each pancake and swirl the pan so that the batter covers the pan. Cook for 1 minute each side.

  3. Transfer to a plate and keep warm while you cook the remaining pancakes.

  4. Serve warm sprinkled with your choice of butter, sugar and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Enjoy!

    • 25g Butter (Unsalted)
    • 1 Lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
    • 2 tbsp Billington's Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar

    Mixture too liquidy and needed more flour to become stable It said 'basic pancakes' but then other comments were said to be crépes.
    So please change title to 'watery crépes'

    These are Crepes but very very tasty. I grated some lemon skin into the batter to give it a zingy flavour. Very simple and lovely xxx πŸ₯ž

    We added extra flour as the batter seemed too runny, but we were using gluten free flour. This is quite an eggy type pancake I think one egg is enough. I am 7.

    Easy recipe, but delicious! I was in a good mood today but since I don't bake often, I didn't have things like self raising flour, turns out I had everything I needed and I can now enjoy the rest of my day after an amazing breakfast 😊
