  • 250ml milk

  • 1.5 tsp baking powder

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tbsp sugar

  • 125g melted butter

  • 3 eggs

  • 200g plain flour


<ol> <li>Mix ingredients together thoroughly into a batter. It may appear lumpy but that's fine.</li> <li>Put a tbsp of veg oil into a skillet which is on hob over medium heat. Using a large ice-cream scoop or ladle, drop a scoop of batter onto the skillet.</li> <li>When loads of bubbles are on top of pancake, flip it over.</li> <li>Cook for about two more minutes and then remove. Only flip pancakes once, as doing it more often will harden them.</li> <li>Enjoy.</li> </ol>

Handy Hint

<p>Not just good on Pancake Day: great for weekend breakfasts, with maple syrup, fried eggs and a couple of slices of bacon or some sausages.</p>

    These are thick and yummy pancakes. If you&#39;re after the thin lacy variety, add some water until you get a slightly thicker than single cream consistency!

    Just made these for pancake day(out tomorrow so have had them in advance!) they were yummy! I didn&#39;t have any baking powder so missed that out by they still tasted good. Thanks

    1 cup milk = 236ml 1 cup flour = 125g (ergo 2 cups 250g)

    Don&#39;t want to appear dim, but how much is a cup as I&#39;m still a few centuries behind and use ounces?
