Foolproof Shrove Tuesday Pancakes

Ingredients for Making Pancakes:  

  • (Makes 12 pancakes)
  • 225g (8 oz) plain or all-purpose flour
  • Pinch salt
  • 2 large, fresh eggs
  • 600ml (2½) cups milk
  • 2 tsp melted butter plus extra melted butter for cooking

Instructions for Making Pancakes:

  • Sieve the flour into a large baking bowl, add the salt. Make a well in the centre of the flour and add the eggs. Beat well until smooth and lump free.
  • Add half the milk and the 2 tsp of butter, beat well. Add the remaining milk and stir.
  • Leave the batter to rest for 15 minutes.
  • Lightly grease a pancake pan or frying pan with a little melted butter. Heat until very hot and add a ladleful of batter so it evenly and thinly coats the base of the pan. Cook until set and lightly golden.
  • Using a spatula or if you are really brave try tossing the pancake in the air,  and cook on the other side for approx 30 seconds.
  • Slip the pancake from the pan onto a warm plate. Cover the plate with a tea cloth and keep warm.. Continue as above until all the batter is used up.
