The healthy option

Here’s the best bit – it takes just two steps to rustle-up this number.

The Shamelessly Easy One

Luxury Pancakes

Anyone can make pancakes. But making pancakes well is a different story. This recipe will keep you straight when you need to show-off your culinary skills – however limited they may be…

Servings: 8

Ingredients

3 large eggs

125g plain flour

250ml milk

Unsalted butter

Toppings of your choices

Method

  1. 1. Crack the eggs and add to a blender along with the flour, milk and a pinch of salt. Blend until the mixture is smooth and pour into a bowl. Leave to stand for 15 minutes.
  2. 2. Melt the butter in a large frying pan on a medium heat, and tilt the pan until the butter has fully coated the pan.
  3. 3. Start pouring in the batter and tilt the pan to get the consistency you desire. Cook for 1-2 minute before flipping (the first couple may go a little awry) to cook for a further minute.
  4. 4. When cooked, serve with your favorite topping. Tradition dictates lemon and sugar as a classic staple, but you can easily brighten-things up with berries, Nutella, maple syrup or peanut butter.
