- Prep Time 10 min
- Cook Time 20 min
- 115 g (4 oz) plain flour
- 2 medium eggs
- 300 ml (½ pint) milk or milk and water
- Flora Buttery for frying
- -To serve-
- caster sugar
- lemon wedges
- For the batter, sieve the flour into a mixing bowl and add the eggs, mixing well. Gradually stir in half the milk and beat thoroughly. Stir in remaining milk and beat lightly.
- Heat a little Flora in a medium-sized pan over a low heat until fairly hot. Slide it around to grease the pan then pour the excess into a jug, ready for the next pancake.
- Pour a little batter into the pan; tip pan to spread batter and make very thin coating. Cook until the underside is golden brown and the top is covered with bubbles. Toss or turn over and cook until the other side is golden brown.
- Place the pancake on a plate, sprinkle with lemon juice and caster sugar or 2 teaspoons of jam. Roll loosely and again sprinkle with sugar.
- Cover and keep hot under a very low grill, or in a pre-heated oven 140º (120ºC fan oven, Gas mark 1), until all your pancakes are ready. Add more melted Flora to the pan each time to prevent sticking. Serve with lemon wedges.
