Perfect Pancakes

Perfect Pancakes for anytime of the day!!


2 cups of Self Raising Flour
A pinch of Salt
2 cups of Milk
2 Eggs
2 teaspoons of Vanilla Extract
60 grams of Butter
(For a savoury taste, add the following to the perfect pancake mix. Please leave out the Vanilla Extract.)

Sift the self-raising flour into a large bowl and add a pinch of salt. Create a well in the flour.

Whisk the milk and eggs together until the milk mixture is a pale yellow. Slowly pour it into the flour well and whisk until the pancake mixture is free of lumps.

Melt butter in a small saucepan and add to the smooth mix.

Aerate the mixture by whisking it quickly for 3-5 mins.

On a low heat melt a dob of butter and do not raise the heat while you are cooking your pancakes. This stops burning and allows the pancakes to rise properly and cook to a light golden colour.

Pour 1 and a half ladle of pancake mixture into the centre of the pan.

When you begin to see the pancake developing bubbles, gently turn it over. Cook for a couple of minutes more and then serve.
