Cook 5 mins


125g Co-op plain flour
2 Co-op British eggs
300ml semi skimmed milk
25g Co-op unsalted butter, melted
1 tbsp vegetable oil
15-20g Co-op unsalted butter
To serve:
1 lemon, cut into wedges and 6-8 tsp sugar


Sieve the flour into a bowl
This helps take out any lumps in the flour and will add a little air to your pancake mix
If you are cooking with a friend you can help each other
Make a hole in the middle of the flour so that you can see the bottom of the bowl – this is called a well
Crack the eggs into a small bowl and then whisk the eggs with a fork
Pour the eggs into the well then stir the eggs with a fork and watch the flour fall into the egg
Don’t be tempted to bring the flour into the eggs, it will gradually fall in on its own
Once the egg mixture is quite thick, whisk in the milk and watch the flour fall gradually into the batter
Mix in the melted butter, cover and leave to stand for about 15 minutes
Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add 1 tsp oil and a little of the butter
