Simply Pancakes recipe
Ingredients (6 Pancakes)
30g unsalted butter, melted (plus extra for the pan)
75g plain white flour
75g plain spelt flour
325ml whole milk
1 large egg
pinch of salt
Place the flour into a large bowl, make a well in the centre and drop in the egg. Add half the milk and whisk briskly until all the lumps are gone, add the rest of the milk and the salt and whisk again. Set aside for at least an hour.
Heat an 8inch pan with sloping sides, or a pancake pan if you have one, over a medium heat. When it’s hot add a small knob of butter, swirling the pan so the butter covers the entire base. Pour in just enough batter to cover the base of the pan in a thin layer, you will need to pick the pan up and swirl it around so that the batter covers all the space.
Fry for a couple of minutes then flip it over and fry for about 30 seconds on the second side. Remove from the pan and repeat the process until all the mix is gone. Don’t worry if the first one doesn’t work out, it does take a little bit of practice - you’ll be a master in no time!
Serve with a squeeze of lemon and a sprinkle of sugar or fruit and yoghurt is also a delicious option.
