For 1 large pancake

Ingredients

  • 125g plain flour
  • 1 medium egg, beaten
  • 275ml-300ml milk
  • Vegetable or sunflower oil, for frying

Method

  1. To make the batter, sift the flour with a pinch of salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the centre, pour in the egg and slowly whisk in enough milk to make a smooth batter, the consistency of pouring cream. Rest for at least 20 minutes.
  2. Heat about a 28cm crepe pan or a smaller heavy-based frying pan over a medium heat. When hot, dip some kitchen paper in the oil and wipe across the surface of the pan. Add a small ladleful of batter and tilt the pan to swirl the batter evenly and thinly. Cook for 1-2 minutes, until the pancake is golden underneath.
  3. Loosen all around the pancake with a palette knife. Flip over and cook for a further minute, until golden. Slide out onto a plate and repeat to finish up the batter – oil the pan between each pancake.
  4. Serve the pancakes with lemon wedges to squeeze over and sprinkle with caster sugar.
