Basic pancake batter recipe

Perfect pancake and crepe recipes - a good pan is important
©Jonathan Porter/ - Press Eye Ltd -Northern Ireland - 8th March 2011. Prince William and his future wife Kate Middleton make their first official visit to Northern Ireland. The Royal couple pictured starting their visit at Belfast's City Hall and Miss Middleton tosses a pancake for the Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children. The Prince is set to marry Miss Middleton in April.

Makes 8-10 pancakes

  • 250ml milk
  • 120g flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1tsp caster sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Vegetable oil for frying

Whisk all the ingredients together with one third of the milk until smooth.

Whisk in the remaining milk, then strain if necessary. Heat a good non-stick frying pan, rub with a little vegetable oil, then pour in a little pancake mix, and immediately tilt the pan so that the mixture spreads evenly.

Turn after one minute with a spatula or palette knife – or if you’re feeling confident, flip it!

If you need to make a large quantity of pancakes, make them in advance and stack them up between squares of greaseproof paper.

When you’re ready to serve them, re-heat in the oven for a minute or so.

Batter keeps in the fridge for up to two days; just re-whisk it before using.
