Perfect Flippin Pancakes

Fear not!  I know there are some of you googling away and panicking wondering how on earth to make pancakes!  How do I know this?  Well, I’ve had a few calls and texts asking just this :O)  Yep, I’m serious.
So here you go
It couldn’t be simpler, really, trust me!
All you need is 
1 cup of self raising flour

1 egg

1 cup of milk

1/8 cup of sugar

Cute heart shaped dishes are not essential … but they do make it more enjoyable :O)

If you don’t have any just use a normal cup.  You basically want the same amount of flour as milk and then just a couple of tablespoons of sugar and 1 egg.

Okay let’s get to it. 
Mix the flour and sugar in a bowl or jug (notice the bowl I am using has a lip, this makes it easier (in other words less messy) when adding to the pan.  Top Tip :O) 
Add the beaten egg to the dry ingredients and then mix in the milk.

At this stage I find it easier to use a whisk, but a fork is just fine. 
When the mixture is ready set aside for about half an hour before cooking the pancakes.
To cook, place a frying pan on heat with a knob of butter.  Pour in some of the mixture to make your first pancake.  How do you like your pancakes?  Fat and fluffy?  Well add quite a lot of mixture.  Or, if you’re more of a crepe lover, thin and whispy, pour a small amount of batter in the pan.   
Once the mixture starts to show air bubbles, as in the picture, it’s ready to flip!
Oh yeah … it’s flippin time!
If you’re not quite ready for flipping you can use a fish slice :O) 
So … that’s it.

How you serve or eat is up to you.

I like mine plain and simple with sugar and lemon but if you google “pancake fillings” there are a gazillion options out there. 
As it’s coming close to Valentines Day I’ve added a little sugar heart to mine
Using a coffee stencil I sieved icing sugar on top of my pancake

There you go.
I told you it was easy!
Let me know how you get on and tell me how you like yours.
Happy Flippin Pancake Day peeps!!
