Here is my foolproof pancake recipe.
You will need:
100g plain flour
1 free range organic egg
about 20g butter, melted
50ml milk and 50ml cold water mixed together in a jug
This serves about 1 person, so to serve more simply multiply the ingredients by how many people there are. I always multiply by four, but then I'm a greedyguts!
Beat in eggs until you have a big, sticky paste
Slowly pour in milk and water while beating slowly
Keep beating until you have no lumps and batter is consistency of double cream (but a bit thicker or thinner is fine too, depends how thick you like your pancakes. I like mine quite thick)
Pour in melted butter and beat until it has been mixed in
Leave for half an hour with a damp tea towel over the bowl
In a hot frying pan, brush some more melted butter
Cook a test pancake to see if the heat is right
Cook all the batter
The last but one pancake turned out like Queen Victoria!
