You will need:
- 150g plain flour (can be gluten free).
- 300ml semi skimmed milk (or milk of your choice).
- 2 medium eggs (can use mashed banana or flaxseed mixed with warm water as an egg-free alternative).
- 1½ tbsp olive oil.
Sift the flour into a large bowl and make a well in the centre. Crack the eggs into the well and whisk, drawing in the flour from the sides of the bowl. Gradually add the milk and continue whisking, until you have a smooth batter. Leave to stand for 30 mins.
Add a little oil to a frying pan and, over a medium heat, pour a small amount of the batter into the pan until it coats the base in a thin layer, cook for 1-2 mins each side, or until golden in colour. Enjoy!!
You can then add toppings of your choice such as lemon and syrup, nutella and banana, yogurt and fruit. Or enjoy a savoury one with tomato and mushroom on top or a breakfast pancake with bacon and tomato. Enjoy!
