Little pancakes

We agreed this morning that we couldn’t wait another 15 days until pancake day. We really like making pancakes. Scrap does the egg cracking and beating then stands on a chair next to me with his plate ready while I cook them. These are American-style little puffy pancakes that you serve in a stack. Sometimes we scatter cubes of cheese into the batter but today we had them with a little knob of butter and a drizzle of maple syrup.

75g self-raising flour
pinch of salt
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
sunflower oil

Place the flour and salt in a bowl. Crack in the egg and add the milk. Beat with a wooden spoon to make a smooth, thick batter.

Heat a little sunflower oil in a non-stick frying pan.

Carefully drop spoonfuls of the pancake mixture into the hot frying pan and cook for 2 minutes on each side until puffed and golden.

Mmmmmm - just made these for our Sunday morning breakfast. The kids announced that it was the best breakfast they'd ever had! Thanks Silvana.
