For the pancakes
You will need
1 large egg
125g/4oz Plain Flour
Pinch of Salt
300ml/1/2 pint of milk
1 tbsp of melted butter
Sieve flour and salt into a Bowl.
Make a well in the centre of the flour.
Break in the eggs and add a splash of the milk.
Whisk the egg, gradually incorporating the flour, to make a smooth cream.
Whisk in the rest of the milk and the melted butter.
With a blender put all the ingredients in a blender jug, Whisk until smooth (tip: It should be no thicker than single cream).
Brush a hot pan with vegetable oil before adding a ladleful of batter , tipping the pan so the mixture spreads evenly.
When the pancake is browned on the bottom and the very edges are beginning to lift away, give the pan a shake to make sure the pancake is loose. If it is sticking anywhere use a spatula to lift it.
When it moves freely, then you are ready to toss it. The other side will only need a few seconds.
When ready slide the pancake of the pan and onto the plate.
