Storage and Stability
Pancakes should be eaten immediately when
prepared, to reduce the likelihood of yours
getting eaten by someone else. It’s unlikely that
you will need to store any left overs.
Once prepared the pancakes may only last a few
minutes on the plate, take steps to ensure your
partner, kids, roommates, etc, don’t eat them all
before you get one!
Different topping combinations can be used on
the pancakes, however make sure you don’t get
the salt and sugar mixed up.
Preparation for use
1. Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and
caster sugar into a large bowl. In a
separate bowl or jug, lightly whisk
together the milk and egg, then whisk in
the melted butter.
2. Pour the milk mixture into the flour
mixture and, using a fork, beat until you
have a smooth batter. Any lumps will
soon disappear with a little mixing. Let
the batter stand for a few minutes.
3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over a
medium heat and add a knob of butter.
When it's melted, add a ladle of batter

pancake begins to bubble, then turn it

golden brown and the pancake has risen
to about 1cm (½in) thick.
4. Repeat until all the batter is used up. You
can keep the pancakes warm in a low
oven, but they taste best fresh out the
5. Eat pancakes – the best bit!
