Easy pancakes recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup self-raising flour (sifted)
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • 1 egg (lightly beaten)
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 50 g butter (melted)

Method

  • In a bowl, whisk flour and sugar. Beat in the egg and then milk a little at a time until batter is smooth and lump-free.
  • In a hot pan over medium heat, brush butter over cooking surface and pour 1/4 cup measures for each pancake.
