Store Cupboard Pancakes

Had a craving for pancakes, had the ingredients on hand and a half hour to spare :) This recipe makes 7 - 8 large pancakes, or enough for 3 - 4 people.

Ingredients :

400 ml milk
2 eggs
1 tbsp sugar
2 drops vanilla essence
200g flour
butter or oil for frying

Method :

1. Place all the ingredients except 100g flour in a mixing bowl.

2. Whisk until smooth, the consistency of milk.

3. Add in remaining flour, and whisk again until smooth.

4. Leave the batter to rest for 10 - 15 mins at room temperature.

5. Put a large frying pan on a medium heat, with a little oil/butter.

6. When the pan is hot pour a ladle full of batter in.

7. Swirl the batter to cover the base of the pan.

8. Leave on the heat until the top of the pancake is firming.

9. Flip the pancake and cook for another 30 seconds to a minute (until it no longer sticks to the pan)

10. Repeat until all the batter is gone. :D

Serving :

A few suggestions for topping, my favourite is sugar and lemon juice as it keeps the pancakes light. Other nice toppings are ice cream, toffee syrup or other flavours of jam.
