There's a request from Yohei for pancakes so I dug out the trusted pancake recipe that I copied from the domestic Goddess' website and made a small batch (ok for the uninitiated: She's Nigella Lawson)

I halved the recipe and made just a couple for each of us to satisfy the craving but you can still make the batter in full and put in a jug, then just pour and use as and when you need. You can probably keep it for a couple of days in the fridge but do give it a good shake / stir before you use it just so everything binds properly.


225g plain flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon sugar
2 large eggs, beaten
30g butter, melted and cooled
300ml milk
butter for frying
Serving Size : 11 blini-pan-sized pancakes

Mix the dry ingredients together, make a well in the middle then beat in the eggs, milk and melted butter (or you can just put them in a blender blitz, just like how Nigella would). Once well mixed, put batter into a jug for easy pouring.

Heat a griddle till hot, brush on some butter, pour your batter in. Wait till it starts to blister on the surface (the little bubbles forming on the top) and it's time to flip over.


Yohei likes his with just sugar and bananas :)
