 Hey readers,

Who doesn't like a good pancake and with Shove Tuesday this year on 1st March then you need my easy pancake recipe, no stress just tasty pancakes. 

Easy pancake recipe.

Ingredients. 

* 100g flour

* 2 large eggs

* 300ml milk

* 1 tbsp on sunflower oil plus a bit more for the frying element. 

* Lemon juice (optional). 

* Caster sugar (optional). 

How to make pancakes. 

To make the batter sieve the flour, then make a well in the middle. Pour the egg slowly into the well and slowly whish the milk to make a smooth batter. He should be the consistency of pouring milk. 

Heat the frying pan and put a little oil to coat the pan. When it is hot enough get some kitchen roll and wipe away the access of oil left in the frying pan. Add a small ladleful of batter and tilt the pan to swirl the batter evenly and thinly. Cook the pancake for 1-2 minutes or until the pancake is golden underneath. 

Losen the edges of all the pancake with a palette knife. Flip over and cook for another minute or until golden. Slide on the plate and sprinkle some caster sugar and lemon onto the pancake. Of course, you don't have to that you can simply but whatever condiment you enjoy to have on your pancake.
