Fluffy Pancakes

So who's sick of pancakes?

Not me ... I had some for breakfast!


How do you make yours?
Mine consists of the following and makes about 5 fat fluffy pancakes or double the amount skinny ninny ones, if that's what you prefer :O)

2 cups self raising flour
1/4 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk

Place the flour and sugar in a bowl and whisk

In a separate bowl whisk the eggs and milk

Pur the wet into the dry and mix gently

Leave the batter to sit for at least half an hour
(this gives you time to prepare the fillings - the fun bit) 

When you're ready to make them heat the pan on the hob

I have a little trick for greasing the pan ...

Get yourself a knob of butter (the real stuff!)

Place the knob of butter in some kitchen towel.

Then rub the pan with the butter to grease it :O) 
(This is how I grease my baking tins for sponges etc)

Pour in your batter

We're almost there

When bubbles start to appear on top it's ready to turn over

Finally you end up with

fat fluffy scrumdiddlyumpscious pancakes.

I am a bit of a traditional girl and normally always go for sugar and lemon. 

However I also love nutella, banana and chopped hazlenuts

Mmmmmm think I might just make up another batch of batter now ........

How do you like yours?

Would love to hear about some weird and wonderful fillings??

p.s. I'm so chuffed, Clodagh McKenna is following my pins on pinterest.  My first celebrity follower :O)
