2 cups of milk
1 cup of plain flour
vegetable oil for frying
- Pour the milk into a large bowl. Sift the flour on top and mix well with a whisk. Add the egg, and whisk again until you have a smooth batter. (Don't whisk for too long, though, or your pancakes will become rubbery.)
- Heat a large, non-stick frying pan. When it is hot, add a couple of spoons of vegetable oil, swirl it around to coat the pan, and pour off the excess oil into a cup.
- Pour a ladle of the pancake batter into the pan, swirl around so it is evenly distributed, and cook over a high heat for a minute or so until it is golden.
- Flip over, cook for another 30 seconds or so, and serve with the topping of your choice - lemon and honey, melted chocolate, or just plain sugar.
