Step 1: You will need:

  • 180 g flour
  • 2 eggs
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 200 ml milk
  • 75 ml water
  • 30 g melted butter
  • some extra butter, for frying
  • some caster sugar
  • 1 lemon, halved
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 whisk
  • 1 frying pan
  • 1 serving plate
  • 1 spoon
  • 1 ladle
  • 1 sieve

Serves: 4

Preparation Time: 5 minutes

Cooking Time: 20 minutes

Step 2: Mix the batter

Begin by sieving the flour into a bowl. This will help to make the pancakes light as air. Now add the salt, sugar, eggs, milk, water and butter and whisk well into a smooth batter.

Step 3: Cook the pancakes

Place the frying pan over a medium to high heat and allow it to warm through. When hot, add a little of the melted butter, and then three quarters of a ladle of the batter. Move the mixture around so that the batter spreads evenly over the pan. Let it brown underneath for about 30 seconds and give it a little shake to release it from the bottom. It's very important that it doesn't stick to the pan. Also the top should look almost set.

Step 4: Toss the pancakes

Flip the pancake over. Don't worry if you can't do it the first time.Practise makes perfect! And you can always use a spatula! Cook it for a few seconds more and remove. Place the pancake flat on the serving plate. Repeat exactly the same process with the rest of the batter.

TOP TIP: Flip the wrist so that the pan moves in an upward arc which causes the pancake to slide up and out of the pan. A direct lift leaves a partial vacuum under the pancake which tends to keep it in the pan. The movement in the arc supplies the torque to flip the pancake.

Step 5: Garnish and serve

Place the pancakes flat on a plate. Squeeze a little lemon and sprinkle a little sugar over each one before folding in half and then half again to make a fan shape, or you can simply roll them up! Put them on a serving plate, sprinkle over more lemon and scatter over a little more sugar and serve.
