pancake day

if you're planning to get involved in shrove tuesday be it crepes or american style, there's always one recipe we use down at the winkwell every year that is so simple, you can't lose.

when shrove tuesday rolls around i'm summoned to the utility room to dust off our ancient copy of the Good Housekeeping recipe book and find the pancake recipe.

Good Housekeeping's simple pancakesmaking the batter is the easy part - milk, flour and egg and all you need to do next is combine the ingredients - idiot proof! flipping the pancake is what people tend to shy away from but the trick is to make sure the pan is hot before pouring the batter onto it.

125g (4oz) plain flour

pinch of salt
1 medium egg
300ml (½
 pint) milk
oil and butter to fry

as i'm obviously a little late on the blog post, why not have these as a complimentary desert to your savoury pancakes. i love to try and channel the french with a ham and cheese crepe!
