Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy Pancakes

Happy Pancake Day! 

Its pancake day, so of course we have to post a recipe for pancakes. We normally make the fat pancakes, or drop scones as they can also be called. However on Pancakes Day we always have the thin pancakes, or crepes as they are known in France. You can make these pancakes super fancy, however we both adore them with lemon and sugar – nice and simple .

Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday is the day before Lent begins, which is when Christians traditionally fasted, so they made pancakes to use up all the basic store cupboard ingredients, in particular eggs and fat before the Lenten fast. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and lasts for 40 days until Easter Day. These days Pancake Day has become a more lavish affair with people making epic pancakes, and huge pancake stacks or even pancake cakes, however we wanted to keep it simple this year. The good thing about these pancakes is that it uses only 4 ingredients and are so quick and easy to make, we should really make and eat them more often! However, the bad thing about these pancakes is that you can make and eat so many, we sure will be enjoying a fair few pancakes this evening!

Ingredients
100g plain flour
150ml milk
2 eggs
butter or oil for the pan

Method
1. Put the flour in a large mixing bowl and make a well.
2. Break the egg into the well and slowly mix together with a whisk
3. Whisk in the milk a little at a time to make a batter
4. Melt the butter in a low frying pan and then add a ladle of batter to the hot pan. Spread the mixture out and cook until the pancake is golden
5. Flip the pancake (if you are brave enough), and then cook the other side
6. Serve with toppings of your choice – we prefer lemon and sugar
