Pancakes with thick yoghurt and seasonal berriesPancakes with thick yoghurt and seasonal berries

Ingredients

135g plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

½ tsp salt

2 tbsp caster sugar

130ml milk

1 large egg, lightly beaten

2 tbsp melted butter

Extra knob of butter

Method

:: Sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, add the melted butter and whisk again.

:: Pour the wet mix into the dry and beat with a fork until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing.

:: Let the batter stand for a few minutes.

:: Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. Once it has melted, add a ladle of batter. It will seem thick but this is how it should be.

:: Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about a centimetre thick.

:: Repeat until all the batter is used up. You can keep the pancakes warm in a low oven but they taste best fresh out of the pan.

:: Serve with streaky bacon and maple syrup or yoghurt and berries (or whatever the heck you like).
