  • Place the flour in a large bowl, add half the milk and eggs and beat together.
  • Slowly add the rest of the milk to make a thin batter then whisk in the melted butter, sugar and salt.
  • Heat a little oil in a 20cm non-stick frying pan until the oil begins to smoke.
  • Pour in just enough of the batter to cover the base of the pan and cook until set and just brown on the edges.
  • Flip or turn over the pancake and cook the other side until just set.
  • Turn pancake out onto a plate and repeat to make more pancakes using the remaining batter.
  • To finish, roll the pancake and serve with caster sugar and lemon, or whatever takes your fancy!
