pancakesIs the first pancake you cook always a throw away? Well it doesn’t need to be. Try our never-fail pancake recipe with some of our decadent topping ideas. We hear it’s going to be a pretty cold & miserable first weekend of winter so there’s no better time to cook them for breakfast, lunch or even dinner. 

Makes 6

1 1/2 cups plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tbsp Billingtons golden castor sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups milk
40gm butter, melted plus extra butter for cooking
1 egg

Combine all dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre & add wet ingredients & whisk until smooth. Alternatively, you can also do this with a stand mixer, using the flat beater.
Heat a frying pan & add some butter until melted. Ladle enough batter for 1 pancake. Cook for a couple of minutes until the batter begins to get tiny bubbles, flip the pancake & cook for another 30 seconds.
