• 100g plain flour
• A generous pinch of salt
• 2 eggs
• 300 ml milk
• 50g melted butter
• Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs.
• Use a balloon whisk to incorporate the eggs into the flour and gradually whisk in the milk until just smooth.
• Brush a heavy based 15 -18cm/6-7 inch frying pan with melted butter, and when hot, pour in about 2 tablespoons of the batter.
• Quickly tilt the pan from side to side to form a thin layer of batter and cook for 1 minute.
• Flip the pancake over with a spatula and cook until the underside is slightly golden.
• Continue with the rest of the batter, brushing the pan with melted butter when necessary.
