Pinch of Salt

1 Egg

250ml Milk

 

crepes

 

How to make batter:

Sieve the flour and salt. Make a well in the centre of the flour and drop the egg into it. Add 1 tablespoon of the liquid and mix.

Add half the liquid very gradually so as there are no lumps in batter.

Beat for about four minutes, until the surface of the batter is covered with little bubbles.

Mix in the rest of the liquid, cover the bowl and leave to stand for about an hour.

 

 

Method:

Heat the frying pan with a little butter. When the pan is hot, give the batter a stir before pouring a thin layer onto the pan.

Fry until golden brown. Toss the pancake onto the other side and fry until golden brown.

Dust with sugar, add a drizzle of lemon juice and a little butter.

Try adding raspberries or blueberries!
