I have a good few pancake recipes on here. These were the perfect Pancake Day pancakes. They reminded me of growing up in the UK and it being really cold. Our dinner ladies used to serve them in the playground at playtime and they were so good.
I have to confess to mainly blogging this recipe for me. The original recipe can be found on an excellent blog about all things British – Smitten By Britain. I emailed this to Miss Muffin and Mr jokingly told her to x 3. She did and we ate them all. I may have had 6 but please don’t tell my personal trainer.
Our fillings were the traditional lemon and sugar, coconut and maple syrup, Fix and Fog dark chocolate peanut butter and berries.

300g plain flour (2 cups)
3 large egg – beaten
Pinch of salt
Fillings of your choice
Sieve the salt and flour
Make a well in the centre
Break the egg into the well and stir with the wooden spoon to make a crumbly mix
Combine the milk and water in a jug
Slowly add to the flour and egg mix, stir constantly to help avoid lumps
Whisk the mixture to a smooth batter (The mixture is runny as these are not American style)
Heat a frying pan and spray lightly with oil
Ladle enough batter to cover the base of your pan (a 1/3c in our large frypan)
Cook until frilly around the edges and brown in spots appear on the cooked side
They should take 2-3 to cook each pancake
We made about 18-20 large thin pancakes
