A recipe for Sunday mornings and when getting over the night before. Learn it by heart!

Ingredients

  • 150 g ( oz/1 cup) plain (allpurpose) flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons caster (superfine) sugar
  • 300 ml (10½ fl oz) buttermilk
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 70 g ( oz) unsalted butter, melted, plus extra for cooking and serving
  • Maple syrup, for serving

Method

PLACE ALL THE PANCAKE INGREDIENTS IN A MIXING BOWL AND BEAT THEM TOGETHER WITH AN ELECTRIC BEATER UNTIL YOU HAVE A SMOOTH BATTER. Let it rest for 20 minutes.

HEAT A LITTLE BUTTER IN A FRYING PAN. Pour a small amount of batter in the middle of the pan, without spreading it out too much so the pancake is plump and light. As soon as small bubbles appear on the surface, turn it over and brown it on the other side. Keep going until you run out of batter (you should have about 10 pancakes).

SERVE THE HOT PANCAKES STRAIGHT AWAY WITH BUTTER AND MAPLE SYRUP.
