The Perfect Pancake Recipe
Prep and cook time: Up to 30 mins
Serves: Makes 8 pancakes
125g plain flour, sifted
1 medium size egg, beaten
300ml milk
a little oil for frying

Method:

Sift the flour into a bowl and make a well in the centre.
Add the egg, then gradually add half the milk, stirring constantly. Add the remaining milk and beat thoroughly, until smooth.
Heat a small frying pan and add a few drops of oil.
Pour a little batter into the pan and tilt so that the batter coats the bottom of the pan.
Cook for 1-2 minutes, or until bubbles appear and the underside is golden. Loosen the edges of the pancake, then flip it over and cook the other side for a further 1-2 minutes, or until golden.

Pile the pancakes on to a warm plate, separating them with sheets of greaseproof paper.

Finish by drizzling a teaspoon of Comvita Manuka Honey Active 5+ (£6.79), the healthy alternative to the traditional refined white sugar and lemon filing.
