Its Shrove Tuesday (Pancake day) in the U.K.
150g Wholewheat self raising flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
5 tsp caster sugar
1 large eggs
3/4 – 1 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
3 tsp oil
a little vegetable oil
Sieve the dry ingredients into a bowl
Place oil, milk, oil and vanilla essence in a measuring jug and mix well.
Make a well in the middle and add liquid ingredients.
Beat well until the mixture has the consistency of thick batter, adding a touch more flour or milk if its needed.
To cook, heat a large frying pan over a medium heat with a dash of vegetable oil.
To make sure I get evenly sized pancakes, use 1/3 cup measure to portion the batter into the pan.
In the pan, guide the batter into a circle.
Once bubbles start to appear on the top of the pancakes, they’re ready to be flipped.
Cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side.
