Preparation: 5 mins

Cooking: 10 mins

Serves 4, costs under £1.00


  • 6 Tablespoons Self Raising Flour (110g) (Level Spoonfuls)

Allergy Disclaimer

Always check the label of each ingredient for allergy warnings.


  1. Grease a frying pan with the oil and heat until it is moderately hot.
  2. Whilst the oil is heating, crack the egg into a bowl and beat with a fork. Sieve the flour into the bowl and add the milk to make a thick batter.
  3. Drop the batter onto the frying pan, a spoonful at a time. The pancakes should be a neat round shape.
  4. When the pancakes are covered with bubbles, slip a broad knife or spatula under them. If they are a golden brown colour underneath, turn and brown the other side. Turn once only.
  5. When cooked, wrap them in a clean tea-towel until cool, unless they are to be eaten hot.
  6. Spread with low fat spread and enjoy!
