Mini Pancakes

This recipe is from DK Children's Cookbook. Not of a shout about this making.

Without deny for pancake, it really goes well with maple syrup and bananas.

150g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
a pinch of salt
150ml milk
1 egg
30g caster sugar

* 30g unsalted butter for frying the pancake

  1. Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into the mixing bowl. Stir in the sugar with a wooden spoon and leave to one side
  2. Crack the egg into a bowl, add it to the milk and whisk them together.
  3. Pour the milk and egg mixture into the flour and beat them and gently fold in the blueberries (if any) taking care not to crush them
  4. Over a medium heat, melt the quarter of the butter in a large frying pan. When the butter begins to bubble, you are ready to start cooking
