Basic Pancake With Sugar & Lemon (Delia Smith)

Another dish caught my eyes when I saw this at Lian from Whatever You Do
A great dish from Delia Smith for breakfast, I am always intrigued by breakfast recipe, as I often clueless on what to prepare for my family in the morning :)

This is a simple kind of pancake, yet yummy and refreshing with lemon drizzle and sugar sprinkle, love it :)
My kids like it drizzled with chocolate sauce, I find it delicious too :)


What you need:

110g plain flour
pinch of salt
2 large eggs
200ml milk mixed with 75ml water
50g butter

To serve: caster sugar, lemon juice and wedges

  1. Sift flour and salt, hold the sifter high above the bowl so the flour gets an airing
  2. Make a well in the centre of the flour and break eggs into it, whisk til combined
  3. Add milk mixture gradually with whisk, use rubber spatula to scrape bits of flour all around the edge to the centrem whisk once more til batteris smooth, with the consistency of thin cream
  4. Melt butter in a pan, take 2 tbsp and mix into the batter. Whisk and pour the rest into a small bowl to grease pan, using a wodge of kitchen paper to smear it around
  5. On medium heat, spoon batter with a ladle, everything at one go
  6. As soon as the batter hits the hot pan, tip the pan from side to side so the base will be evenly coated. After a few minutes lift the edges up to see if it's tinged gold
  7. Flip the pancake over and cook the other side for a few seconds
  8. Side it out of the pand onto the plate
  9. Serve immediately with sprinkle of sugar and lemon juice drizzle
