  1. Put the flour into a mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the egg and about half of the milk. Using a whisk, or wooden spoon, mix to a smooth, thick batter. You may need to add a little more milk if the batter is too thick to mix. Children will love getting a turn at stirring.
  2. When the batter is smooth, gradually stir in the rest of the milk until it is well combined.
  3. Add a small amount of oil to the frying pan; just enough to give a non-stick layer to the surface of the pan. Heat on high until the oil begins to smoke, then turn down the heat to medium.
  4. Pour 15ml spoons of batter into the pan. This should make pancakes about 3cm in diameter. Leave each pancake for about 30 seconds. Bubbles will appear on the surface and the mixture will start to set. Flip each pancake over using a palette knife or fish slice and leave for another 30 seconds.
  5. Transfer the pancakes to a wire rack or some kitchen towel on a plate. Now let the children go wild with their choice of toppings. We like raspberries and mascarpone, banana and honey, blueberries and yogurt or pear and crème fraîche.
