2nd step: Slowly start to incorporate the flour in the mixture. Pour small quantities so that there aren’t any lumps. Scrape down the sides and continue whisking. The batter should be creamy, not too thick, and not too thin.

3rd step: Melt the butter in a saucepan. Pour around 2 tbsp. in the mixture and use the rest to lubricate the pan using a wodge of kitchen paper to smear it round before you make each pancake.

4th step: Put the heat on ‘high’ and after the pan gets hot enough turn it back to ‘medium’. If you like, do a test pancake to see if you are using the correct amount and thickness of batter. Spoon the batter into a ladle; so that it can be poured at one go. Tilt the pan so the batter is spread evenly. It only takes a minute for the pancake to cook. Check the sides of the pancake with a palette knife. They are supposed to be in a gold brown colour. Flip the pancake and repeat the step above.


5th step: After cooked, stack the pancakes in a plate.


6th step: You can either serve them with jam and white cheese or with chocolate spread and some fruit you like bananas or strawberries. For the first option simply spread the jam in the middle of the pancake and then put small pieces of cheese on the jam. For the second option spread the chocolate in the middle of the pancake and then place chopped banana or strawberry.
