Fluffy pancakes - Kiwi Style!

image from

Makes about 12 pikelets or 6 pancakes so just double up the ingredients if you want more!

REVISED - found a simpler and tastier recipe

1 cup self raising flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar 
150ml/4½fl oz milk (little extra if you don't like it too thick)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tbsp melted butter (allowed to cool slightly) or olive oil, plus extra for cooking

To serve
Golden syrup
Or whatever you fancy

Preparation method 
Sift the flour, (baking powder), salt and sugar into a large bowl. In a separate bowl or jug, lightly whisk together the milk and egg, then whisk in the melted butter.

Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and, using a fork, beat until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing. Let the batter stand for a few minutes.

Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a knob of butter. When it's melted, add a ladle of batter (or two if your frying pan is big enough to cook two pancakes at the same time). It will seem very thick but this is how it should be. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about 1cm (½in) thick.

Repeat until all the batter is used up. You can keep the pancakes warm in a low oven, but they taste best fresh out the pan.
