Preparation time: 10 minutes. Cooking time: 15 minutes

4 eggs
1 1⁄2 cups self-raising flour

1. Sift flour into a bowl. Make a well in the centre. Whisk together the milk and eggs in a large bowl.

2. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture, whisking constantly until a smooth batter forms.

3. Heat a non-stick frying pan over low heat and melt a little butter or low fat spread.

4. Add 2 tablespoons of mixture, spread quickly to form a circle. Cook until bubbly, a little dry around the edges, and lightly browned on the bottom; turn and brown the other side.

5. Serve these delicious pancakes with your favourite topping.
