English Butter for frying (mixed with a little sunflower or vegetable oil to stop it burning)
You may want to double the above measurements or even triple them, as you will well know it was never enough & I always ended up having to make loads. You all held the record at one stage in your life as to who could eat the most, maybe you should all get together & see who would win now.
Sift the flour & salt into a bowl, make a well in the centre and add the egg.
Beat with a wooden spoon (I found a small hand whisk always worked better for this part).
Gradually add in the milk until all incorporated & smooth.
Heat the butter in a frying pan, running it around to coat & drain off any excess into your jug that you have mixed your butter & oil in.
Pour or ladle in enough mixture to cover thinly the bottom of your pan.
Cook until the pancake begins to move easily in the pan, ease round the edge of the pancake with a palette knife & when ready turn it over. It will only take a few seconds to brown the second side.
Serve immediately with your chosen topping, mine was always fresh squeezed lemon, lots of sugar & the pancake always had to be flat. Some of you rolled, some left them flat, toppings varied over the years. I remember Simon & Edward Harradine covering them in Ice Cream & Rosie-jayne having a feast of a pancake in Skopelos, but I always remember we had a lot of fun & there was always sugar everywhere.

I haven't been very well the last few days and have spent today laying on the sofa watching the Foodie Channels, being inspired by Nigella and James Martin and getting some great ideas for Hubby's upcoming works BBQ.

I have been looking for something a little more seasonal for the blog and to cook for my adoring family and inspiration came in the direction of Bill Granger appearing on Saturday Kitchen the other weekend, it was like a message from the Foodie Gods. So out came Bills Food and a few recipes were chosen for the following week.

Now I am a little worried that the last recipe required spun sugar and the instructions were a little flaky, so here is a little more help if you would like a go (or get your other half having a go) at spinning sugar.
