Sunday afternoon English pancakes

When my husband and I lived in Wales, we used to on occasion go to a friends house on a Sunday evening. 

They had a tradition every Sunday 'pancakes' but not just any kind - English ones.
They are similar to French crepes but the lemon juice and sugar are what make them special.


Here's the recipe-

English Pancakes

4oz All purpose Flour
1 egg
10oz of milk
Pinch of salt

In a 8 inch frying pan this makes 5 pancakes when using a 1/2 cup measure for each one. (We normally make 3x of this mixture for 5 people)

Wisk all ingredients together. Heat up a shallow frying pan and a touch of oil (vegetable oil)

Flip over when the bottom side is speckled with heat spots or slightly brown.

While still hot sprinkle with sugar and drench (that may just be us) with lemon juice! Roll up and eat with a fork - PERFECT! 

My husband only uses oil on the first pancake. After that if you have a good non-stick pan you may find that you don't need it after that.

We don't have these every Sunday but Captain is really happy when we do!
