American Pancakes

I almost forgot to post the recipe for these pancakes I made at the weekend. This was my first attempt at making these, so lets just say the first few pancakes didn't come out as well as the rest! Very simple once you get the hang of it, and once you've got a steady heat on your pan. Try this the next time you want to make a special breakfast for that certain someone.

makes 18
200g seflf-raising flour
100g caster sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 egg
200ml milk
1 tsp butter

1. Mix the flour, sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Beat the egg and milk together, then pour into the well. Gently incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry, using a wooden spoon.
2. Heat the butter in a large non-stick frying pan over a low heat. Add three tablespoons of the batter to form three 9cm circles.
3. Cook the pancakes for about 1 minute, until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip over and cook the other side for 30 seconds, until cooked through and golden brown.
4. Remove from the pan and keep warm (I like to keep them on a plate in a very low oven).
5. Repeat the process until you've used all the mixture. Serve warm, with fresh seasonal berries and maple syrup. Then smile smugly for achieving such a domestic-goddess like breakfast.
