Bloggers United!

Pancakes are cheap enough at the best of times, but these are particularly economical. Perhaps even cheaper if made with reconstituted dried milk and a little more water. "A penny saved is a penny earned" as it says on the top of my money-box. How true.

Pauper's Pancakes: makes 8
4 oz (100g) plain flour
1 egg
5 fl oz (150ml) milk
5 fl oz (150ml) water
1 tblsp sunflower oil
Put all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk together until smooth.
To cook, put a little oil into a pan and when hot pour in 2 tblsp of the batter, tipping and swirling the pan so the batter coats the base evenly. When the top is set, flip the pancake over and cook until the underside is golden. Slide onto a warmed plate and keep hot while cooking the remaining pancakes. Add a little more oil to the pan before cooking each pancake.
Repeat (adding a little oil to the pan each time) until the batter is used up.
Note: for a richer pancake use two eggs and all milk (no water).
