Step 1

Zest one lemon and mix it together with plain flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a bowl.

At this point you might want to pre-heat your oven to a warm temperature.

Step 2

In a separate jug, mix together the egg and milk with a whisk or fork and then pour into the dry ingredients you prepared in step 1.

Step 3

Mix with the whisk/fork until fully smooth and you have a nice batter.

Be careful not to over mix or the pancakes will be a little on the tough side.

Step 4

On a medium heat, brush a little bit of butter into a frying pan (or a tsp oil if using instead) and spoon in 2 tablespoons worth of the batter in heaps which will then spread into rough circles.

Bubbles will appear on the pancakes when they are ready to flip over using a spatula. Cook until you have enough colour on the second side and then place on a plate in the warm oven.
