INGREDIENTS:

- 225 g (8 oz) Plain flour
- 2 Eggs - 600 ml (1 pint) Milk
- Vegetable Oil
- Cinnamon powder*
- A pinch of salt or sugar (this ingredient is added for seasoning depending on the type of pancake being prepared)

* Use small amounts of this ingredient for seasoning.

COOKING INSTRUCTIONS:

1) Mix the flour and seasoning well together, sieving then into a bowl.
2) Make a well in the flour that reaches all the way into the bottom of the bowl.
3) Brake the eggs into a separate bowl and stir them well adding the milk.
4) Pour the eggs and milk into the middle of the bowl containing the flour, then stir all the ingredients together well until the consistency of the ingredients look like a thick cream.
5) Only once the ingredients are well mixed in together you can start whisking them thoroughly. You can add a little bit of vegetable oil at this point.
6) Leave the mixture to rest for around 30 minutes.
7) At this point you can start making the pancakes, but be sure you use a cast-iron frying pan to cook the mixture.
8) Brush some vegetable oil evenly over the base of the pan.
9) Heat the pan thoroughly, then add the first tablespoon of the mixture and swirl it round the pan. A tablespoon of the mixture should be enough for a 12 ½ cm (5 in) diameter pan. If the pan is slightly larger make sure to add a little more of the mixture or else it will be too thin.
10) Make sure the pancake looks even and thin and let it cook until it is golden brown on one side.
11) Once one side is cooked, you can flick it over with the help of a palette knife to the other side and continue cooking for about another 30 seconds.
12) When finished making the pancakes, stack them up on a warm plate covered with a cloth in a warm oven.

Tip: This recipe is well served with lemon, chopped bananas, sugar, honey, ice cream and chocolate sauce. You can even sprinkle nuts over them. There really is no limit to the amount of ways you can accompany this dish so enjoy!
