I remember my mum when we were young she used to make us pancakes for breakfast or as a treat . With honey and lemon juice,maple syrup,jam or even just a sprinkle of sugar on top. My daughter loves them with Nutella . My mum gave me this recipe it makes thick pancakes not the thin ones.

  • In another bowl sift the flour and baking powder,add the sugar and salt.
  • Pour the liquid over the flour mixture and whisk well until smooth.
  • Leave to stand for about an hour before cooking.
