350 g flour
2 tbsp oil + extra for frying
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
Whisk eggs with sugar,add milk.
Mix together flour,salt,baking powder & gradually whisk it into the egg mixture.
Beat until you have a smooth batter. Any lumps will soon disappear with a little mixing. Let the batter stand for a few minutes.
Heat a non-stick frying pan over a medium heat and add a good knob of butter. When it's melted, add 3-4 ladles of batter on to the pan. It will seem very thick but this is how it should be. Wait until the top of the pancake begins to bubble, then turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown and the pancake has risen to about 1cm  thick.
Repeat until all the batter is used up.They taste best fresh out the pan.
Serve with honey & squeeze of lemon or some jam or compote...
