- 1 cup self-raising flour
- 1 tbs white sugar
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 egg (lightly beaten)
- 3/4 cup milk
- butter (for frying)
- Pear Jam for serving (and optional cream)
- Sift the flour, sugar and salt together. Beat in the egg and then the milk), gradually, until you have a consistency that you like. The 3/4 cup amount will give the density of a pancake – you can use a little less or a little more (1 cup will make closer to a crepe)
- Heat butter in frying pan over medium heat. Drop tablespoonfuls of the mixture into the pan, not too crowded.
- Cook until bubbles appear on the surface. Flip and cook the other side until golden. Repeat.
