I'm going to take a little break from healthy January to give you a really tasty pancake recipe. Everyone loves pancakes and you don't need to have 12 of them on pancake Tuesday and then none for the rest of the year. Their really easy to make! 

All you need is
1 cup of white flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

They couldn't be easier to prepare.

1.In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Make a well in the center, and pour in milk, egg and oil. Mix until smooth

2.Heat a lightly oiled frying pan over medium high heat. Pour or scoop the batter onto the pan, using approximately 1/4 cup for each pancake. Brown on both sides and serve hot.

My pancake is topped with chocolate and cream, a really easy and fast way to make chocolate sauce is to spoon some nutella into a bowl and stick it in the microwave for a minute, alternatively you could have this with sugar and some lemon juice!

Enjoy and let me know what you think!
