SERVES 6

 

225g plain flour

pinch of salt

2 eggs

600ml milk

50g melted butter plus melted butter for cooking

mascarpone cheese

 

 

METHOD

Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl, beat the eggs into the milk then whisk into the flour.

Add 50g of melted butter and whisk into the batter.

To cook the pancakes, preheat a 20 cm frying pan and, using a brush, brush the pan with melted butter.

Pour in a little pancake mix to cover the base thinly, cook until set and lightly golden.

Turn and cook the other side.

Continue until you have enough pancakes for your guests.

I like to fill my pancakes with mascarpone cheese and sliced strawberries but you can use any fruit and ice cream or fromage blanc and chocolate sauce or coulis of fruits.

Beat the mascarpone to loosen it a little before placing in the pancake.
