This is a traditional English pancake mix as taught to me by my mum — who happens to be French. It makes five or six pancakes so you may wish to double or triple the amounts.
100g or 4 ounces of plain flour
Pinch of salt
1 Charli's Chooks egg
300ml (1/2 pint) of milk
1 tablespoon of melted butter (optional)
This is a classic fruit cake recipe. My stepmum bakes in September and feeds the cake regular doses of alcohol up to Christmas day. But most of us never plan that far ahead, and early December is a good time to prepare a festive cake. A couple of weeks still gives the flavour time to develop while closer to Christmas you will be too busy with other things.
