Total Time: 15 mins
Heat rating: 0/5
70ml milk (any type)
1 medium egg - beaten
70g self raising flour
1 tsp sugar
Syrup, ice cream and fresh fruit (eg blueberries, raspberries or chopped banana) to serve
ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE BLEND: Nutmeg, cinnamon, allspice, rose petals, cayenne, long pepper, cubeb, black pepper, cardamon Please note if you're making a bigger batch, you'll need to scale up the fresh ingredients in proportion but the spices only by 2/3 or it will be too spicy!
Mix the flour with the sugar, a pinch of salt and ½ tsp ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE BLEND then make a well in the centre. Whisk in the egg and milk to a smooth, thick batter (stir in an optional 2 tbsp fruit if you like)
Heat a large frying pan then wipe with oil. Spoon the pancake mixture into the pan to make pancakes about 7-8cm in diameter (you may have to do this in batches) then cook for 1 minute or until the pancakes begin to puff up and bubble on the surface, flip over and cook for 1 minute or until golden and cooked through
Serve the pancakes with syrup, ice cream and fresh fruit sprinkled with a little more of the ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE BLEND
