This Father's day make Dad a breakfast or brunch he'll never forget with this easy recipe from Jamie Oliver.
“Take this versatile crêpe recipe in a sweet or savoury direction, depending on what you fancy.”
Cooks in: 15 minutes plus resting
Difficulty: not too tricky
3 large free-range eggs
125 g plain flour
250 ml milk
your choice of seasonal fruits or topping
Crack the eggs into a blender, then add the flour, milk and 1 pinch of sea salt, and blitz until smooth.
Pour into a bowl and leave to stand for 15 minutes.
Melt the butter (or a drizzle of oil if you want to be a bit healthier) in a large non-stick frying pan on a medium heat, then tilt the pan so the butter coats the surface.
Pour in 1 ladle of batter and tilt again, so that the batter spreads all over the base, then cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until it starts to come away from the sides.
Once golden underneath, flip the pancake over and cook for 1 further minute, or until cooked through.
Serve straightaway with your favourite topping.
I sometimes mix it up and swap 75g of plain flour for wholemeal to give my pancakes lovely texture and flavour. To make more American-style pancakes, swap the plain flour for self-raising, dolloping ladlefuls of batter into the pan without spreading it around the base.
