Serves: 4

Preparation time: 5-10 minutes

Cooking time: allow 20 minutes

  1. Start by combining and sifting the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.
  2. Next separate the egg whites from the yolks. Using a hand mixer, combine the egg yolks with the milk and vanilla and mix into the dry ingredients.
  3. In a clean bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks are formed, then fold into the mixture.
  4. Then heat a little oil in a pan and add in some of the mixture. When it starts to bubble flip the mixture over and cook on the other side. Repeat this until all of the mix is cooked.

 Tip: Put the mix into a squeezy bottle to help control the amount of mix you put into the pan each time.
