Foodie Friday: American style pancakes

I've been slacking a little this week with blogging. Theres been lots going on, we have been crazily sorting things for our wedding(7 weeks to go) and still have loads to do for that and preparing for baby number 2.

Anyway last week i finally found the perfect recipe for American style pancakes, i made them for a family breakfast and they are lush!
4.5 oz plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt(i used a bit less in mine)
2 tbsp caster sugar
130ml milk
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp melted butter
olive oil for cooking

Mix the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl. In a seperate jug whisk the milk and egg and then the butter. Mix the liquid into the flour bowl and beat with a fork until you have a nice smooth batter any lumps should dissapear. Leave to stand for several minutes.
Heat some oil in a non stick frying pan over a medium head and then add a ladle of batter, it should be thick. Wait until the top begins to bubble and flip it over and cook until both sides are golden and the pancake has risen. Repeat until the batter is done.
You can keep them warm in the oven but we ate them as they came out of the pan :)

Seb had stewed blueberries with his and we had Nutella with ours. 
Next time i fancy bacon and syrup.

 These are well worth making!
