DIRECTIONS

Sift the dry ingredients. Make a well in the middle and add egg and a little milk. Blend the mixture evenly and gradually add the rest of the milk to form a batter. Heat a greased griddel or heavy frying pan slowly and test the temperature by dropping a teaspoonful of the batter onto the cooking surface. You should see air bubbles on the surface within a few seconds. Turn the pancake which will be brown, in order to cook the other side. Cook the rest of the batter in batches (regreasing if necessary between batches) by dropping tablespoonsful of batter on to the girdle or pan. Keep the pancakes warm in a tea-towel as you continue cooking. They are splendid spread with butter and jam.
