How to make the perfect pancakes

I love pancakes, i will jump to any oppurtunity i have to make pancakes, so most weekends! There is simply not enough time on a school day, bowl of cereal and i'm off! Some people only eat pancakes on Pancake day, but why, when you can have them all year round? This is why this post is going up now not when it was pancake day (it's not just because i was too lazy to take the pictures!). So lets get pancaking!?!
You need:
Plain Flour, 2 eggs, milk, oil, a frying pan, whisk, spatula, ladle, olive oil and your toppings (lemon and sugar for me!).

First you have to mix an egg, some milk and some plain flour, start with the egg and milk, then add the flour till the consistency feels smooth, but not too runny or too solid, it needs to be so you can just about tilt it to cover the pan. Then whisk it.
Next, you have to pour a bit of oil into a frying pan and heat it till it is as hot as Alex Peterfer!

Then turn the heat down to as low as possible without it being off and immediately add just less than a ladle of your mixture to the pan and tilt the pan, so the mixture is spread around the whole base of the pan.

Leave it took cook, it should take a few minutes but check the underneath until it is golden brown. While you are waiting you could read a magazine, get your plates ready or do anything.

Then flip the pancake over and cook until both sides are golden brown, transfer your pancake to a plate and add your toppings, i like lemon and sugar, but you could add: Mayple Syrup, chocolate sauce, whipped cream?


    P.s. mmmmm, those pancakes look yummy :)
