  1. Mix together the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt in a large bowl.
  2. Beat the eggs with the milk, make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and whisk in the milk to make a thick smooth batter.
  3. Beat in the melted butter.
  4. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan.
  5. Drop a tablespoon of the batter per pancake into the pan to make pancakes approx 7.5cm/3" across.
  6. Make 3 pancakes at a time and cook for about 2 1/2 minutes over a medium heat until small bubbles appear on the surface of each pancake, then turn and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
  7. Cover with kitchen paper to keep warm while you use the rest of the batter.
  8. Serve with some maple syrup, or berry compote or both!
  9. Delicious with a scoop of SuperValu Vanilla ice-cream.
