  • 125g/4oz Cream Plain Flour
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 1 Egg
  • 300ml/½pt Milk

  1. Sieve flour and salt into a bowl.
  2. Make a well in the centre of the flour, break in the egg and add about a third of the milk. Beat well, gradually pouring in the rest of the milk and drawing in the flour to make a smooth batter.
