Making pancakes

These are photographs of residents of Camphill Milton Keynes making pancakes.
A pancake is a flat cake, often thin and round, prepared from a starch-based batter that may contain eggs, milk and butter and cooked on a hot surface such as a griddle or frying pan, often frying with oil or butter.

Traditional British pancake recipe:
120g plain flour
pinch of salt
2 eggs
250ml milk

Add the milk and flour to a large mixing bowl and form a well in the centre with the back of a spoon, then stir in the eggs and milk to create a smooth batter with the consistency of thin cream. 
Heat a pan then reduce the temperature and melt in enough batter to cover the base.
Pour in two ladle-fulls of your pancake batter and swirl it around to make sure it is flat and even. Ensure your pancake remains unstuck then give it a flamboyant flip and catch to cook it one the other side.
Plate up and serve with lemon and sugar or the topping of your choice.
