I am such a big kid and every year I have to eat pancakes on Shrove Tuesday.  They are so delicious that I look forward to them for weeks before pancake day. I always have lemon and sugar pancakes, which you can make by following this recipe below.
Makes 4 large pancakes

2 eggs
200 ml milk
110 g / 4 oz plain flour
Pinch of salt
Oil for pan

Place the flour and salt into a bowl, creating a well in the centre.  Crack the eggs into it and mix  together until they form a paste.  Gradually add the milk until smooth. 

Whisk the mixture together until it has the consistency of cream and place in the fridge for a least 30 minutes.

Place some oil into a frying pan on a high heat as pancakes cook quickly and require a very hot pan. 

Add 1/4 (50 ml) of your pancake mixture to the pan and tilt the pan to ensure you evenly cover the bottom.  Move the pan around to ensure the pancake doesn't stick to the bottom, and after 2 minutes flip the pancake over and cook for a further 2 minutes.   If you are not confident about flipping pancakes you can cheat by placing a plate over the frying pan and turning it upside down before returning it to the pan.

Add lemon and sugar to the pancake and serve. Yummy.
