We’ve put together a really simple yet surprisingly impressive alternative pancake recipe for you to try at home. Its part pancake, part souffle. The real beauty of this recipe is that the infamous ‘first pancake’ no longer needs to end up in the bin!

Makes 1 large pancake to share
75 plain flour
120ml of milk
2 eggs lightly beaten
Freshly grated nutmeg (optional) 
30g butter
icing sugar
Juice of half a lemon
Pinch of salt

12inch frying pan with a metal handle 
Lemon juicer 
Oven mits 
Sugar shaker


Heat your oven to 220ºC. 
Combine flour, milk, eggs and nutmeg in a bowl.
Beat lightly – don’t over beat – a few lumps are fine. 
Heat the pan on the hob and melt butter until sizzling. 
Pour the batter into the pan and immediately transfer to the centre of the oven and bake for 10mins (do not open the door).
Remove the pancake from the oven, using the oven mits, and shake it with icing sugar and squeeze with the fresh lemon juice.
