For 12 Pancakes:
Melt the butter, and set to one side, to cool a little.
Pour the flour into a bowl, then add the baking powder, salt and sugar. Whip these ingredients together.
In a second bowl, mix the milk and egg.
Make a hole in the flour and pour the egg/milk mix in.
Add the melted butter and mix gently with a whip. It is important to be gentle, and it doesn't matter if there are a few lumps!
Leave to cool for 15 minutes. Bubbles will rise to the surface.
Heat the pan. This is an important stage in the cooking of pancakes or crêpes. For a little oil or melted butter into the pan then use a ladle to pour the batter. This recipe makes 3 to 4 pancakes. Do not spread the batter: just pour it with the ladle. And above all, don't mix the batter. Fry, toss then fry the other side, and it's ready!
