Alfred's pancakes

Lettice and Charlotte made pancakes for lunch. Just because they could. I'm not sure what they did (apart from melt Mars bars to go on them), but this is Alfred's killer recipe:

Alfred's pancakes
for about 6

(please forgive the indecisive metric/imperial nature of what follows)

100g plain flour
pinch of salt
1 egg
1/2 pint of milk

Mix all these ingredients together until there are no lumps. Leave it to stand for half an hour. Just before you start cooking your pancakes, add a splash of fizzy water, enough to make the batter the consistency of single cream.

Please could I have mine with Reese's Pieces . . .
That's really a wonderful shot!

Thank you Tanna ... it was my first one, I took several more, but none of them were half as good ;)

Reese's Pieces sound intruiging ... no idea what they are: chocolate? toffee? biscuit?

Lettice that is SO clever of you - I didn't even have to leave the house to find out what Tanna was putting on her pancakes ... what shall we use instead, Lettice???

That photo is hilarious with the pancake over the face! Was that planned? I'd say if it was it took a lot of takes to get it right!
