How to make a really easy pancake with lemon and sugar

For once there's no fruit in veg in this recipe but it's such a classic that I really wanted to share it with you here.

I remember this pancakes so clearly from my childhood despite only having them once a year, on Pancake Day. They we always served with lemon and sugar and there were never any left. We loved them!

They're pretty easy to make and I've done my best to simplify the recipe as much as possible. I don't think it's necessary to make a well, add the milk gradually or leave it to rest for 30 minutes - however it is definitely worth sifting the flour before you add the milk and eggs as it can be a bit lumpy otherwise.

These pancakes are also delicious with other toppings - both sweet and savoury. I particularly like them with spinach and cheese or with roasted butternut squash and caramelised onions.
